Guy Fieri photo shoot closes a city block

On June 7th, 2009, Guy Fieri twittered (tweeted?) that he was "Doin' front cover photo for Triple D book II."

So there you have it, a formal announcement that there will be a second "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip ... with Recipes!" I can only hope they'll make this second one have a shorter name?

The next day, the Press Democrat reported that a city block in the downtown Santa Rosa area was shut down for almost two hours. The photo shoot occurred in front of Guy's Tex Wasabi's restaurant after he had obtained a permit from the city to have Fourth Street between Mendocino Avenue and B Street closed Monday morning.

I should add that the article mistakenly says, "The event took place outside Fieri’s Rock N’ Roll Sushi restaurant on Fourth and included one of his trademark vintage cars," and of course we all know that the red car behind Guy in the photograph is not his; it belongs to the producer of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Incidentally, it appears Guy had a nice, fresh bleach job for the photo shoot, eh? Those roots were pretty dark in L.A. last week, man.

Sherrie Blondin conducted the photo shoot. The permit cost $75.
