Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science is the follow-up to the smash Edible Inevitable tour. Fans can expect all-new everything including songs, multimedia presentations, talk-show antics, and bigger-and-better, potentially dangerous, food demonstrations.

Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans alike have raved about the interactive components of Brown’s shows. He promises “plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but this time we’re going to play a little game while we’re at it. Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.” He’s also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows…just in case things get messy…again.

Heeeeere’s Jenny!
One-time Playboy Playmate and former The View co-host Jenny McCarthy and her husband, Donnie Wahlberg, stopped by Enigma bar in St. Petersburg Sept. 20 to a packed crowd. Word of the celebrities making an appearance after McCarthy’s stand-up performance at Clearwater’s Capitol Theater spread quickly through social media and fans lined up for a chance to meet the power duo. McCarthy brought the star quality, appearing in sunglasses as she entered the bar. Paul Kinchen of TinkerFluff.com—who is also a regular photographer for Watermark—managed to arrange the meeting through his connections in Pinellas County. McCarthy and Wahlberg met fans, took photos and enjoyed some pizza while they mingled. The pair stayed most of the evening and seemed to enjoy the attention.
