Dylan Dine And Dash

The staff at a Massachusetts pizza parlor thought they’d hit the jackpot Nov. 20 when a man reportedly wearing a Bob Dylan backstage pass placed a hefty pizza order, but they were sadly mistaken.

The alleged con man walked into Antonio’s in Amherst at about 2 a.m. and ordered 178 extra-large gourmet pizzas at a cost of $3,900 under the premise of buying them for Dylan and company, which had a concert at the Mullins Center the night before. He said he’d be back in a few hours to pay for the order, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

The man never returned, so the manager called the police.

Antonio’s owner Walter Pacheco, who was not in the building at the time, said the man was convincing.

“They gave him the benefit of the doubt, they thought this guy was for real. They got taken,” Pacheco told the Gazette. “It was a boo-boo on the manager’s part to start the order before we had some sort of deposit.”
