New, 1 comment

TURN & BURN — Tony Bourdain and Eric Ripert are taking their show on the road. The culinary duo will be appearing at Baltimore's Hippodrome on May 22 for a live chef-talk spectacular. For $29 attendees can enjoy a conversation with the two star chefs live on-stage. Pricier packages are available for a "foodie tasting" from the area's best chefs, and for an even greater sum, guests can actually hang out with the Tony and Eric, backstage. [Baltimore Sun]
