Now there’s apparently no guys.

Five guys were arrested at a Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Florida after allegedly getting into a fistfight, authorities said.

The Stuart Police Department announced the arrests on Facebook: “Five guys were involved in the fight, and those five guys found themselves under arrest,”

A witness said a cup was thrown and a door slammed in someone’s face before an “all-out brawl” broke out, according to an arrest report. The cause of the fight is unknown.

Three male juveniles and two adult men were charged with affray and processed at the Martin County Jail, police said. Florida law defines affray as a first degree misdemeanor charge resulting from two or more people fighting in a public place and disturbing the peace, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Keith Morine and Loren Perine, of Stuart, who are both 18, were arrested and booked into the Martin County Jail, the newspaper reported. The three male minors were fingerprinted, booked into the jail and later released to parents.

national ice cream day origins

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news national ice cream day origins fox-news/food-drink/recipes/meals/holiday fox news fnc/food-drink fnc Emily DeCiccio article a10bdf52-402b-5d59-9dda-555d9a9bd15a

I scream, you scream, we’re all screaming for National Ice Cream Day.

Whether you prefer to jump for joy or silently savor the dessert, bringing people together is what ice cream is all about, according to Carla Noboa, the owner and founder of BIVE Ice Cream Shop in New York City.

“I feel that ice cream is way to make people happy and a to-go product that consumers are wanting as a dessert and treat to share with others,” said Noboa, who shared her passion for the delectable dessert with Fox News — and helped to deliver the scoop (pun intended) on the day dedicated to ice cream.

National Ice Cream Day was first recognized by President Ronald Reagan, but it was never meant to be celebrated annually.

“National Ice Cream Day was only supposed to be one day — in fact, Ronald Reagan actually signed a resolution to make National Ice Cream Day on July 15, 1984,” explained Noboa.  “Despite the resolution only mentioning that specific day in 1984, Americans love ice cream and continued to celebrate it every year on the third Sunday in July.”

But while President Reagan put a day dedicated to ice cream in the history books, he was not the first president to enjoy the sweet dessert. “George Washington apparently loved ice cream, and in one summer, he literally spent $200 on ice cream,” Noboa told Fox News.

Unfortunately, however, America’s first president did not get to enjoy his ice cream in a cone, largely because the ice cream cone wasn’t invented until 1904. “Ernest Hamwi, who participated in the St. Louis World’s Fair, had a waffle booth next to an ice cream seller,” explained Noboa. “The ice-cream seller ran out of dishes, so Hamwi actually rolled a waffle to hold his neighbor’s ice-cream and then the cone was born.”

Now that you know how thsi delectable day came into being, here are some ways you can celebrate:

Carla Noboa’s BIVE will offer an extra scoop for customers who buy a single scoop of ice cream, along with a free cone, on July 21.

Serendipity at Boca Raton Resort & Club in Florida will offer its Golden Opulence Sundae, which sells for $1,000, and includes 50 scoops of gourmet ice cream, sorbets, a handmade chocolate spire, and edible 24 kt gold leaves.

Alamo Drafthouse will be offering a “Furious George” cookies and cream milkshake mixed with Monkey Shoulder Malt Scotch Whiskey.

Can’t eat the cold stuff? Here are some ice cream-themed games:

– Oops Scoops (YULU) – Stack the ice cream scoops on the shaking cone, if the tower topples over you are out of the game!

– Ice Cream Cart (PLAYMOBIL) – Build your Ice Cream Cart and bring the set to life with figures and accessories included.

– Foodie Surprise Ice Cream Food Cart (RedwoodVentures) – Deconstruct the ice cream themed food cart to reveal all supplies and ingredients needed to make your own gummy candy.

