Brooklyn Pizza Festival Enrages Attendees, Drawing Comparisons to Fyre

Not Released

'This was a rotten scam, they promoted this as a pizza festival and a hamburger festival, ' writes the admin. People who arrived early said there were about 5 pies cut into micro slices of really bad pizza.

Local foodies attending a pizza festival in Brooklyn over the weekend were left with a bad taste in their mouths after shelling out big bucks for "tiny little slivers of pizza" - which were "cold and tasted terrible", according to patrons.

However, the reality was a far more tragic affair, consisting of paper plates, polyester table cloths and pizza slices tiny enough to make a grown man shed a tear of dough-deprived melancholy.

So traumatic are those who did attend, that they've now set up a victim support group on Facebook, called Pizza Festival Scam Victims. "Clearly this is a scam and the organizers should be held accountable".

According to Gothamist, the people behind the pizza event also held a "Hamburger Festival" on Saturday at the same exact time and place - but apparently forgot to bring the burgers. "And when they tried to eat pizza, the people were like, 'No, no, that's for the pizza people'".

In a post on the festival's Facebook page, organizers blamed Hangry Garden, an "event curation" service for mobile food vendors and pop-up events. He said he had planned on deliveries of pizza to supplement on-site ovens and pizza-making that had "pulled out at the last minute", but the deliveries were "delayed". A make-up tasting will be announced shortly.

"These people need to be sued", another said.

"Trucks were still driving around when the event supposed to have started", the Pizza Festival Facebook page told one patron. A note posted to Facebook this morning-signed by organizer Ishmael Osekre and the "Pizza/BurgerFest Team"-claims festival attendees will be issued refunds for tickets they purchased to the failed events".

"We chose to do both on the same weekend 'cause of last week's flooding in Houston and just the rains and everything", Osekre explained in a call to Metro last week after not replying to e-mailed requests for a full vendor list in the past two weeks. "We appreciate your patience".

"We at Hangry Garden apologize for any inconvenience this has caused", it continued, adding that attendees can email them for two free drink tickets for their next event with the company. Co-founder Jeremy Asgari says he "didn't think this was going to be a subpar event", given the response online (84,000 people clicked "interested" on Facebook). I also pray for them, because God will deal with them accordingly.
