The Day's Best April Fools' Foodie Fake-Outs
Joke's on you.
Burger lovers weren't the only ones who got the wool pulled over their eyes today. Other merry April Fool's hoaxes included The Daily Beast's launch of The Daily Feast, a new food blog featuring such groundbreaking items as a profile on "The Pasta Whisperer" and a piece on Gary Vaynerchuk's new action figures. Then there was Slice's news that the Naples Tourism Bureau would be sponsoring the site for the next six months, resulting in all-Neapolitan-style coverage for the duration (not quite last year's AHT Big Mac review, but extra points for translating the notice in Italian). Finally, there was the ol' Alinea food truck prank. Classic.
