You may recognize Chef Stone as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice or as the host of the most recent edition of Top Chef Masters. Around my house, we know the handsome Aussie from his two seasons on Take Home Chef who used to stalk grocery stores looking for attractive young women whom he would follow home, then cook dinner for her family. Or as my girlfriend calls him, "that guy I'd leave you for in a Melbourne minute."
Curtis will be visiting the Hotel Indigo Downtown at 301 Union St. this Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and will be soliciting stories from Nashvillagers about who makes the best local dishes in their neighborhoods. The event is intended to kick off a contest where some lucky local could win a trip to the Big Apple. Here are the details:
Starting on July 27th, consumers are invited to enter the Locals Know Best sweepstakes by attending the Dish on the Dish event and by visiting www.Facebook.com/HotelIndigo. Applicants will be asked to share their favorite local dish for the chance to win a VIP trip for two to New York City to experience some of the most diverse food neighborhoods and dishes in the country. Whether you are looking for charm, culture, character or sophistication in your food, New York is the place to find it. From the trendy, chic restaurants of Chelsea to the hip, unique destinations in the Lower East Side, one lucky winner will be able to visit some of Hotel Indigo’s favorites!
I really hope my girlfriend doesn't check out Bites today. ...
