Top Chef in San Antonio

Apparently Top Chef from Bravo has been filming in San Antonio.According to the San Antonio Express News, they were filming outside at the Culinary Institute of America at the old Pearl Brewery,on the river.Also, they were at the Alamo too. According to local media,Paul Ruebens, who played Pee Wee Herman,visited the Dallas Cowboys training camp. I saw him on tv with Tony Romo and some of the other players. Apparently they were filming a spot with Top Chef at the Alamo, and Pee Wee Herman is in it.Don't sure what the connection is, I assume to judge some food. Thought i'd pass it along.

  1. Just read a blurb that Emeril and Hugh Acheson will be new frequent judges. Could be interesting.

      I just read that on CNN - it took me only a moment to place Hugh "The Eyebrow" Acheson. I think he'll be a great judge - he seemed very funny and genuine on TCM.

    2. oh boy! I'm looking forward to the new season.

      Def don't get the connection between the Cowboys, Ruebens and food, but we will see! :)

      thanks for the update.

        I think they have to make a meal in the basement of the Alamo for Paul Ruebens. :P
