Anthony Bourdain Visits Buffalo

Buffalo musician, booster, good Democrat and so on Nelson Starr (The Tails, Eric Starr Group) has worked his butt off to make this a reality in boosting Buffalo and its cuisine, so I will let him take it away with his press release below:

"Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations Buffalo" - SCREENING PARTY - : to be held at the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery this Monday, July 27 2009 at 7:30 PM ...Free and Open to the Public!!! This Monday, July 27, a long-overdue opportunity for the entire world to take a second look at Buffalo - via an appearance on the Emmy award nominated Travel Channel show, Anthony Bourdain-No Reservations - finally becomes a reality!

Buffalo, NY, July 23, 2009 - will be hosting a screening party where the Travel Channel broadcast will be aired live for the public. This event will take place on the above date at the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery, start time is 7:30. Besides screening the show at the event, the hosts will also air all the episodes of All Access Pass with Nelson Starr, including premiering Episode 4, which features Dyngus Day, the Broadway Market, and Spar's European Sausage Shop. Adventures in Buffaloland and other video content, including the initial Travel Channel submission video, will also be screened.

It's been an eventful 18 months for Nelson Starr and his cohorts at It all started with their video submission to a Travel Channel contest - that ultimately spawned Starr's initial appearance on Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations; coaxed a subsequent visit by Bourdain, filming for his show in Buffalo; and the almost inevitable creation of a new network and program to fully tap the momentum generated by Starr and crew's Travel Channel success.

By combining high production-value media with engaging content (and a good dose of sheer fun), John Paget and Nelson Starr's new network,, and it's flagship series, All Access Pass with Nelson Starr, is raising the bar on internet TV programming in WNY.

The network,, was launched in January of 2009 to rave reviews. Airing two new series, the quirky Buffalo food-tour show, All Access Pass with Nelson Starr, and Tim Tielman's Buffalo architecture primer, Adventures in Buffaloland, the gang was off to a great start.

Almost simultaneously to their network launch, Starr and Bourdain were making the rounds, filming their Buffalo segment for ...No Reservations. Now, finally set to air as the "Rustbelt" episode, the Buffalo segment of No Reservations will appear alongside stops in Baltimore and Detroit. The entire tri-city episode will be broadcast on Monday, July 27, 2009, at 10 PM on the Travel Channel.

Val and I will be there and we hope as many of you as possible can attend.
