ELV’s Staff Will Miss Him…

[imagebrowser id=1224]

ELV has posted a ton of stuff today — from the sad (Rosemary’s closing) to the sublime (Manon’s ham and cheese croissant) — because within minutes, he will be off like a prom dress to New York City for Friday’s taping of another episode of Iron Chef America at the Food Network studios in downtown Manhattan.

Au revoir mes amis, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the next four days as we eat (and judge) our way through the Big Apple!

ELV has been busy…soon to get busier

We’ve been a little busy lately, both as a lawyer-at-law and in preparation for another Iron Chef America taping next Friday in New York City. Which explains why there have been no new posts in the past few days.

To make it up to you, we will bombarding you with our gustatory tales and travails until next Wednesday, and then will be shutting down the site between July 14-21.

For those in desperate need for an ELV fix, we suggest following us on Twitter, as we have maxed out on friends on our Facebook page.

You’ll have to excuse us now, as we have to go figure out a way to lose fifteen pounds (and ten years of gray hair) in the next five days.

This Just In – ELV Judging Iron Chef America Tonight

The last time we judged Iron Chef America, the Food Network folks told us a month in advance when we’d be on…setting the stage for all sorts of merriment.

Now that we’re just another mega-famous food celebrity, it seems they’re taking us for granted…and we found out about our show’s being televised just this evening…thanks to a Facebook friend (and Vanguard bartender) Dustin Drankiewicz…who probably saw the early feed from the east coast via Direct TV.

Anyhoooo….at 10:00 pm pst, on the Food Network, tonight (approx. 1 1/2 hours from now), ELV will be appearing as a judge on Iron Chef America’s Battle Passion Fruit!

The good news is Battle Passion Fruit, pitting Iron Chef Jose Garces against challenger Michael Solomonov, will be re-broadcast this coming THURSDAY at 8:00 pm EST/PST on Channel 42 in Las Vegas.

Tune in then and be prepared to see ELV in all of his white-suited, preternaturally suntanned, short-haired glory!
