  • FieriCon, the now-annual and inexplicable celebration of Guy Fieri, will return this weekend in NYC. Participants will honor the mayor of Flavortown via a five-stop bar crawl that ends, naturally, at Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, Fieri’s Times Square restaurant. As organizers say on the official website, showing up in Fieri cosplay is not required to participate, “but it is highly encouraged.”
  • Black Tap, the New York City purveyor of gimmicky, cake-topped milkshakes, will open a location in Anaheim’s Downtown Disney — basically ensuring the brand’s global Instagram domination.

  • MTV’s Jersey Shore reboot — the Florida-Alabama-based series called Floribama Shore now faces a lawsuit from Pensacola, Florida’s famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar. The 53-year-old beach bar has filed a cease-and-desist against the use of the “Flora-Bama” name.
  • Pringles is testing a “Thanksgiving dinner”-flavored snack packs, with chips that taste like turkey, creamed corn, and pumpkin pie.
