Guy Fieri Food, the Road Show, kicked off in SC

The Guy Fieri Food Road Show kicked off last night at the N. Charleston Performing Arts, N. Charleston, SC, with the usual suspects: Guy Fieri, his krew, and a 6-foot-tall margarita machine. And reviews are positive.

@JonesWorksInc tweeted, "Backstage @ Guy Fieri Food-The Road Show! Charleston, SC loves them some @GuyFieri!!"

Flair bartender Hayden “Woody” Wood opened the show that lasted some 2 1/2 hours.

Guy Fieri made Sangria Shrimp, but the show is much more than just about cooking. wrote

Striding back and forth across the stage, the television super-star chef told funny stories, bantered with his crew, hurled T-shirts into the waving arms before him, and pumped the crowd into repeated frenzies. A loud, thumping music mix that bounced from “Sweet Home Alabama” to “That’s the Way I Like It” and many points in between set the tone for what Fieri called a “Foodapalooza.”

Guy told his "how not to deep fry a turkey" story, and audience members played "Face the Cookie" from Minute to Win It.

As he has in the past, Guy invited local ProStart students to prep and cook for the show. Senior and captain Jillian Reilly said, “He’s funny and crazy.”

And Guy continued his "Cooking with Kids" message, saying, "We believed that processed food, faster food, convenience foods were going to take care of us, as long as we got the caloric intake, as long as we gained the energy source. Well, fine. We found out that’s not working. We have childhood diabetes, childhood obesity going on. Kids haven’t changed, the food’s changed. We have to get real food."
