Check Out Check, Please!
October 08, 2010
I recently had an opportunity to appear on KCPT’s locally produced program "Check, Please!". On this program, viewers are asked to nominate their favorite restaurant for review, visit two other restaurants nominated by other guest reviewers, and then we meet to discuss all three restaurants on the air. If you are a Parkville Branch customer, you have probably driven by my favorite restaurant, Nick & Jake’s. My fellow reviewers nominated the Avalon Café in Weston, and Grunauer in the crossroads arts district.
This experience was one of the most fun things I've ever done in my life! We waited in the green room for our turn with the makeup artist. I’ve never looked so good! We were given strict instructions not to discuss our opinions while waiting for the show to begin so that our reactions would be genuine. Doug Frost, the host, was very welcoming, and made us all feel at ease although all of us were very nervous.
The Riverside Branch also has in its collection Viennese Cuisine written by Peter Grunauer, owner of the restaurant.
New episodes air on Thursday nights at 7:30, and the episode I appeared on airs October 14. For more information on the program, visit http://www.kcpt.org/checkplease.
