The manager of Antonio's pizza in Boston said the restaurant is out $3,900 because of a fake order placed by a moonlighting Bob Dylan roadie.

Dylan was playing in Boston Friday, Nov. 19 and the order, for 178 pizzas, was placed by a man wearing an official backstage clearance pass, according to a story in The Republican newspaper.

Sean McElligott, manager of Antonio's, said the staff at the pizzeria wanted to prepare the order and stayed until 5 a.m. Saturday.

From the story:

McElligott said that halfway through preparing the order, the staff wondered why the man had not returned, but at that point they wanted to complete the order. ...

Normally, we would take a deposit for such a large order, but we went "on faith," McElligott said.

"I guess we were too trusting," he said.

He said the business was able to give half the order away to homeless shelters and other charities in town, and they threw away the rest of the pizza.
