Recommend Your Favorite Local Eatery to Alton Brown

Thursday, September 7, 2017

What’s a road trip without great food? Television personality, author and Food Network star Alton Brown launched his #ABRoadEats initiative to discover culinary treasures and connect with his millions of followers while Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science tours the country. Today, he is calling on his followers for gustatory guidance in each of the 28 cities he will visit this fall (altonbrownlive.com). Fans in Richmond and Lexington can submit recommendations for coffee and breakfast to late night munchies and every-thing in-between on his website, Facebook and Twitter using #ABRoadEatsRKY.

"Everyone loves telling out-of-towners where to eat. Typically we choose one coffee joint, one breakfast (or doughnut) stop and a lunch stop," says Brown. "Then after the show, we’ll hit a late night place" Dinners are usually reserved for cities where the tour has a day off.

Brown tabulates the votes each day and makes his picks from the submissions. "I do not eat a single bite of food that doesn't come from the hashtag." After his visit, Alton posts photos or videos and write-ups on his social media platforms.

Brown created a new form of entertainment – the live culinary variety show – with his Edible Inevitable Tour, which played in over 100 cities with more than 150,000 fans in attendance. The Eat Your Science tour has sold more than 200,000 tickets in over 80 cities. Tickets are on sale now.
