“I remember one day I was sitting here with a guy, Eric Lindell, and he said, ‘Hey, I got Guy Fieri’s number,’ so we called him,” Moondog recalled. “He said, ‘You’ll never guess where I am, I’m eating pierogis at the Starlite Lounge.’ Guy said, ‘Man, that Moondog, he’s a trip!’
“I feel for everybody in this business and what a blessing to get a phone call from the Food Network, ‘Hey, they’re coming back’ and I’m like really? They said Guy insisted on it.”
Moondog said that Fieri didn’t travel for the filming that happened back in August.MORE NEWS: Lawsuit: Company Owned By West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Owes $166,000
