"Boise"

We left Portland headed for Boise which was really tough do to all the highways being closed due to ice. So we waited and waited and eventually we started driving it was a slow journey but well worth it the FANS in Boise rocked the foundation of this venue. They were loud and proud and that made for an out of bounds show.

Thanks Boise

"ROAD TOUR OPENER"


Where to start, well that would be Lowell Massachusetts just outside of Boston. With nerves on edge taking the crazy, loud, Guy cooking demo to a new level never seen before. Wow and is that exactly what happened, It was loudier, crazier and completely out of bounds and off da hook mayhem at the same time. Guy leading the way with me on the right, Dirty on the left DJ cobra in the back and Stretch (from Grinders in KC) it was an hour and 25 min of complete rock and roll cooking that the crowd loved and screamed for more.

Thanks Lowell for hosting the 1st night of the 30 day 22 city rock and roll road show.

Come back and see how Philly went.

BUSY,BUSY,BUSY,BUSY

First of all I would like to apologize for the lack of Blogs, due to I went on a little Vacation before the Guy Fieri Road Tour starts.

So now time for a little update on where and what Guy is doing. With the last Triple D shoot of the year ending in the Charlotte area it was off to NYC, where the term 25/8 has now been put into affect. Guy commented that this was by far the hardest and busiest week of his life. 6 days included the Release of his 2nd Book titled More Diners Drive Ins and Dives, The Today Show, Letterman, The View, Extra, 4 Book signings 45 radio and newspaper interviews, and that is just what I know about. I do also know that I am very jealous because he got to attend the final game of the World Series.

Home this past Sunday morning for another week of radio and newspaper interviews, at least they are from the comfort of his home. Stoked to be home for a few days with Lori and the Boys and then Thursday night it is off to Cleveland for the Cleveland Fabulous Food Show. And after that we are going to rock the US with the Guy Fieri Road Show, 21 cities in 30 days. We start on November 17th in Lowell, MA (near Boston) and end December 19th in Vegas. 21 cities in 30 days.

Check www.guyfieri.com to see if he is coming to a town near you!!!!

Come back and check out what is happening on the Tour, there will be daily Blogs from every venue.

Salute to our Military Men & Women


Just back from a wonderful trip in "da islands"...Hawaii...land of never ending surf...jaw dropping sunsets...crazy good food...and more convenience stores per square foot than I have ever seen. And it was cool because everybody wore flip-flops just like us...they must have known we were comin'. While we were there, Lieutenent-Colonel-General Christian Vaughn (our Krew member who coordinates our Armed Forces Entertainment effort) made arrangements with the Navy for some teaching time with their culinary experts in the mess hall and then we launched a brand new demo at Bloch Arena for 1400 military troops and their families. What a great time and appreciative crowd! Guy and I were joined on stage by Guy's son Hunter who can rock a demo and apparently the young ladies like him too! And the entire day couldn't have happened without the help of Bart Bauer, and Lara Katine who were wonderful.

We cannot thank the men and women who serve our country from around the world enough...and the families who hold down the fort at home deserve a big Whahooo thank you!!!!

Guid, Christian and I did some surfing...caught some monster waves...2 foot surf is monster right? The locals nickanmed me Babaloo, which I think is Hawaiian for "wicked good surfer."

"Ya bra, you Babaloo...howzit yo shorts hang so low?"

"Cuz you scare all the whackadoo fish away...maybe better you go in.", I heard that a lot.

Then later we went backstage at the Aerosmith concert, where we met the famous Ken Onion who produces some sick knives for folks like Alton Brown. The crew around the band were awesome and when Joe Perry's wife swung by to say hi, we all just melted! Big tough Brian Gates who protects Steven Tyler took care of Hunter with guitar picks, drum sticks, and a set list that will be coveted keepsakes for years! Oh, and to Tony Fedewa and his crew back stage....you guys da bomb!

N.Y.C. is STILL talkin' !!!



The opening party a Chelsea After Dark to kick of the N.Y.C. Food & Wine Festival was a showcase for Guy and it apparently rocked even the most veteran N.Y. party goers. I am still getting emails about it! The band was off the hook throughout the night, backed by a sick light box featuring a picture of Guid shot at our famous Shoreline Show...(Ok, so we brought flames on stage and threw food...enough already!).





As guests came in to the "Knucklesandwich Party Palace" inside Chelsea Market, they were greeted by a giant neon sign that signaled...leave your inhibitions at the door! As soon as Guy showed up he was mobbed by fans. Thankfully we had some top notch security (Thanks Mike!!!) fully outfitted with the stern looks, earpieces for top secret communication, and military haircuts.




For a Guy who grew up in small towns in NorCal....Guy just had to look at the Palace and the throng of fans, and the media cameras shooting everything he did and say, "Wow...how did THIS happen...I am the luckiest guy in the world."




We signed autographs and partied till we closed the joint. I think everyone had a good time...I did!! Special thanks to the Brookettes from the Brooks Group who not only coordinated all the media...but helped with pictures, crowd control, and autographs. "Chachi Rocks!".


