FN Dish contest

Visit the FN Dish to enter for a chance to win a autographed Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives book.

Guy's Big Night airs February 25, 2009. The show was taped in early October.

Recently (on December 11, 2008), the associated press reported that the DDD book is #15 on the TRADE PAPERBACKS section of the "BC-Best-sellers-Books-PW" (whatever that is).

As far as I can tell, Guy has had a small number of book signing events: at the NY Wine and Food festival (just minutes after Bruce Seidel's interview pictured above), at two locations on the east coast in late October, at two locations in Southern California in early November, and at two cooking demonstrations in Cleveland, Ohio and in Des Moines, Iowa in mid-November. He's also had two book signings in his home area of Sonoma County, at his restaurant Johnny Garlic's in November and at Copperfield’s Books in Santa Rosa mid-December.

Not a great video below, but I like his last statement on meeting fans, "Best part of my life ..."

A girlfriend of mine got that book, and got it signed too. I don't think I'm interested in the book. I have no intention of traveling around the country to eat at small diners. ??
