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 Hippodrome at France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. For $33, you get one GPass for upper-balcony seating in side rows D–H or center rows M–W on Saturday, November 17, at 8 p.m. (up to a $54.60 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. Bourdain’s acid tongue provides a balance to the Hippodrome’s tart colors and sweet veneer, and chandeliers, murals, and sweeping guided arches lure eyes with their recently restored luster.