Celebrate National Hot Dog Day with 5 fascinating frankfurter facts

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5485767507001_5485765821001-vs Celebrate National Hot Dog Day with 5 fascinating frankfurter facts fox-news/food-drink/food/food-trends fox news fnc/food-drink fnc article 5f6d8f0c-3e6a-5dd4-af02-9a8f24be2062

The hot dog is one of the most relished foods in all of American cuisine, so it makes perfect sense that citizens would want to savor the mildly spiced sausages on National Hot Dog Day, our nation’s most delicious of holidays.

According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (yes, it’s a real organization), “peak hot dog season” begins on Memorial Day and goes through Labor Day, with Americans typically consuming around seven billion hot dogs during that time.

We’ve collected five pieces of frankfurter trivia to tide you over until your next salty, savory bite:

1. Don’t call a hot dog a “sandwich.”

In a 2015 press release, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council decreed that the hot dog is not a sandwich, despite it having many of the same components as most sandwiches. “Limiting the hot dog’s significance by saying it’s ‘just a sandwich’ category is like calling the Dalai Lama ‘just a guy,’” stated NHDSC president Janet Rikey, aka the “Queen of Wien.”

The USDA’s guidelines, however, seem to suggest that hot dogs are indeed sandwiches, as they consist of “two slices of bread or the top and bottom sections of a bun that enclose meat or poultry.”

Even Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ruled the hot dog to be a sandwich based on that definition.

OSCAR MAYER ASKS FANS TO HELP WITH IMPORTANT DECISION

But as the NHDSC countered in their press release, “terminology changes” with the times, and hot dogs no longer fit as snugly into the “sandwich” category as they do a split-top bun.

“While we thank the USDA for their careful regulation and inspection of our products, regulatory brevity is not their strength,” the NHDSC said.

Oscar Mayer, meanwhile, is still dead-set on categorizing hot dogs as sandwiches.

2. Several people actually purchased the “world’s most expensive hot dog.”

The now-closed Tokyo Dog foot cart in Seattle holds the Guinness World Record for offering the world’s most expensive commercially available hot dog back in 2014.

The frank — or the “Juuni Ban,” as it was called — cost $169, and consisted of a foot-long smoked cheese bratwurst topped with Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, $250-per-ounce caviar, Japanese mayo, Teriyaki grilled onions and a brioche bun.

According to Tokyo Dog’s old press page, the cart sold six of the record-breaking Juuni Ban dogs in total, with all of the proceeds going to the American Red Cross.

3. Most of us will never get the chance to drive the Weinermobile.

The job of driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile used to be reserved for graduating college seniors, preferably with a bachelor’s degree in marketing, public relations, advertising, journalism or communications, although that particular stipulation no longer seems to be a requirement. (Oscar Mayer says candidates should still have a BA or BS, “preferably in public relations, journalism, communications, advertising or marketing.”) Furthermore, the position only lasts for one year, from June to June, before drivers (aka “Hotdoggers”) are replaced with a new batch of drivers.

Oscar Mayer didn’t specify how many Hotdoggers it was be hiring in its latest job posting, though the company does say on its website that there are currently only six Wienermobiles traveling the country “at any given time.”

Each driver is also required to undergo about 40 hours of training before getting behind the wheel of the 27-foot vehicle, though that hasn’t prevented one driver from accidentally accelerating into a house and crashing the Wienermobile into a stranger’s deck and garage.

4. William “The Refrigerator” Perry isn’t as good at eating hot dogs as he looks.

It’s well-known that competitors at the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island consume an unseemly amount of hot dogs — the current record-holder, Joey Chestnut, ate 74 in just 10 minutes in 2018 — but rarely do any of them make news for how little they manage to eat.

The lone exception, arguably, is William “The Refrigerator” Perry, who competed in 2003 as a “celebrity contestant.” Despite eating 12 hot dogs in 12 minutes during the qualifying rounds, Perry only managed to eat four hot dogs, and quit after just five minutes. The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest hasn’t held a “celebrity contestant” since.

