In our Culture Meter, you'll find Anthony Bourdain’s Guts and Glory tour touted as a guilty pleasure. But some of us gave up guilt for 2013, so we’re showing our unabashed excitement for bad boy Bourdain’s stop at the State Theatre for a raucous evening of talk about food politics and culture. Bourdain invited a new guest to join him onstage for each leg of the tour, and his old pal Andrew Zimmern was the natural choice for the Twin Cities. We’re looking forward to hearing these globetrotting foodies riff off each other as they field questions from the audience. With our booming taproom, new Nordic, and fish farm scenes, there will be plenty to talk about. May 11. $45.50–$65.50, 805 Hennepin Ave., Mpls., 612-339-7007, hennepintheatretrust.org
