irisarborBuddy, where were you when the filming was going on at Burts?
I saw so many other familiar faces "packing the house"
I thought I'd see you too?
I was in Cincinnati doing Roadhouse Bar-B-Que Sauce demos at Jungle Jim's Market. I managed to sell out by 5:30pm EDST (4:30pm CDST). I quickly loaded up my gear, jumped in my car and drove at high speed on a northwest diagonal route through the state of Indiana. I did not stop for food, gas, or a bathroom break, having filled up on the first two and relieving myself of the latter before leaving Cincy. Even with major road construction around the junction of I-65 and I-80/90, I managed to arrive at Burt's at 9:30pm CDST.
The crew had already finished taping, but everyone was in a relaxed mode and I had the opportunity to meet Anthony Bourdain (a very tall man). In addition, as I helped clean up from the mass of people who crowded into Burt's that night, I was fortunate enough to latch onto Mr. Bourdain's leftover pizza which he did not want to drag along with him. I considered selling the individual pieces on ebay, but thought better of it; sharing the remaining half of the X-Large pizza with my wife and children.
It was a total madhouse at Burt's that night and I'm not sure that I'm sorry I missed it.
