Alton Brown at Proctors

Looking way ahead: food guy Alton Brown will be at Proctors February 13 (yes, 2014) for his "Alton Brown Live" tour. Tickets are $20 and up -- they're available now.

Tour blurbage:

With his upcoming tour, Alton Brown brings his brand of quirky humor and culinary-science antics to the stage. The ninety minute show is a unique blend of stand up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and, for the first time...live music.
Audience interaction is strictly enforced throughout the evening though; if you're called upon as a culinary assistant, you'll definitely want to take the lab coat Brown offers as things tend to get messy. Brown has worked his weird magic on live audiences across the nation for over a decade but this is the first time he's actually hit the road with a live tour.

Brown is, of course, famous for his work on the Food Network. He's the host of Iron Chef America and appears on Next Food Network Star. But he rose to fame for his excellent Good Eats show, which explored the technique and science behind food in an accessible and fun (often goofy) way.

One of our favorite, simple takeaways from the show: you can make microwave popcorn by putting pop corn kernels in a brown lunch bag, closed with two staples at the top. Super easy and super cheap.

This is so exciting. I will totally be there.. BTW it's only One Staple for the Microwave popcorn Not Two. He made a big deal about this on the show, because of the whole Don't put metal in the microwave thing.

Wait, you can put staples in the microwave?? Even just one??
