Oh, I wouldn't be referencing the site by name. It'd go something like, "Computer. State any and all information you have on the game 52 Pick-Up." Though, as you say, to avoid plagarism issues, I'd reword it so it wasn't exactly as it was on the website, but I'd still phrase it so it sounds like it's coming from a computer.

Gee, I wonder what restaurant you're referring to? lol Don't worry; I don't have any plans to go that route. Though it's wonderful to get this information if I ever decided differently. Thank you both for your help!
