JUST KIDDING: KISS Burger An April Fools’ Joke

April Fools’! They got us. A blog posted by local restauranteur George Formaro Monday outlined an exciting new project, KISS Burger, to be built in Des Moines.

The burger joint was to have been opened in partnership with KISS frontman Gene Simmons. But it was all an elaborate joke.

The post offered a sneak peek into the menu and a Photoshopped picture of Formaro with Simmons.

A spokesperson for Formaro admitted Tuesday the restaurant isn’t real and it’s just an April Fools’ joke.
