Guy Fieri Just Marked His Territory at Il Cane Rosso

Maple and Motor, you're not alone.

This morning Il Cane Rosso posted this on their Facebook page:

Cane Rosso is CLOSED at lunch today for a private Holiday Party. We will re-open for dinner at 5pm! Come down and try some of Deep Ellum Brewing Company's beers AND a Lockhart Burnt Ends Pizza - while they both last.

Bullshit, of course. Too many places have been obscurely closing this week for a few hours. And how could DDD hit Dough, Pecan Lodge (they go there Sunday) and Maple and Motor, and not hit winner-of-all-things Il Cane Rosso?

So there it is, Guy Fieri's tag. He's like the Banksy of insufferable food personalities. If you prefer the real thing, here's a photo of Fieri in the flesh with owner Jay Jerrier:
