New York Pizza Festival Turns Out To Be A "Rotten Scam" & People Are Calling It The Fyre Festival Of Pizza — See Why!

Not so special delivery… A pizza festival in Bushwick, NY is being burnt to a crisp by ticket holders who say the event failed to deliver on its za supply and quality! Shortly after the New York City Pizza Festival began at 3 p.m. on Saturday for "a day long celebration of the dough, cheese, tasty sauces [...] Not so special delivery... A pizza festival in Bushwick, NY is being burnt to a crisp by ticket holders who say the event failed to deliver on its za supply and quality! Shortly after the New York City Pizza Festival began at 3 p.m. on Saturday for "a day long celebration of the dough, cheese, tasty sauces and delicious toppings," upset attendees warned others the festival was a complete disappointment. Related: Hillary Clinton Surprises Supporters With PIZZA! One commenter wrote on the event's Facebook page: "This thing is a joke!!! 4 tents, plates with small slices, over an hr wait to get in and we are still waiting now!! Don't bother peeps!" If that wasn't bad enough, many fuming foodies -- who spent up to $75 a ticket -- also began uploading photos of the slivers of slices they were given (above, minus the rapper) at the empty venue: All these people showed up for the New York City Pizza Festival but the tents are empty lolA post shared by Kizzle Shizzle (@krg7880) on Sep 9, 2017 at 1:39pm PDT Others couldn't help but compare it to Ja Rule's ill-fated Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, the supposed luxurious island getaway concert that ended up being a dumpster fire. Related: Fyre Festival Founder Arrested And Charged With Fraud! Organizers for the event posted an explanation on Facebook Saturday evening, saying they "had been hit by an incredible amount of delays in pizza delivery," adding: "Fresh, diverse, and delicious pizza was supposed to be delivered every 30 minutes. A make-up tasting will be announced shortly. Sincere apologies. Please do not come for the rest of the night's tastings. Apologies for inconvenience!" Of course, peeved ticket holders weren't satisfied with the half-baked apology. A separate Facebook group has been created threatening legal action against the "rotten scam," declaring: "This was a rotten scam, they promoted this as a pizza festival and a hamburger festival. People who arrived early said there were about 5 pies cut into micro slices of really bad pizza. There were no hamburgers! Clearly this is a scam and the organizers should be held accountable." Some attendees reported receiving a ticket refund, while others said they are having trouble getting their dough back. [Image via Facebook.].....»»

Weekend Box Office: "Gravity" Defies

[caption id="attachment_22143" align="aligncenter" width="575" caption="Off we go, into the unknown."][/caption] Here's how it looks: 1. Gravity 3D (Warner Bros) NEW [Runs 3,575] PG13 Friday $17.5M, Saturday $23.5M, Weekend $55.5M 2. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 3D (Sony) Week 2 [Runs 4,001] PG Friday $4.7M, Saturday $9.4M, Weekend $21.5M (-37%), Cume $60.5M 3.

Rush (Imagine/Universal) Week 3 [Runs 2,308] R Friday $1.4M, Saturday $2.0M, Weekend $4.5M, Cume $18.2M Last week I wrote that I was worried about "Gravity" attracting an audience, despite stellar reviews. I wondered if audiences would feel like 3D and IMAX prices were worth it just to see Sandra Bullock floating in space. I mean, sci-fi without battles, robots, things exploding? Would moviegoers buy that? Well, it looks like I was wrong--audiences did indeed buy it, making the movie number one for the weekend and helping it break a number of records: largest October opening weekend, largest IMAX opening in October, largest openings ever for Bullock and Clooney, and 2nd largest for Cuaron (I would guess that his entry in the Harry Potter franchise is first). I've got to tell you, this is a time when I'm just thrilled to be wrong--there's nothing more discouraging then when someone makes a good movie and no one comes to see it. Congratulations, moviegoers of North America. You're awesome--and so is "Gravity." Go see it, and see it in 3D and IMAX if possible--if you've been waiting for a movie to make the 3D prices and annoying glasses worthwhile, this is it. And it's only 90 minutes, no Oscar bait bloat here. Thank you, Mr. Cuaron, Ms. Bullock, and Mr. Clooney. As for the other new opener this weekend, "Runner Runner," well, that flopped, which surprised no one. Did you see any ads for it? I think I saw one. It has that look of Ben Affleck saying, "I've just spent a lot of time directing a movie and I'm not sure how it's going to do, so let me just star in this and pick up a quick paycheck." I can't imagine anyone, other than the relatives of the people involved--and maybe not even them--feeling motivated to drag themselves out of their houses on a lovely (or rainy, depending on where you are) October weekend to see this movie, which looks like a Netflix pick for when you've just run out of ideas. So on to next week! Or actually not--this is the last entry for this blog. I'd like to thank Hollywood for providing me with enough news to write about each day (most of the time--there certainly were some dry spells). Thank you to casting rumors, box office reports, "10 best lists" and nominations, and film festivals where deals are announced. Thank you to projects that linger for years, generating endless posts (I'm thinking of you, "Highlander" and "The Crow" remakes). Thank you to movies that take forever to cast, like our number one movie this weekend, "Gravity"--remember when they thought it would star Angelina Jolie or Natalie Portman with Robert Downey Jr.? Thank you to troubled productions that generate an endless spiral of posts, like Portman's "Jane Got a Gun," which whipped through a directors and actors like used tissues for a brief comet-like run this March. Most of all, thank you to any of you who ever read anything over here. Oh, and of course I'd like to thank the Academy. Because everyone wants to thank the Academy......»»
