Anthony Bourdain is moving on to greener pastures, and our hearts (and stomachs) will follow the writer, chef, and snarkmeister to CNN when he starts his gig at the cable news giant.
For now, however, we have an entire new season of No Reservations to look forward to.Since it's Bourdain's last hurrah, we can anticipate some all-new adventures in eating and drinking, no?
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - The Final Tour, which premieres its ninth and final season on Travel Channel on September 3, sees Tony in the deepest darkest jungles of ... Brooklyn.
No, seriously. According to Travel Channel, after eight years of traveling around the globe, our intrepid host winds up in Brooklyn for the series finale.
Before he makes his way back home, look for Bourdain to eat and drink his way through Austin, Texas; Sydney, Australia, Northern Italy, the Burgundy region of France, Rio De Janiero, Brazil; and the Dominican Republic.
What activities can we expect (besides the usual eating street food and drinking until semi-comatose)? How about Ferrari racing, diving with sharks, getting more tattoos, and the most shocking and dangerous activity of all -- riding the Cyclone at Coney Island?
As the countdown to the
end of the world series finale marches on, the Travel Channel is asking Bourdain fans to vote for their favorite episode on a href="http://www.facebook.com/noreservations">Facebook. The most popular one will air on November 5, right before the end of all life as we know it (we're rooting for the Chernobyl episode).
Here's a little sneak peek of what's in store for us, courtesy of Travel Channel:
Hey, Tony, you know that shark fin soup you had? It had a mom ... and she's pissed.
Tony gets another tattoo.
Here's a video of "Bourdainisms" for you to watch. Tony, we'll miss you.
