Of course it can only mean one thing—Bunny and I had tickets to the Alton Brown Edible
Alton was nice enough to take our

Alton Brown is
extremely funny. After an attempt at rapping (he should not quit his day
job, that's all I have to say about that), he went into “Things He Could
Not Say On Televsion” which include rants against chicken fingers (“when I
am depressed, or sad, or even bored, I just have to remember the sound of
little girls screaming … ”) to trout ice
He makes a gallon of chocolate ice cream in 10 seconds (and it does
not involve liquid nitrogen) and using the worlds largest Easy•Bake Oven
(cranked to 11, it can be seen from outer space) he cooks pizza in four
And I best not forget his country song to Airline Lounge Shimp Cocktail.

All I can say is, if you are a fan of Good Eats or of Alton Brown in
should go. It's easily worth the ticket price.
And yes, he always carries nutmeg in his pocket.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
