Another case of luck

Filed under:General — eric @ 1:48 am

Thanks to another coincidental confluence of events I’m known for, it looks like I’ll get to meet Alton Brown at a private undisclosed location in a couple hours. More later…

UPDATE: The location was a small classroom in the Fine Arts building at UGA. Mr. Brown is a graduate of the program, and stopped by to talk about his experiences in the TV world. There were less than two dozen people there, and the event lasted about two hours. He talked less about food and more about the production process and how he got from a film student to where he is today. The talk was great, the opportunity to have him sign my copy of his book was unexpected, and opening the door for a possible huge event for Boánn’s Banks was exhilarating.


  1. I’m so upset over this. I’ll be performing in a puppet show so I am not able to go meet him. Meg will be the representative from our household, since I’m trapped in puppet hell, and Jamie is in Fran’s class at 3:30. Meg is supposed to take a camera. We love him, and in our house he is close to sainthood. There was much girly squealing when his upcoming appearence was announced.

  2. yeah, but James Lileks is having Al Roker and the Food network filming at his house.

    Next, I’ll have Julia Child come visit me.

  3. I want to like Alton Brown…really I do…and yet I just don’t. I don’t know what it is…but he just doesn’t do it for me. I do quite like Jamie Oliver, though. None of this matters now, though, since I no longer have cable TV and probably never will again.

  4. Oooo…networking. That’s be cool if he could lend a hand with the farm promotion…
