Alton Brown Fans!
In twenty-five words (or more)|
I saw AB four times a few weeks ago at the food festival in NYCHe is who I think he is.
An amazingly gracious, patient and beautiful man, inside and out.
He did something for me at 11:35 this past Thursday night that made me respect him forever.
I will give details to anyone who e mail.
On Saturday, I was able to give him something, and tell him something that rendered him speechless.
Did I have a good time?
You tell me. :)
Oh tell me what he did for you and vice versa!
That Thursday night was the "Chelsea Market After Dark Party" that he 'hosted' and I use that term loosely. The place was a madhouse, and for most of the night, he was surrounded by a ring of people six deep. I'm a crowd claustrophobic, and I managed to get through the line once, but then a sick friend of mine I was on the phone with asked me if I'd talk to him again.
So, around 11:30, I endured the madhouse again, sure when I got up there, he'd send me away. Not only did he sign the item for me, but take another picture with me, checking all the while to see if I were alright. (I was shaking like a leaf at that point).
On Saturday, I was able to talk to him again, and give him a Thank You Card and a small gift he really appreciated.
He is a truly genuine person.
that's so fantastic. :D i always knew he was *really* a great guy. i'm so jealous! i'd love to meet him.
