Bourdain Fangirl

<a href="">Anthony Bourdain</a> at the Michigan Avenue Borders.

Bridget and I were fortunate enough to get front row seats at the No Reservations book signing last night. Tony canned his set speech immediately and dove into Q&A with the crowd. He was entertaining, blunt, and pretty open about his life. And when he didn’t know where to eat in Paris, he wasn’t shy about calling on one of his staff for recommendations. Love it! I also loved his answer to what was the greatest driver in his life: “Spite.”

For sure, I’m going to eat wherever that man suggests — even at Hot Doug’s! But do me a favor and don’t tell Tony they sell vegetarian hot dogs!
