The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading the arrest of the person(s) responsible for this explosion.
The unknown suspect had a dark, full, thick beard with a mustache, and wore all-black clothing to include a black "beanie"-style hat with flaps. He walks with an unusual gait - it appears his feet turn inward when he walks.
The FBI and the Pasadena, California, Police Department are asking for the public's assistance in identifying a man who is believed to be responsible for an explosion that occurred at The Cheesecake Factory on February 2, 2017.
At approximately 6:08 p.m. on February 2, 2017, Pasadena Police responded to a call of an explosion at a busy The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Pasadena, California. After evacuating the restaurant, officers located a homemade pyrotechnic device that had been detonated. No customers or employees were injured during the incident.

Thoughts? It seems the debate here is somewhat whether this was a prank or the suspect's intentions were more sinister. I do admit "Cheesecake Factory Explosion" is one of the weirdest thread titles we've ever had on this site but I didn't know what else to call it. (Cheesecake Factory Bomber may also come across unintentionally comedic.) In any case, while no one was killed, it doesn't change the fact innocent victims could have been hurt no matter what this guy's intentions were. They have a pretty good photo and video on that FBI link so I feel like all they need to do is up the publicity and there is a great chance this guy can be identified soon.
