Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Television personality Alton Brown is going on tour, and he's bringing ponchos. In the promotional video he created, he says the live show will feature cooking, live music and "bizarre and potentially messy experiments." Maybe that's why the ponchos are needed? Brown has not yet announced the name for the tour; he is deciding between "The Inevitable Edible Tour" or "The Edible Inevitable Tour".

According the official website, Brown will be heading to cities across the United States, including San Diego, CA, Mesa, AZ, Detroit, MI, and Tampa, FL. He'll also be heading to New England in the second leg of the tour. Since Brown tweeted a link to the site at 10:54 am EST today, the site has been crashing due to the number of visitors. "We're gonna need a bigger server" he tweets. Indeed. Check out the schedule and the teaser below:


10/18 Palm Desert, CA
