We went and saw Alton Brown tonight in Sewickley as part of his Good Eats 3: The Later Years book tour. He gave a wonderful talk and an incredibly funny Q&A session. Afterwards, he signed everyone’s book and spoke with us briefly. I asked what his favorite restaurant in Marietta, GA is (The Colombian place that burned down, and then Chicken And The Egg) and Abby asked if he would oblige our awkward photo needs.
And he did.
And then he signed our wooden spoon under the condition that it be retired from active duty. Done.
There is no doubt in my mind that should the opportunity arise to see Alton Brown in your town that you take full advantage of it. The ticket prices seemed a bit steep, but were worth every penny.
