Alton Brown comes to Sarasota's Van Wezel

   Alton Brown, television's most entertaining foodie, is coming to Sarasota.
Alton Brown
   He'll bring his engaging combination of silly humor and instructive culinary science to Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall with a show called "Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour.”
   It's not until 7 p.m. March 2, 2014 -- that's a Sunday -- but tickets go on sale June 7. You can get them for as little as $10, but the best seats are $125. Call 941-953-3368 or visit
   Brown is best-known as the host of "Good Eats" and "Iron Chef America." He recently won "Munchie," a people's choice food award, as best food TV personality.
   Press materials say his show combines stand-up comedy, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, live music and food experimentation. Some audience members will have the opportunity to serve as Brown’s assistants on stage. 

   By the way, if for some reason you can't make that Sarasota show, Brown will also be at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa the previous evening (Saturday, March 1, 2014). Call 813-229-7827 or visit for tickets to that one.
