*JEALOUS* That sounds like great fun! I have to admit that there are a lot of famous chefs/TV personalities on the food network I'd like to meet, but he's one of the top. I love his show! And trout ice cream? YUCK!

Kelly Hashway

Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Sorry about the parking ticket though.

Sara Grambusch

So jealous! I bet he is very charismatic in person.

JULIA -- I fully dropped my plans for the evening when I heard he was a mere three miles away. He went straight into Q&A and was so witty! If you get a chance to see him, do it! The whole crowd groaned over the trout ice cream. Shudder!

KELLY -- Thanks! I was pretty bummed about the stupid ticket. The times changed and it's posted NO WHERE. I even checked online. It's been free after 6 pm for years... now it's 8 pm. Feel like I'm living on the set of the Dukes of Hazard and all those crazy speed traps.

SARA -- That's the perfect word. He was totally comfortable just standing on the stairs, speaking to everyone crowded above and below, never at a loss for words. Thanks for coming by!

I just found a youtube video of Alton Brown's Seattle Q&A. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTzgjZ2eapY

YAY!!! Also, I was incorrect on the reference on the Meat Pies episode... the Jaws comment came earlier. The Meat Pies episode featured reference to the musical, "Sweeney Todd," and cannibalism.


Look at you guys! What fun! I love how you guys always seem to plan these stupendous girl nights. Sigh. It makes me sad I don't have anyone to accompany me, well, anywhere. I guess I shall live vicariously through the two of you and continue to be entertained by your fun accounts of special evenings like this one! Who's wearing the white tennis? Hmmm... let me guess! :)


Ha Ha Ha... Bella called out my fashion misstep (oh lord, a pun). The only thing I can say in my defense is that I didn't mind standing for 45 minutes, unlike the gal in heels...

It was a terrific evening. So glad I let myself be talked into some fun and out of going to the gym.


Looks like you have a fantastic time, and I loved his answers. So fun/bizarre to see celebrities in real life!

My hubby loves Alton. I'm sure he'd be very jealous!
