Tickets just went on sale today! Scroll down for more information.

Here is the press release I received about this event, is sounds pretty awesome for Baltimore Foodies!

The host of NO RESERVATIONS, Anthony Bourdain, is coming to the Hippodrome Theatre Saturday Evening, May 22nd for one night only. Bourdain is the acclaimed television personality, best-selling author, public speaker, world traveler, gourmand, and punk-rock aficionado. Bourdain will be joined by his special guest and friend, Eric Ripert, chef, author, and host of PBS’ Avec Eric. Ripert is executive chef and co-owner of New York’s celebrated three-star Michelin restaurant Le Bernardin.

Bourdain and Ripert, will provide an evening of storytelling and observation providing the audience with a frank and provocative back and forth about what really goes on behind the kitchen doors- from both ends of the spectrum. Through illustrative anecdotes and stories, the night will include highlights from Ripert’s career and lurid lowlights from Bourdain’s career, and will give the audience a real-world understanding of what it takes to survive in the cutthroat culture of fine dining restaurants. The program portion of the evening will include an audience Question and Answer.

Audience members will be able to include in their ticket the opportunity to be a part of The Hippodrome Foodie Experience immediately following the show.

If you're a viewer of Bourdain's show "No Reservations", you'll know that he utterly trashed Baltimore the one time he filmed his show here. You couldn't pay me to see this schmuck in person!

Anyone else purchase the meet and greet? I got the meet and greet and have very little information about it. I assume it's after the 8PM show and I will get more information at the event, but I have no information as of yet. If anyone knows, please share. Thanks!!

Richard - I just emailed my contact and she wrote this to me: There will be a VIP table as people enter. Anyone with the meet and greet should go to the VIP table for direction.

Hope that helps!
