Bobby Flay in Primetime

Bobby Flay is going to be hosting a new reality series on NBC called (working title) America’s Next Great Restaurant.   Contestants on the show are going to be working to get their  restaurant opened under mentor and investor, Bobby Flay.  The grand prize winner will get the opportunity to open a new restaurant chain in three cities across America.

The series is actually going to having open casting calls this week:

Open casting calls for the series are set to take place March 19 – April 5 in New York City, New York (March 19, 20), Raleigh, North Carolina (March 22), Nashville, Tennessee (March 24), Columbus, Ohio (March 26), Chicago, Illinois (March 28), Kansas City, Kansas (March 30), Denver, Colorado (April 1) and Los Angeles, California (April 5).

Interested applicants for the series should log onto to pre-register for an open casting call at one of the eight stops on the nationwide casting bus tour. Along with a filled out and signed application and a photo-ID, casting teams want applicants to bring anything they feel would help pitch their restaurant concept. Elements could be visual, edible or even wearable and applicants will have a limited time to pitch their idea.

Visitors also can follow the bus tour on Twitter @magicalelves with photos and video, and also at


Food Network Fridays

I am an obsessed Food Network fan, but this week was kind of slow since pretty much all of FN was partying it up at the SOBE South Beach Wine & Food Festival.  So instead of talking about the shows I will give a fun weekend activity instead…  The Official (ish) Food Network Drinking Game!

This includes games for individual FN stars (Ina, Paula, Rachael, Guy, etc.) as well as for the channel as a whole.  Enjoy… and drink responsibly.

And We’re Back!
