I attempted to eat the Quadruple Bypass Burger at the Heart Attack Grill in Vegas for a new series by Zagat called “Why Would You Eat There.” Ugh I feel like I just got beat up by food. #zagat #wwyet #vegas #heartattackgrill #lasvegas
I’m headed to one of these places right now to shoot a few eps for a new series called Why Would You Eat There. A new travelogue series for Zagat where we eat at the weirdest restaurants in the country. First stop, the Heart Attack Grill in Needles (kidding, Vegas. The one in Needles was all booked up) #zagat #wwyet #vegas #lasvegas
I spent the first half of this year producing and co-hosting a web show called the Why Would You Eat That Challenge. If you haven’t seen it, we basically fed exotic food and drink to comics and YouTuber’s. It’s a bag of big dumb fun.
Some good news to share. MSN ordered 10 ep’s of the WWYET Challenge and those are going to be coming out very soon. Until then, here’s a handy bookmark-able link to all the episodes that are currently online at YouTube’s Tasted channel.
I had an absolute blast putting this show together. Special thanks goes to my co-host and Executive Producer Michael Truly, DP/Editor Clint Gage and graphics whiz and tech extraordinaire Chris LaGarce. Pretty much the nicest bunch of guys you can pick to dick around on a web series with.
I’ll be posting the 10 (tighter and flashier) ep’s as they become available. But until then may I suggest one of the following?
Last year, Michael Truly and I hosted a web show called the Why Would You Eat That Challenge Each week, comics and YouTuber’s ate exotic food and drank exotic drank. You know, with challenges and stuff.
It’s a big bag of dumb fun. Here’s the whole shebang in a remarkable-y bookmarkable-y list.
WHY WOULD YOU EAT THERE? The Edison - Downtown Los Angeles, CA PART 1: The History
Remember awhile back when I was posting about this new travel series I was co-hosting for Zagat called WHY WOULD YOU EAT THERE? Well it’s up and running! First stop is the Edison in downtown LA, a former powerplant turned fancy-pancy bar. Check out the history of the Edison at the Tasted link below and then hop over to the Zagat to see plate after plate of amazing food. And quips! Don’t forget our tiny little quips!
Lots of amazing eps will are in the pipeline including the (barf) Heart Attack Grill (barf) in Las Vegas (more barf).
Stop #2: The Cave Restaurant. About two hours outside of St. Louis, this place used to be a speakeasy and where teenagers had dance parties. (Goddamn teenagers) This guy found it and spent 5 years digging out 2000 tons of rock and turned it into a restaurant. They do good catfish. #wwyet #zagat #caves
Question: What’s better than Jenga? Answer: GIANT JENGA
In this weeks WHY WOULD YOU EAT THAT CHALLENGE, the Cooking Channel’s Alie & Georgia battle over a game of Giant Jenga to see who has to eat Belacan. What’s Belacan you say?! Watch this 4 min vid and find out.
Regram from @sicrowell of us and out waitress Nikki at the Heart Attack Grill. Fun fact about that place, if you don’t finish your food they make you bend over in front of the entire restaurant while they smack you with a wooden paddle. Hard. It was so hard I actually fell to my knees. Vegas is a weird place. #vegas #wwyet #zagat #tastedyoutube #heartattackgrill
