And they created a fake menu to boot
When celebrity TV host and restaurateur Guy Fieri opened up his restaurant, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, in Times Square late last year, the domain name of guysamerican.com was registered for the new eatery.
That might have been because someone else had already purchased the domain of guysamericankitchenandbar.com. And whoever made the domain purchase has also created a fake Guy Fieri-inspired menu.
On the fake Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar menu you can order Guys Big Balls–”two 4-pound Rice-A-Roni crusted mozzarella balls endangered with shaved lamb and pork and blasted ith Guy’s signature Cadillac Cream sauce until dropping off the plate” for $26.95.
On the real Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar menu you can order the Big Bite Burger and Rojo Ring–”Pat Lafrieda all natural Black Angus Beef, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle, super-melty cheese and a slathering of Donkey sauce on garlic-butter brioche” for $17.50

Forestell said the bling wasn’t directly related to any crime sprees or attempts to intimidate people. In fact, she added, the club has a rule requiring its members to remove their merchandise “when committing offences,” and she ordered the swag returned to the bikers.
Too random an act of kindness?
New York City cop Larry DePrimo became a seasonal hero last week when a photo of him giving a pair of boots and socks to a barefoot man on a frigid Manhattan night went viral. While the 25-year-old police ofﬁcer was instantly beloved—and earned an invite to the Today show—it took New York’s media a few days to track down the man with the new boots. When they did, the story grew a lot more complicated. Jeffrey Hillman isn’t homeless, as he appeared to be. The deeply troubled Army vet has an apartment paid for by a benefit for homeless veterans. It also turns out Hillman is still barefoot. He told reporters that although he appreciated the cop’s gesture, “I could lose my life” for wearing the $100 Skechers boots on the street. Continue…
