Phew!
I wonder how they got out, ship? helicopter? Nevermind, I read his interview..
They will all have plenty of stories to tell...and he is so right, how lucky they were.

"I wonder how they got out, ship? helicopter? "

I heard on Thursday mid-afternoon (KGO) that he and crew had been evacuated aboard a US Navy ship.

Watching Beirut die

"We went to Beirut to film a TV show about the city's newly vibrant culinary and cultural scene. Then the bombs started falling, and we could only stand on the barricades of our hotel balcony and watch it all disappear -- again."

Thanks for the update, Kathryn, and welcome to the site.

This was a harrowing read, imagining what everyone was going through then thinking of who else was trying to get out..I am so very glad that they are out! And those families too.

From another list. I don't have a TiVo, but I'm assuming that at least some of you TiVo this show.

---------------------
Just a quick heads up to all the "No Reservation" viewers that use a TiVo
to
record "No Reservations".

The Beirut episode is setup as a special, so your Season Pass for "No
Reservations" won't pick it up. They did the same thing for the "Ferran
Adria" episode. I missed that one because of that. But now I know the Beirut
will be the same way, so I'll have to set up a manual recording of that
episode.

I thought it was an odd show. To some degree you can see Bourdain recognizing this. The world around them is going to hell and there they are lounging at a pool and making gourmet food in a hotel kitchen. To some degree, Bourdain's reflections that get cut in are at odds with what you see.

Until now, you could only buy one episode at a time for $10 each. Looks like they're making a multi-pack of the first four episodes available for about $20 through Amazon:

I don't know if you were paying attention, but tonight was the debut of a new season (or second half of a season?).

Started the trip in Shanghai, then Yunnan, then Tibet. Good episode. Made me almost want to go to China.

Recorded it but haven't watched it yet.

I've been watching a lot of the old BBC Gordon Ramsay Boiling Point episodes they've been showing on BBC America, though...also a new season of Kitchen Nightmares...new ones are Thurs. at 9pm, I think.

Next week is going to be a double whammy. He's going to be on Bizarre Foods and Andrew Zimern is going to be on No Reservations with him. Both doing New York.

The China episode was good...better than some of the episodes of last season.

I saw that about the double dose of Andrew Zimmern and Bourdain in NYC. I've got it set to record.

FYI, Bourdain attended but did not graduate from Vassar but Zimmern did, in 1984 (the year before I got to campus). He was written up in our alum mag, The Quarterly, which is now online: http://www.aavc.vass...foods-summer-07

I was just looking at Famous Fat Dave's site, the one I took the food tour from when I was in NY, and he's going to be on the show on Monday. Now I'm definitely going to be sure to tune in!

Me too! Btw, Siam Society has a caipirinha on their cocktail menu. Haven't had it myself, but have heard it's pretty good.

I wonder how that would go down with some fried bull testicles. :D

I used to get them at Salvador Molly's but I can't bring myself to go back in there lately.
