Hey Chowhounds,
I heard about the Top Chef Tour. These are the tour cities and dates:
Boston, MA - July 1
Philadelphia, PA - July 4
Pittsburgh, PA - July 9
Columbus, OH - July 12
St. Louis, MO - July 16
Denver, CO - July 19
Phoenix, AZ - July 26
San Diego, CA - July 30
San Francisco, CA - August 2, 3
Los Angeles, CA - August 8
Des Moines, IA - August 16
Detroit, MI - August 23

Chicago, IL - September 3, 4
Raleigh, NC - September 13
Tampa, FL - September 20
Orlando, FL - September 24

I live in Colorado and possibly would be able to attend in Denver, however; I cannot seem to find out where in Denver they will be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. See this link for more info - doesn't look like the Bravo website has any additional information or clickable links:

    1. Just a guess on my part... but clicking on boston and pitt, both of those are at Whole Paycheck Market while the Phili location is at the Taste of Philadelphia (Penn's Landing).

      For Denver, my guess is that Whole foods will host the Chefs, unless there's a food festival in Denver that weekend.

      This whole tour thing just seems cobbled together and disorganized... just based upon the website.

      1. EIther they are counting on minimal interest because of their lack of publicity, or they have woefully underestimated crowds.

          Here is some info that doesn't appear on the Bravo site...

          Sounds like everything is being done in their own truck with seating for 38 people inside watching live and 300 outside watching via CCTV.

            "With one show reserved for local cable channel affiliates."
            It's not as if Bravo comes into homes any way other than cable or satellite.
            No local ads to be sold...(I know some local stations give big advertisers major trips and other perks)....but what the heck is a local Bravo affiliate?

          1. Did they mention who was going on this tour?

              Can I just express my disappointment with the fact that they are not coming to Minneapolis, please? I mean, we aren't exactly in the middle of culinary nowhere over here, but it feels like that, now. I mean, really...Des Moines, but not Minneapolis? Argh.

              1. re: Phaedrus

                Can't find a list of names, but based on the photos and who I recognize ... Looks like SC4: Richard, Antonia, Stephanie, Andrew, Dale SC3: CJ, Casey, Hung SC2: Sam, Marcel SC1: Dave, Tiffani, Miguel

                Feel free to correct me anyone, cause again, just going by a rough photo identification and the figures are little, especially the folks in the back!

                  FYI Dates and signup for Philly and Denver are up on the bravo site now.

                  1. re: mliew

                    Looks like Dale and Nikki from TC4 are at the WF in Cambridge, MA for the Boston show. But they were "sold out" before any link was actually available to click!
