Lara Spencer Experiences an Entire City in One Weekend in Travel Channel Special EAT, DRINK, HAGGLE
Known for her love of bargain hunting at flea markets, Lara Spencer is hitting the road for the ultimate weekend getaway on her new Travel Channel special, "Eat, Drink, Haggle," premiering Saturday, April 21 at 2 p.m. ET/PT. The special follows Spencer as she seeks out a city's best-kept secrets for mouth-watering foods, decadent cocktails and wallet-friendly flea market deals.
"The way I see it, the perfect weekend getaway combines three things: seeing new places, eating delicious local food and combing the local flea market for unique, one-of-a-kind finds," said Spencer. "Shopping for bargains can work up quite an appetite - so I've got a local wingman at my side to show me the hidden gems of this city that you need to see for yourself."
In the half-hour special, Spencer travels to Cleveland, where the "unofficial mayor" and lifelong Clevelander Alan Glazen shows her what makes this Midwestern gem of a town so special. Spencer and Glazen indulge in local delicacies like giant pastrami sandwiches, visit a hidden tiki bar with cocktails that pack a serious punch, and even learns the ancient art of glass-blowing. The special concludes with a bargain hunt competition in Cleveland's massive downtown flea market.
Lara Spencer is a contributor to ABC News' morning program Good Morning America, a New York Times bestselling author, and creator, executive producer and host of the Emmy(R) Award- winning competition series FLEA MARKET FLIP on HGTV and Great American Country.
