This isn't the Anthony Bourdain's first holiday special (see the one from back in 2007), but airing next Monday December 6 is an all-new No Reservations Holiday Special. This time around Bourdain pulls in people like Mario Batali, David Chang, Pat LaFrieda, Ted Nugent, Duff Goldman (who makes a turkey cake), Michael Ruhlman, Marky Ramone, and an improbable sock puppet called Mr. Socks. Is this Bourdain's new travel sidekick? Or is it just a one-off Christmas puppet type of situation?
Here's a video preview, sadly, sans puppet:
