Check, Please! Two Debuts Tonight

Season two of Check, Please! kicks off tonight on WPBT-2, with Michelle Bernstein returning to host and lead each week's panel discussion. The show features three dining enthusiasts who escort one another to their respective favorite restaurant, then afterward in the studio, make-believe they are reviewers and dish about the meals. In other words, they are trying to steal my job.

Among the 15 folks chosen for this season's five new episodes are a Coral Gables school teacher, Palm Beach County town commissioner, and Fort Lauderdale actor. Unbeknownst to them, while they were filming I filled in and taught history, vetoed a traffic ordinance, and performed, I am told, a credible Polonius in Hamlet.

Anyway, the show airs Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. -- starting, as we say, tonight.
