I just realized that I did not blog on my adventure to Ann Arbor 2 weeks ago to see Alton Brown at a book signing.....
On June 21, we went to the Borders in Ann Arbor to meet Alton Brown, author of "I'm just here for the food" and host of "Good Eats" on the Food Network.
Alton was AWESOME!!!! very friendly, and very cordial. He had about a 30 minute Q & A and was very funny, and very appreciative of all of his fans. I would have to guess about 500 showed up for the event, and people were packed in everywhere. Alton said that he would stay there until he got to meet everyone there that wanted to meet him. We were in line for about an hour and 15 minutes or so. He took the time to sign whatever anyone brought to sign (with a few exceptions, he stated he wouldn't sign any rodents, because at a previous book signing, someone asked him to sign a gerbil, and it bit him) and took pictures and talked to everyone in line.
Speaking of Good Eats, we had Maize 'n Blue Deli for dinner..... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
