What promised to be NYC's hottest event last weekend turned into another food fiasco when the New York City Pizza Festival left attendees standing in a almost empty Brooklyn parking lot with little more than a few slivers of cold pizza.
"It was like the people from Fyre Festival chose to throw a pizza party", attendee Connell Burke joked about the festival, referencing the supposed luxury music festival that served customers disaster relief tents and slices of cheese after the musicians canceled, Gothamist reported. But attendees report they were greeted with "pizza...smaller than a sample size", according to one person on Facebook. So far, 27 people have also joined a potential class-action lawsuit, and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office has launched an inquiry into the event. An administrator of the Pizza Festival Scam Victims page says "a lawyer is interested in this and is investigating what needs to be done".
Hosted in what was essentially a parking lot (a space provided by Pizza Fest's apparent partner, Hangry Garden), the "festival" began an hour late, was obviously lacking in resources, and boasted around five pizza pies cut into micro slices.
To make matters worse, the event organizers also appeared to have sold tickets to a "Hamburger Festival", that was scheduled for the same exact time and place as the Pizza Festival.
"The organizers should be held accountable", they said.

The storm might become a hurricane as it approaches the coast of Veracruz , Mexico , the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday. Hurricane Jose graduated from tropical storm status Wednesday afternoon when sustained winds picked up to 75 miles per hour .
"Those people were sitting, waiting in line to get the burgers that were not there", Burke recalled.
By Saturday evening, the festival's organizers had apologized and warned off attendees who hadn't arrived yet, saying there had been "an incredible amount of delays in pizza delivery". "Fresh, diverse, and delicious pizza was supposed to be delivered every 30 minutes", the post reads.
When Business Insider reached out to Aputumpu for comment, we received an automated response: "Untimely delivery of food delayed the fun experiences we all looked forward to this past weekend". It also added that a "make-up tasting will be announced shortly". "We appreciate your patience".
But Hangry Garden co-founder Jeremy Asgari told the Gothamist that his job was to provide furniture and games for the festival. "All we got was warm red wine that tasted like a-". Others compared the event to Ja Rule's failed Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, where concert-goers were served "literally bread, cheese, and salad" instead of the "uniquely authentic island cuisine experience" with "local seafood, Bahamian-style sushi and even a pig roast" as advertised.
Despite not mentioning any official vendors by name, the event somehow duped people into paying up to $150 for tickets. "There is no way they did not know they were going to come up criminally short of what was promised several days before the event".
