ALTON BROWN TAKES RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TOP PHILADELPHIA SPOTS TO EAT DURING “EAT YOUR SCIENCE” TOUR AT THE KIMMEL CENTER, NOVEMBER 5, 2017

 

PHILADELPHIA FANS NOMINATE LOCAL COFFEE HOUSES, BREAKFAST JOINTS, LUNCH, AND LATE-NIGHT EATS USING #ABROADEATSPHILLY

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA. September 25, 2017) –– What’s a road trip without great food? Television personality, author, and Food Network star Alton Brown launched his #ABRoadEats initiative to discover culinary treasures and connect with his millions of followers while Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science tours the country, stopping in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center’s Merriam Theater on Sunday, November 5, 2017. Today, he is calling on his followers for gustatory guidance in each of the 28 cities he will visit this fall. Fans in Philadelphia can submit recommendations for coffee and breakfast to late night munchies and everything in-between on his website, Facebook, and Twitter using #ABRoadEatsPhilly.

“We are excited to welcome back culinary connoisseur Alton Brown to our Kimmel Center Campus,” said Anne Ewers, President & CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Coupled with his perfect combination of humor and science, this tour engages our Philadelphia community in a fun and inclusive way. We’re encouraging everyone to take to social media to recommend their favorite city eatery!”

“Everyone loves telling out-of-towners where to eat. Typically we choose one coffee joint, one breakfast (or doughnut) stop, and a lunch stop,” says Brown. “Then after the show, we’ll hit a late night place.” Dinners are usually reserved for cities where the tour has a day off.

Brown tabulates the votes each day and makes his picks from the submissions. "I do not eat a single bite of food that doesn't come from the hashtag.” After his visit, Alton posts photos or videos and write-ups on his social media platforms.

Brown created a new form of entertainment – the live culinary variety show – with his “Edible Inevitable Tour”, which played in over 100 cities with more than 150,000 fans in attendance. The Eat Your Science Tour has sold more than 200,000 tickets in over 80 cities. Information about Alton Brown or the Eat Your Science Tour can be found on Facebook: /altonbrown; Twitter: @altonbrown and Instagram: @altonbrown.
