Papa John's is getting "Shaq-ified." The pizza chain said Friday that basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal will be its new pitchman, appearing in TV commercials and promoting Papa John's in other ways. Papa John's International Inc. said it will pay O'Neal more than $8 million in cash and company stock for the three-year endorsement deal.

Bonus Story

BDI has opened.

TIL he owns a bunch of fast food franchises. 

 

https://www.delish.com/food-news/a26908840/shaq-papa-johns-investment-board/

The NBA Hall of Famer announced this morning he is joining Papa John's Board of Directors and investing in nine Atlanta-area Papa John's franchises.

...

This isn't the first time Shaq is working with a fast food brand—he's been involved in the restaurant business since he was a player. He currently owns a Krispy Kreme franchise in Atlanta, a fast-casual restaurant chain called Big Chicken (he's also the founder), and a fine-dining restaurant in Los Angeles. Previously, he owned 27 Five Guys franchises.

so it appears that Fionn Macool's on Regent has closed down, I have no clue why.

Personally I didn't really care for the food,  I guess I'm not a pub person

Similar to Moxies it does not fit the clientele in that area of town.      I also found the menu as a whole to be very mediocre,   better options down the road at Tavern.

The absolute best thing to take over for that spot? A yield!

Geez, if the Tavern is considered to be a better option, it must have been really bad.

Tavern isn't bad IMO ,  I prefer the food at the King's Head but overall Tavern is decent bar food.

It's across the street from work, so I end up there from time to time. Chicken fingers are the best bet, but I can't stand their fries. So mushy and dry on the inside. ☹️

oh I can already hear Skip trying scurrying to get a delivery sticker on that place, and the menu shows more than just chinese food, they also serve Sushi and Bibimbap. Oh but isn't Ye's restaurant still around (I actually went once, it's basically in the same vein as Foody Goody)

Ye's still exists... it's a fancier Buffet Square...  so mediocre food and a tonne of asian people having birthday parties there...

Came across a very old TV advert for "Gondola Pizza".   A special place in the hearts of Manitobans or just another pizza joint ?

oh I remember the radio spots very well
