We just got an e-mail from Jessica Stephens of the Metropolitan Tucson Convention and Visitor's Bureau about an effort currently underway to bring the show Man v. Food back to Tucson:
You might recall that MAN VS. FOOD came to Tucson in September 2009 to film a segment where host Adam Richman was shown tackling plates of delicious grub at Mi Nidito, El Guero Canelo and Lindy’s on 4th.
We now have a chance to bring this show back to Tucson by voting for a fan-made video on MAN VS. FOOD’s Facebook page. Click on the link below to watch Tucson food lover Kyle Hook give his video testimonial as to why the show should choose Tucson for a return visit:
You can vote for Kyle’s video one time per day until August 11th, when the winner will be announced. Must be 13 or older to vote. Valid e-mail address is required.
This program gave enormous nationwide exposure to Tucson’s many culinary delights when it filmed here before, so please share this with as many Tucson folk (and out-of-towners) as you can!
She has a point. Business at Lindy's went through the roof after the episode aired, and remains strong today. It's amazing what a little national exposure can do for a restaurant.
