Guy Fieri Book Signing

On 12-12-09… Guy Fieri was in town with his “Roadshow”, we would have loved to go but it was just not in the budget this year. At our every weekend family breakfast my sister & brother in law asked if we were going to go see Guy, we told them that they knew we could not afford to go and they said “NO “we mean at Costco. It was true; Guy was going to be at our local Beaverton Costco signing his new book for More Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. My husband was so very excited that we went home and got our copy of the book and headed for Costco. When you came in the front door they gave you a number and sent to back towards the book department and they grouped everyone together by numbers in the line, we were #87. We waited in line just shy of an hour to see him, while we waited my husband went up to watch him do some signings and take his picture, Guy saw him wearing his shirt and ask that he come up to the table, because Ed’s shirt was the Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich T-Shirt. Guy signed his t-shirt right in the middle of the knuckle, Ed came back to me in the line and he was simply beside himself with excitement. When it was finally our turn to meet Guy he signed our book and they took our picture with him, he is just as nice and fun in person as he is on TV. Ed was even more beside himself when Guy said to him....Hey, haven't I seen you before? My husband said yes, you signed my t-shirt a little while ago. I spoke up and said that they had met each other earlier in the year in downtown Portland when he was taping the episode that featured The Blue Plate. Guy was all like OMG... That’s it! I knew that I remember you from someplace else. That was so COOL just for the simple fact that he meets oh so many people in his travels and that he remembered Ed. Ed and I would like to Thank John & Cheryl for telling us about this great opportunity to meet Guy Fieri.
