Thanks to all for the kind notes wishing me a speedy recovery. So what got me so sick? You decide—was it the rodent, the giant grubs, the shrunken head, or the delirium I experienced when I returned from Ecuador and saw the Yanks and Mets on a seemingly locked and loaded Subway Series Collision? Or was it the Eli Manning deification fallout after his amazing comeback on Sunday? My Giants are back, baby. And unless you have ever feared for your life rooting for the Big Blue while sitting in the old Veterans Stadium, when Eagles fans would routinely throw Blue Backers over the railings, well you just have no idea how good that win felt. But I digress.
Louie's Habit closed! I am freaked out. Louie's had a lot of problems—they outpriced their competition, were guilty of not paying enough attention to how sandwiches were constructed (enough with the thick slices and misshaped bread), but they had the great slaw, pickles, and the best pastrami in town. Oy vey. Anyone know any details? Let me know.
Check out The View on ABC on Tuesday morning and watch me serve the gals some of the weird taste treats I have learned to love over the years. I hope I survive Rosie.
I got a lot of email recently asking me about when the next airing of the pilot for my new Travel Channel series airs. You can see the show on September 23 or October 9 or 10. Bizarre Foods premieres, with a whole new season, on March 12.
