Backstage Meet and Greet with Alton Brown

I have always liked Alton Brown ever since his early days with "Good Eats". So when the chance came to see his live show in Baltimore, MD at the Lyric Opera House I quickly purchased tickets. I was happy to discover a nice bonus to purchasing tickets up front for "Alton Brown Live: The Edible Inevitable Tour" was a backstage Meet and Greet with Alton himself.

Alton took the time to talk to everyone. He signed pretty much anything you wanted him to sign. His staff helped out with holding jackets and bags and also took photos for everyone. How awesome was that!

We soon settled into our third row center seats and waited for the show. With the pre-show entertainment of belching and farting yeast sock puppets we knew we were going to have a hard time not enjoying ourselves (I don't care what you say, farts are funny). It was nearly three hours of laugh after laugh. Alton is fantastic! His interactions with the audience are priceless. I seriously can't remember ever laughing harder at any show I have ever attended. Throw in a bit of science and some musical numbers and you have an absolutely entertaining show.

Alton Brown Live!

If you ever get the chance to see Alton Brown live you really should. You won't regret it.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
