Seasonal Special Happenings

Guy Fieri at the Palace

When: Sun., May 22 2011

In case you ever doubted that chefs are the rock stars of the 21st century, along comes Guy Fieri — chef, author, restaurateur, and Food Network's spiky haired "culinary rock star " — with his coast-to-coast roadshow. A Columbus native, Fieri will be parking his par-tay at the Palace Theatre tonight at 7:30. On the side, he'll be serving up Australian flair bartender Hayden Wood, L.A.'s DJ Cobra, and a zany, unscripted roundup of recipes, cooking demos, and food talk. Tickets range from $39.50 to the $250 "off da hook" package which includes a pre-show meet and greet, a copy of Fieri's soon-to-be-released Guy Fieri Food tome, onstage seating, and a chance to sample the chef's cooking (which may be heavy on the pig products, since the tour is being prominently sponsored by the National Pork Board). Food fans can snag their seats at or by calling 216-241-6000. The Palace Theatre is at 1615 Euclid Ave. in Playhouse Square. — Cicora
