Another Friday and another non-revenue generating blog post about this coming week’s No Reservations show on the Travel Channel: at least non-revenue generating for yours truly.
Anthony Bourdain…yeah, my guess is he’s getting a lil’ sumpin’-sumpin’ for his time.
This week, Tony visits New York’s Burroughs.
Since—believe it or not—I have never been to the New York, New York (so, what in the hell is it, a city or a state?) I have no idea what a borough or burough or burrough even is (just what I love, the same word with three different spellings).
While I have traveled the world from Latin American to Asia, from Alaska to Indonesia, and from Canada to all over Europe, being from the far west, the only burrows I know are the ones dug by those darn prairie dogs (or the gophers in my wife’s garden).
But I am sure many of you know exactly what a burough is and can name all five boroughs within New York.
As usual, the YouTube trailer for the show is below, but they really under-did themselves on this one. Hopefully the show itself, on Monday evening, will be less “airy.”
It was ironic that I got my weekly notification of the upcoming episode while I was sitting in a New York pizzeria. At the time, I was thoroughly enjoying my pizza pie at Giovanni’s with a glass of a good vintage red jug wine (I’m thinking about 3:00 p.m. last Wednesday).
I wish I could say this New York pizzeria was actually in New York, but alas, not so.
(So Tony. Eh. How abouts you sending me a T-shirt or a cookbook or sumpin’ for all these plugs for your show?!?)