Oh, by the way....if you attended...or even heard about our party in New York....wait until you see what we have planned for the South Beach Food & Wine Festival! We are doing a party that will make N.Y.C. look like Kinder-Gym...Get your tickets now!

Ok, let's talk tiki torches, half naked drummers, limbo, rum drinks, LIVE latin music, the beach, bikinis,...oh, and our own yacht moored off-shore for special VIP get-ta-know-ya's....it is ON baby!

Signatures for one and all


With Guy not really being a "standout in the crowd type of person" with the blond hair; and the shades; and the rings; and the earrings; and the shorts; and the skater shoes; and the contagious laugh; he just blends right in... Ya right! People see him from a mile away laughing and having a great time all the time...walking down the streets... stopping and talking to anyone that will approach him! And his book signings? Well they are the same way-- crazy and fun. As you can see he left his mark!...permanently!


We would like to thank Harper Collins and Food Network for a great book signing in N.Y.C! Norina Li you rock!!! It ran very smoothly and everybody got an autograph and a picture. Pictures can be located at guyfieri.com.

Guy's new book will be out on November 3rd. Go to www.guyfieri.com and you can get one already signed!

NYC Dinners



With Guy, Myself and Brunch off to dinner with Mario Batali... the Krew heads out on a dinner adventure of their own on the streets of N.Y.C. Chef Robert Irvine (and host of Dinner Impossible...shown in 41 countries!!!), his manager Randall, Guy's Manager Tom, the Princess of Pork Traci, and our NYC friend and Chef Carl went to Flex Mussels Restaurant. I understand they tried to "blend in"...not sure how well that worked out. From what they tell me dinner was great and the laughs were better.

Dinner with Mario was just as you would expect... Great food, Great wine, Great laughs and more cooking knowledge than I could EVER take in. We went to a restaurant in Greenwich Village called 10 Downings. Mario and Guy kept the table in stitches all night with Chef Michael Schlow adding in his unique brand of comedy too. My stomach was killing me from all of the laughs.

Thanks again for dinner Mario.

Pork at the NYCWFF


So after 7 months of amazing Pork recipes in a nation wide contest to find The Next Pork Personality... it was time to pick that person at the New York City Wine And Food Festival. What a great place to pick a winner! With the competition down to 3 competitors...Dana Johnson from Rippon, CA, Robert Burmeister from Staten Island,NY, and Kristina Vanni from North Hollywood, CA. the tension was evident in all their faces. These three contestants got to make creations, discuss the stories behind them, while trying to impress the judges and National Pork Board spokesman Guy Fieri with their personality and food. Guy hosted this event as the final stop on the Pork tour to crown the new Pork Personality.

Guy's team and the Pork Board would like to thank everyone involved in this awesome adventure and offer congratulations to Dana Johnson for a 3rd place for her Hog Log and to Robert Burmeister for a runner up spot with his German Cuban Reuben Pork Burger...which by the way you can get at his restaurant "Chow Gourmet" in West Brighton, NY.



A "BIG CONGRATULATIONS" goes out to Kristina Vanni on her Spicy Asian Pork Tenderloin, making her the new pork personality and 5 grand richer. Congratulations!

NBC Celebrity Golf Tournament

What a weekend!
NBC Television, American Century Investments, and Edgewood Resorts invited Guy and the Krew to their celebrity (Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Ray Romano, Chuck Liddell) Golf Tournament in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
Because most of us only golf when windmills are involved we decided to stick with what we know…food, fun, and phat tunes.
The people at Edgewood were crazy kewl and let us roll in with Guy’s jacked up nitrous powered golf cart and Dirty P’s limo golf cart…AC/DC blasting.

When we got to our Kulinary Kompound near the 17th hole we fired up the wok and started serving “Pork En Feugo” sandwiches…yep the same ones Guy debuted on the Leno Show.



Then Guy got the bright idea to take our t-shirt cannon and fire t-shirts across the fairway to the crowd who had docked their boats along the shore of Lake Tahoe.






Everybody loved it until somebody in the Krew forgot to tell Guid that Charles Barkley was near-by, and just addressing his errant drive when….ka-bloom!....










Guy fired a t-shirt to a frenzied crowd….
Mr. Barkley…
Sir…
Sir Charles…
we are SOOOO sorry.
Blame Guy’s manager who is supposed to know everything. It all turned out as we met Charles in the club house after the tournament and he turned out to be the coolest guy. Chuck and Guy made a promise to cook together soon. A big thanks to everyone at NBC, Jimmie Roberts, Dan Hicks and Roger Maltby; Phil Weidinger, everyone at Edgewood who treated us like kings, American Century Investments, Brown-Foreman (wow these kats know how to throw a party), and Sonoma County’s king of bubbles, Gary Heck of Korbel Wine. If we get time to come back next year…Guy said we are going to blow-that-place-up! Stay tuned

Food & Wine Shows

Just got a kool video from a fan who captured Guid's Off the Hook demo at the South Beach Food & wine show in February. It was great to hang out with Bobby, Rachel and Emeril. We had hoped buddy, Sammy Hagar might join us but he was rehearsing with his new band Chickenfoot in Hawaii. We did our best to make sure there was some "Sammy" in the house. Take a look at the video. Our buddy Dave at Super Slusher turned us on to the wildest margarita blender in the country! I think you'll agree, we had a good time.

