The Baltimore and Detroit segments seemed to capture a lot more of what his show is about.
Overall…I liked it…the draw for me to Bourdain is his ability to really give you a feeling as to where he is and what he is experiencing…you can almost smell and taste the food and share the experience…great boob tube.
As just a matter of coincidence, I took my brother and sister in law on a whirlwind tour around the B-lo yesterday…it included a stop at Ulrich’s…potato pancakes and a braut for me…yum. I have been going to Ulrich’s since the summer of 1986 when I worked a summer at Trico…if you have never been, you should go. One of the pics above shows a sign from Ulrich’s featuring a countdown to Bourdain’s show last night…pretty cool.
The rest of the pics above are a just a sampling of some of the places I visited today.
I love this CRAZY town of ours.
I also loved this catch phrase he came up with for the B-lo earlier in the year…
From the pages of Buffalo Rising came this link about Anthony Bourdain’s thoughts on the B-lo…
I think we may have found a new catch phrase for our beloved city courtesy of Mr. Bourdain.
Buffalo, “A weirdly wonderful place.”
Works for me and is so very true.
