Guy Fieri's Triple D trip to Duluth, Minneapolis / St. Paul, MN

Filming crews for the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives began taping segments for the show in Duluth, MN on Tuesday, May 11, 2010. They are scheduled to stay in the area, hitting local eateries, at least through the 18th and longer if needed.

Typically, production crews arrive in the area 3 - 4 days in advance of Guy Fieri, shooting beauty shots of the food and brief interviews with diners. Guy's schedule is not announced publicly, but I'd anticipate that he'll tape his kitchen segments from Saturday the 15th through Tuesday the 18th. That's just a guess - I'll update this post as new information comes in.

Where will Guy Fieri eat in or around Duluth, Minnesota? A usual production schedule includes 6 or 7 restaurants within a 100-mile radius, or so.

When does Guy have time to sleep? He is always on the go!

Dora said...

Brad, haha, I know! Just sittin' here in my chair, I can barely keep up with him. ;)

That means they will be in Minneapolis tomorrow and then on to Duluth

Dora said...

Anon 5:09, I expect so, yes. We typically see two shoots in one day. So another half-day on Sunday in MPLS, which leaves travel time to Duluth; shoots there starting on Monday.

*update - word on the street is that taping has moved up to Duluth Sunday, May 16.*

It's unusual to see weekend productions! A bit more common to see them Mon - Thurs. So we are a bit out of our element with this one. ;)

Guy just wrapped up shooting at Kramarczuk and is on his way to Colossal Cafe on 42nd Street. Then up to Duluth.

Dora said...

Crazy! Haha, but ok! Again, thanks for the tips!

I love DDD fans .... :)