5. Nobody knows for sure how hot dogs got their name.

The etymology of the term “hot dog” is unclear, but the Oxford English Dictionary posits that the name was “probably influenced by a popular belief that the sausages contained dog meat.” The Online Etymology Dictionary even adds that these beliefs were “occasionally justified” — a statement bolstered by early 20th-century reports by the New York Times and the United States Department of Commerce on the consumption of such meats.

Bruce Kraig, a “hot dog historian” and professor at Roosevelt University in Illinois, also offered an alternate theory, telling the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council that the German immigrants who popularized frankfurters in North America were also responsible for popularizing dachshunds, and the name “probably began as a joke about the Germans’ small, long, thin dogs.”

DoorDash fires delivery driver who allegedly ate customer’s barbecue ribs, dropped off food with bite marks

A man in Pennsylvania is accusing his delivery driver of speeding off with a bellyful of barbecue.

Chris Payton, of York County, claims he ordered six ribs from a local barbecue restaurant via DoorDash, only to discover that the driver had helped herself to two of the ribs, and some waffle fries, before dropping them off.

“I guess she just pulls over to the side of the road and just decides to have herself a little snack before she delivers,” Payton told Fox 43.

Payton had also taken photos of his incomplete order, noting that the two ribs appeared to be “torn off” from the rest of the meat. Fox 43 reported that bite marks appeared to be left behind, too.

Surprisingly, the eatery that provided the ribs — Dickey’s Barbecue, located in West Manchester Township — told Fox 43 that this wasn’t the first time they fielded complaints about that very DoorDash employee, or “Dasher.”

DoorDash has since confirmed to Fox News that the offending “Dasher” is no longer working with DoorDash.

“We sincerely regret that this incident fell short of the experience we strive to give our customers every day,” a DoorDash spokesperson confirmed. “We reached out to this customer immediately after being notified of this event. We have since taken appropriate actions, including deactivating the Dasher from our platform for failing to follow and maintain our standards of food safety.”

The company reportedly issued Payton a refund, but he’s also hoping the employee learned a lesson in treating customers with respect.

News of the alleged barbecue bandit follows a similar complaint lodged against a DoorDash delivery driver earlier this year. In March, a customer in Stockton, Calif., claimed his “Dasher” took a sip of his milkshake before dropping it off, although he didn’t discover the driver’s dirty deed until later, when he watched his family’s front-door surveillance footage.

DoorDash, which was founded in 2013, pays the Dashers that act as independent delivery drivers for restaurants in their area. Restaurants can apply to appear on the DoorDash app and website to be included among a specific area’s delivery offerings.

Sorority cancels national convention, donates 17,000 meals to Hurricane Barry victims

Massive helpings of chicken, potatoes au gratin, macaroni and cheese and flourless chocolate cake didn’t go to waste when Delta Sigma Theta sorority’s national convention in New Orleans was unfortunately cut short due to Hurricane Barry. The Greek-lettered organization for collegiate women donated 17,000 meals to those affected by the storm.

Before Hurricane Barry made landfall in the Big Easy on Saturday, officials for the sorority made the difficult decision to end their biennial meeting, which roughly 16,000 people were expected to attend through the weekend, due to the storm, the Washington Post reports.

Thanks to the generosity of Delta Sigma Theta, however, one silver lining soon emerged. Reps for the sisterhood instructed the event caterer, Centerplate, to donate 17,000 uneaten meals to those affected by the hurricane through the Second Harvest Food Bank.

“With 16,000 attendees and two food functions canceled, there were inordinate amounts of food that would have been wasted,” Beverly E. Smith, national president of the sorority, said on Facebook. “Kudos to Centerplate!”

“To have all these meals ahead of time is really a godsend,” Amy Sins, a New Orleans chef who helped coordinate the recovery effort, told the Post.

“We’re not just trying to feed their tummies,” she continued. “We’re also kind of trying to feed their soul.”

The gesture hit especially close to home for Sins, who lost her own house to Hurricane Katrina.

“It’s really heartwarming for these ladies … when their major conference gets canceled, the first thing they thought of was to help other people,” Jay Vise, a spokesman for Second Harvest Food Bank spokesman, told BET.