We are going to take to the next level on June 13th at Great American Food & Music Festival at Shoreline Ampitheater. It will be craaazzzy.

Derby Time

Let me just start off with " WOW" What an awesome event from the people in the Hats and Suits to the crazy fans to the great celebrities we got to meet and hang out with.

Friday morning started off with a couple of cooking demos by Guy during brunch and some photo oppotunities. After that we had a bit of down time and headed off to the Barnstable event across town which was a red carpet event. There were a ton of celebrities that were present and 10 thousand people standing by looking for there favorite celeb to come driving up.

The next day was Derby Day and like I said WOW what an amazing venue and a great time from the food to the people. From what I could tell a great time was had by all win or lose.

After the Derby we made a phone call and took over a restuarant in Old Town Louisville called Amica, the owner let us come in and take over he kitchen for what was supposed to be 30 people but it was more like 60.

Guy and I jumped right into our 6 courses we were going to feed our guests, while Amica was still turning food for there patrons that did not even know we were coming. So once the dinning room was empty Guy and I were hittin it hard in the Kitchen we had some guest that wanted to help us cook Matt Cassell ( quarteback for the KC Chiefs) Joey Fatone,Taylor Dayne and let me tell yah Joey can cook, but Matt he should stick to throwing touchdowns. With the night coming to and end of great food and stories it was time to go to bed 5am to the airport was coming fast.

So we are off to Los angeles for a lunch at Baby Blues an AWESOME BBQ joint in Hollywood. The food was OFF DA HOOK and all left Happy, and full.

The nights event was the finale of Fantasy Rock Camp. What a killer event that was, great music and some cool folks.

March Madness

With the little bit of Vaca in Febuary, March started off on Day one headed to Boise, ID for a week of Triple DDD. Back in time for the weekend. It was family and friends at the house telling stories and having some laughs. (alot of laughs).

Week two of March had phone interview after phone interview. Guy the went to Johnny Garlics (his restuarant in Sacramento) for a day of in house demos, meet and greets and a bunch of autographs. With the week coming to a close it was time for Family Circle to come to the house and do a shoot with the family. The shoot is over and Guy, me of course, and Brunch head off to San Diego for a shoot with the National Pork Board.

With the shoot over it is time for dinner and we want to cook, and cook we did. WOW. We went over to Guys buddy Phil Roxworth's place (Fixtures kitchen and bath in San Diego) where he had put together one amazing outdoor kitchen that we were the first ones to cook on. We cooked for some of his VIP's and all of his staff. What a spread and great time that was. With the night over we jumped on a plane and headed to a cold rainy Portland, OR for some more awesome locations of Triple DDD. We attended some great events in Portland for St Patricks Day. Boy do the people of Portland know how to celebrate the Holiday.

What was next in March JAY LENO. With cold portland in the past and sunny Los Angeles in our sight it was a Friday night Jay Leno visit. WOW big stuff here. Jay and Guy cooked some crazy stuff and the flames were OFF DA HOOK.

The Month ended with the shooting of Guys Big Bite in New York City, which has already started airing. Tune in on Sundays at 11am/10c to see Guy in all new episode.

Get back soon April was AWESOME.

Febuary is a little relaxing

After the Superbowl Guy came home to a crazy shoot schedule at the house with Family and Friends. People Magazine did a 2 page layout on Guy and his Family then it was Autoweek shooting the garage and all the Hotrods. When all the home shoots were done Guy took his Wife and Kids on a 10 day vacation to a warm sunny place.

Then back to reality at home for awhile spending lots of hours at the restuarants (which does not happen much with the intense on the road schedule).

It is now mid month and we are all off to Sunny Miami Beach, FL for the South Beach food and Wine Festival. Krew in attendance was everybody. Kleetus, Dirty P, Jimmy Mac, Dustin. What an event this was from Paula's after Hours Casino Party, to the Bubble Q to Rachael Ray's Burger bash it was fun in the sun and parties after dark.

Guy did Kidz kitchen (brought to you by Kelloggs) again this year with the largest turn out yet it was a packed house of SCREAMIN kids and there parents. Followed buy Guy,Kleetus and Dirty P getting in a Dunk Tank full of Milk and Fruit Loops for the kids to take their turn at trying to get us all wet.

With the food and wine festival over it is Triple D time in South Florida Ft. Lauderdale to be exact. 7 locations in 4 days what a great time, Great food in Sunny Florida. Does it get any better?

This takes Guy and the Krew through a somewhat relaxing, crazy, exciting Febuarary. Keep checkin back and see what went on in March it was "OFF DA HOOK"
