Friday, March 9, 2018, was the BEST DAY EVER!! As you can tell by the title, this was the day that my mom and I went to go see Guy Fieri LIVE! At the Hyperion Theater. This was a ticketed event, I paid a total of $200 for my mom and me to attend.
When I read the description, I was a little unclear what I actually paid for other than seeing him LIVE on stage.The event started at 8pm, so we checked in at 7pm in the esplanade. We showed our receipt, and in exchange, we got a park ticket that said Guy Fieri LIVE at the Hyperion Theater on the back.
Once they opened the doors my mom, and I found seats the third row back from the stage and in the middle. It was PERFECT! Then, they announced his arrival, and he was literally in front of me…I was freaking out a little because it felt so unreal. He brought out Goofy, told some jokes and of course he brought out his son Hunter to help him cook. Which their relationship was really refreshing, you can honestly see the love they have for one another on stage.
Guy made Trash Can Nachos, a Sandwich and Apple Pie Milkshake (alcoholic). Now, my mom has been obsessed with the Trashcan Nachos since she saw them first on Diners, Drive In’s and Dives. This was the only thing she wanted to taste and all she would ever talk about. At the end of the show, Guy said: “Oh don’t worry you guys will get to try all of this stuff when you exit the theater”! The look on my mom’s face was priceless, she couldn’t believe she was actually going to try the Trashcan Nachos.
The coolest part though was when we exited the theater they had lights up, tables set and walls up so you couldn’t see DCA. It was a “private” party, so we grabbed our food and picked a table and talked…as we were talking this person puts a hand on my mom’s shoulder and asks “so hows the food?” YES! Guy Fieri, asked my mom how she was enjoying the food and proceeded to fist pump us and made his rounds. This was the coolest because he made sure to stop and chat a little with everyone there before heading back in.
All and all I would say this was worth every penny. We had such a great time he made us laugh, he makes delicious food, and he was a really cool dude, and I would LOVE to attend another event like this!