Founded in 1913 at Howard University, the Delta Sigma Theta aims to “promote academic excellence and provide assistance to those in need,” according to their mission statement, with an emphasis on the African-American community.

The Taco Bell tortilla shortage is finally over: ‘Impacted restaurants should be offering our full menu’

Westlake Legal Group 26dd8953-Taco-Bell-sign The Taco Bell tortilla shortage is finally over: 'Impacted restaurants should be offering our full menu' Michael Hollan fox-news/food-drink/food/fast-food fox news fnc/food-drink fnc cc54b6fa-3f09-5cdd-a071-f31f5299e2b9 article

There’s no need to panic: the great Taco Bell tortilla shortage of 2019 has come to an end.

Taco Bell confirmed to Fox News that they’ve resolved the issues with their suppliers and that the affected restaurants should be able to offer customers the entire menu. This includes all burritos and quesadillas.

A spokesperson for Taco Bell told Fox News, “We appreciate our burrito-loving customers’ patience. We have worked closely with our suppliers to resolve any shortages, and most, if not all, of our impacted restaurants should be offering our full menu so fans can now enjoy their Taco Bell favorites from the classic Bean Burrito to the new Steak Reaper Ranch Fries burrito.”

Prior to this, the company was going through what many on the internet were calling the “tortillapocalypse.” While it wasn’t clear how widespread it was, customers in the Midwest and along the East Coast claimed that Taco Bell’s had run out of the flour tortillas used for burritos and quesadillas, Nation’s Restaurant News reports.

At the time, Taco Bell confirmed to Fox News that certain locations were dealing with ‘supplier shortages.’ A spokesperson said, “While some Taco Bell restaurants are experiencing supplier shortages, we are working diligently to replenish the supply of our tortillas (used for products like quesadillas and burritos) in those restaurants and encourage fans to try the Chalupa Cravings Box in the meantime. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and appreciate our customers’ patience.”

If there’s one lesson that everyone should take away from this entire experience, it’s never to take burritos for granted. Cherish your next quesadilla like it’s the last one in the world, because you never know when the next “tortillapocalypse” will strike.

Burger King customers seen telling manager to ‘go back to Mexico’ in viral video

Burger King is speaking out in defense of a general manager in Florida after customers were filmed telling him to “go back to Mexico.”

The incident, which took place at a Burger King in Eustis, Fla., was overheard and filmed by Neyzha Nicole, another fast-food patron who posted the video to social media on Saturday.

PETITION CALLS FOR MCDONALD’S, BURGER KING TO REMOVE PLASTIC TOYS FROM KIDS’ MEALS

In the footage, two elderly women are first overheard arguing with general manager Ricardo Castillo, reportedly after flagging him down to complain about how he was speaking Spanish to another employee.

“Go back to Mexico if you want to keep speaking Spanish. Go back to your Mexican country, your state, your country,” one of the women can he heard saying loudly in the restaurant dining room.

“Guess what, ma’am? I’m not Mexican,” Castillo responds. “I’m not Mexican, but you’re being very prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant right now.”

“I’ll finish my meal, and then I’ll go,” she says.”

“You know what? I’ll do it for you, ma’am. I’ll call the cops,” Castillo says, before calling them both “ignorant” and “disrespectful.”

Castillo then reveals that the owner of this Burger King is actually a Mexican-American man, and waits for the women to get up and leave.

Nicole is then heard apologizing to Castillo for having to endure the incident, and offers to send him the footage she just filmed.

“He was handling it well and very professional, which I applaud him for very much,” said Oni Martinez, another customer in the restaurant, to Fox 35.

Burger King’s corporate offices became aware of the video as well, and issued a statement condemning the discrimination seen in the video.

“There is no place for discrimination in our restaurants,” Burger King said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We expect employees and guests to treat each other with respect.  This incident took place at a franchised restaurant and the owner is looking into the matter.”
