Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives in Charlotte NC
There is no doubt about it. I love Guy Fieri. The Guy has personality popping from the tips of his spiky do to the bottoms of his sandal clad feet. He likes bling. He has tattoos and drives a snazzy rag top classic car. He is inventive and unabashedly in love with cooking, eating and making others happy. What is there NOT to like?
Friday nights I watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It is my ultimate chill out from a week of wild work within the music business.
Imagine my surprise to learn Guy in my semi-hometown (I’m from a “suburb” of Charlotte, Belmont NC), The Queen City. Yesterday my pal Laurie Koster actually got to be on set at a taping of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives at Cabo Fish Taco in Charlotte. What a lucky, lucky, lucky girl.
This all ties in nicely to SIMPLIFIED’s performance Sunday November 01 at MACS SPEED SHOP, (“a quasi-dive where the parking lot mixes bikes, Beemers and Bugs. Charlotte may not be a barbecue town, but Mac’s brisket inspired Photographer and “meat-atarian” Gary Clark, to declare, “This is better’n any I’ve had in Texas.” -Southern Living Magazine 6/2008) I hope to entice Guy, if he’s still in town, to check out the band at Mac’s, a former transmission shop turned barbeque spot and one of Simplified’s best nights of music!
