Although it’s common for chefs to be treated like rock stars, they still have to foot the bill after trashing hotel rooms with Grey Poupon. Savor the marinated words of a cooking master with this GrouponLive deal to see Guts and Glory: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis. For $30, you get one G-Pass for seating in the upper or lower gallery on Friday, November 2, at 8 p.m. (up to a $54.24 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call. Doors open at 7 p.m.
One of the culinary world’s most famously outspoken gastronomes serves up an insightful night for foodies during Guts and Glory: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain. The lovably abrasive Bourdain, who's as verbose and cutting as a serrated thesaurus, has won over food enthusiasts with his bestselling book Medium Raw and his opined explorations of the culinary landscape chronicled in the Travel Channel’s No Reservations. During an interview last year with New York magazine, Bourdain described his job as traveling "around the world eating and drinking and making self-indulgent television about the experience." In 2013, the author and Emmy Award winner will be starring in two new shows, one a cooking-competition series on ABC and the second a travel-documentary program on CNN.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
Built in 1928, the historic Orpheum Theatre Memphis once housed top-tier vaudeville shows in its opulent interior, which wowed audiences with monumental chandeliers, lush tapestries, and a Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. After the decline of vaudeville, the Orpheum gradually succumbed to age and a hailstorm of acorns tossed by delinquent squirrels, before a $5 million restoration project in 1982 returned the theater back to its former glory days. Now the crown jewel of Memphis' entertainment venues, the Orpheum's revived interior reminds audiences of the beautiful excess of the Roaring Twenties while hosting a nonstop schedule of concerts, Broadway shows, and ballets.
