Alton Brown Crowdsources Recommendations for Top Columbus Eateries During Palace Theatre Stop
Television personality, author, and Food Network star Alton Brown launched his #ABRoadEats initiative to discover culinary treasures and connect with his millions of followers while "Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science" tours the country. Brown is calling on his followers for gustatory guidance in each of the 28 cities he will visit this fall (www.altonbrownlive.com). Columbus fans can submit recommendations for coffee and breakfast to late-night munchies and everything in between on his web site, Facebook, and Twitter using #ABRoadEatsColumbus.
CAPA presents Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Friday, October 20, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $30-$128 (VIP) at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
"Everyone loves telling out-of-towners where to eat. Typically, we choose one coffee joint, one breakfast (or doughnut) stop, and a lunch stop," says Brown. "Then after the show, we'll hit a late-night place." Dinners are usually reserved for cities where the tour has a day off.
Brown tabulates the votes each day and makes his picks from the submissions. "I do not eat a single bite of food that doesn't come from the hashtag." After his visit, Brown posts photos or videos and write-ups on his social media platforms.
Brown created a new form of entertainment-the live culinary variety show-with his Edible Inevitable Tour that played in more than 100 cities to more than 150,000 fans. The Eat Your Science tour has sold more than 200,000 tickets in more than 80 cities.
Critics and fans alike have raved about the interactive components oF Brown's shows. He promises "plenty of new therapy-inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments." "I don't want to give too much away," staTEd Brown, "but this time we're going to play a little game while we're at it. Plus, you'll see things I've never been allowed to do on TV."
Brown, author of the James Beard award-winning I'm Just Here for the Food and The New York Times bestselling sequence Good Eats, released a collection of more than 100 personal recipes peppered with a pinch of science and history in Alton Brown: EveryDayCook (2016).
