Request for an Anthony Bourdain Board

The subject of Anthony Bourdain seems to be inexhaustible. People can't stop talking about him, what he says, where he eats, what he eats. Is he a drunk? What's his shoe size? They even try to start gossip threads about his home life.

Anthony Bourdain has become bigger than life. Chowhounders have become obsessed with him. Give the man his own board. It just seems logical since half the posts on the media board are about him, anyway. It would free up some space and provide some relief to the haters.

I hope you will see the sense in this and implement this promptly.

  1. That comes right behind the "All Tipping All the Time" board.

      that and the "I'm Coming to Your Town (Wherever You Might Be) but I can't Say What Food I Like or When - Where to Go?" board.

      1. re: hill food

        But those types of questions are the easiest to answer -- I typically just pick my favourite 2 or 3 of the moment. And because this is chowhound, I do my best to suggest great places that happen to be under the radar. Anyone can suggest Jean Georges, but it takes a different breed to recommend the arepa lady in the same breath.

        1. re: limster

          your answer requires some sort of specificity in the question, I was griping about the ultra vague RFI's.

          but I like your scope and range.

          1. re: hill food

            The way I think about it is that if there's no specificity in the question, then any answer, so long as it's delicious, is valid. This has the simultaneous effect of providing a chowy answer that will delight a chowhound and disappoint non-chowhounds who may have more narrow ideas of what constitutes a good restaurant. It's win-win, since it's positive reinforcement for chowhounds and negative reinforcement for the non-chowhounds.

    2. While I would be a regular reader/contributor, I doubt it's necessary.
      If you have AB. Then why not the "I Hate RR" board??


      1. No thanks! Form a fan club.

          1. Good god no. I'd rather see a Trader Joe board first.
