A Jackson pizzeria is going to make its third appearance on the popular Food Network series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Friday.

Pinky G’s will appear on the “takeout edition” of the show when it airs Friday at 7 p.m. on Food Network. Check your local listings to make sure of the time.

“The Fieri family loves both cooking at home and great restaurant food, so they’re combining the best of both worlds with some Triple D-style takeout — cooking up recipes sent by DDD alums who join Guy and Hunter via video chat,” the episode description said. “On this menu, there’s New Zealand red deer comin’ from Texas, a stromboli from Jackson, Wyoming, seafood stew from a classic Georgia diner and sinful cinnamon rolls out of Colorado.”

Pinky G’s has also appeared in “funky pizza” and “celebrity pizza” themed episodes. The restaurant has locations in Jackson and Big Sky, Montana, and are open daily, in addition to a food truck.

In the “celebrity” pizza episode, host Guy Fieri tried the restaurant’s “Abe Froman” pizza, named after the “Sausage King of Chicago” from the classic film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” The pizza has shredded mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella, spicy sausage and fresh chopped basil.

In the funky episode, Fieri tasted the restaurant’s “funky chicken” pizza, which has shredded mozzarella, oven-roasted chicken, artichoke hearts, red onions and ricotta cheese on house-made fresh basil pesto.

Pinky G’s strombolis, which will be featured tonight, have mushrooms, onions, peppers and mozzarella cheese stuffed inside and are brushed with garlic oil.

The pizza can be ordered locally and shipped nationally.

Fat Grizzly Bear Gets Into Another Altercation While Guarding His Bull Elk

We’ve all been there. It’s late on Friday. You have a few thousand beers. You order a large Meat-Lover’s special and hork down a couple of slices David Hasselhoff-style before you pass out upside down caught in the steps of a spiral staircase.

It’s a story as old as time.

You wake up the next day craving more of your pizza only to find it gone.

You learn from that experience to guard your food.

That’s what the grizzly bear in Yellowstone is doing after he downed that bull elk in the river.

A couple days he had to fend-off another grizzly in an epic — although short — battle.

Today, he’s having to deal with a wolf who think he can just waltz-in and grab a snack.

Credit the bear. He gives the wolf some crumbs. He lets the wolf know that he’s watching but won’t react if the wolf doesn’t get too greedy.

Of course the wolf takes that as the bear is more generous than he is and crosses the line.

And at about the 2:15 mark on the video, Fatty the Bear gets up and lets the wolf know the buffet is over.

Fatty is a smooth operator. He didn’t growl. He didn’t pounce. All he did was move and the wolf got the message.

Way to go, Fatty.

Hopefully for the wolf, there’s an unguarded buffet downstream.
