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 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 other a travel-documentary program on CNN.
Shea's Performing Arts Center
Bing Crosby. The Marx Brothers. Frank Sinatra. These are only a few of the luminaries who have trod the boards at Shea's Performing Arts Center over its nearly 90-year history. Shea’s originally opened as a movie house in 1926, shortly before the advent of talkies. Partnering with Tiffany Studios to create an extravagantly lush interior, Chicago architects C.W. and George L. Rapp modeled the opulent venue after a European opera house and created a Neo-Spanish Baroque masterpiece in the process. Tours of the venue provide an up-close view of its grandeur and many electrical outlets, and they benefit the center’s ongoing restoration initiatives. Shea’s Performing Arts Center also houses the Western New York Entertainment Hall of Fame, whose inductees include stars such as Lucille Ball, Buffalo Bob, and Christine Baranski.
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.
