Anthony Bourdain’s show No Reservations will only have one more season. Sad to see this guy leave the air, as I have always found his take on destinations around the globe surprising and humorous. The very last season will follow past season’s by traveling the world, exploring street food, delicious restaurants and incredible cultural differences. The most recent episode was a in Rio last night. It was another great night of caipirinhas, food, and some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
No Reservations has been on the air since 2005, and even won an Emmy for it’s take on traveling the globe. According to Travel Channel.com No Reservations “encounters the weird, wild and downright outrageous personalities and places that help define the international cultural landscape. Whether it’s eating the raw eyeball off a bloody seal carcass on a kitchen floor, flying through the treetops of Vancouver on a zip-line, or hunting for lizards in the desert of Saudi Arabia, Bourdain refuses to yield to middle age or tar-stained lungs when adventure comes calling.”
The final tour destinations include Austin, Texas, Sydney Australia, Northern Italy, Burgandy, France, RioDe Janiero, Brazil with the final concluding episode in Brooklyn, NY. To watch the newest episode check out No Reservations The Final Tour on the Travel Channel on Monday’s 9/8Central. Another fun recommendation ” Kitchen Confidential” portrays Bourdain’s own life as a chef and his start in the food industry. He self admits he is not a great chef but he loves to eat food and you can hear his real stories of where it call began.
On Anthony Bourdain’s blog he sums up his conclusion of Non Reservations as the following–
“There’s always a right time to leave a party. Any party. No matter how good it is. Some examples of when—exactly—one might consider the notion that one has tarried too long could include:
1) Your host asks you to leave
2) You’re tired.
3) You’re drunk or otherwise inebriated and well on your way to memorably embarrassing yourself.
4) You’re among the last people there and staying longer would make you seem tragic or desperate
5) An unapologetically steaming butthole has just arrived and no possible good can come from you being in the same room with them.
6) There’s a better party down the street.
7) Someone puts Nickelback on the sound system.”
Thanks Tony, you will always be a favorite comedian, chef, and traveler!
