Last year, chain pizzeria Papa John’s introduced a cheesesteak-themed pizza for some reason. If you missed the cheesesteak pizza party at the end of 2014 and this seems like a good idea to you, Papa John’s is offering the pizza again until April 26. You can get a large pizza for for $12. A review in the blog Brand Eating described the pizza as “good but not great.” [Brand Eating]
Well, this explains that Goombah Pizzeria owner’s apparent anger management issues: he was a former hit-man who’d served prison time in 2004 after pleading guilty to 2 murders.
Joseph Milano, the owner of Goombah’s Pizza in Palm Coast, Florida—and no, we’re not making up that name—was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he struck a customer in the face with a gun, then leaped over the counter and began beating up the customer and his roomate. The man had ordered a takeout calzone, and was at the counter asking for a refund because he said the calzone had been prepared incorrectly. Wait, is this a theme restaurant? Update: Yeah, it sorta is: it turns out the owner is a former hitman for the mafia.
