Did Adam Sandler (and Donny's Boy) dine and dash?

Adam Sandler denies restaurant`s claims he didn`t pay for meal

Movie star Adam Sandler has denied a restaurant's claims that he didn't pay for a meal there.

The actor is currently filming a new movie in Peabody, Massachusetts, and it's claimed in July his company Happy Madison Productions asked the restaurant, A Taste of Italy, to lay on a meal for the cast and crew.

According to TMZ, the owner did the meal and was paid for it but shortly after he alleged Happy Madison Productions asked him to buy in food for two BBQ's but they never came for it and he was left with $2,500 worth of food.

He insists Sandler's company refused to pay up so he put up a sign in his restaurant's window saying: 'ADAM SANDLER ATE HERE AND NEVER PAID.'

But a rep for Happy Madison Productions said they never asked for the catering for the BBQ's and that Sandler never ate at the restaurant.


The owner of A Taste of Italy in Massachusetts claims Sandler's company, Happy Madison Productions, made a deal with him to cater for two big BBQs following a meal at the restaurant.

But the big meals never happened and he was left $2,500 (£1,500) out of pocket, prompting him to slap a poster on his shop window, stating, 'Adam Sandler ate here and never paid'.

However, representatives for The Wedding Singer star, who is currently filming nearby, tell TMZ.com that no promises were made to the restaurant owner. They also insist that Sandler never ate at A Taste of Italy.



So, it seems that the owner's sign wasn't true... Sandler never ate there when filming Donny's Boy. It does seem the the production crew hired them to cater once. It also seems like they might have mentioned the BBQs, because it says, "no promises were made", which sounds like discussions were made.

So either the restaurant owner misunderstood, got ahead of himself (tried to push them into it), or Happy Madison did actually make the promise and then back out.

Who knows?

Either way, it seems that Sandler and the actors (including Andy Samberg) weren't involved.
