Live-Blogging Iron Barley's Appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2008 at 8:42 PM

As I posted earlier, at 9 p.m. tonight Iron Barley will be featured on a new episode of the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

The episode is titled "Neighborhood Joints," which is a better description of Iron Barley than diner, drive-in or dive. At any rate, I'm home, it's on in 20 minutes, I figure why not live-blog it.

I'll be back shortly.

8:49 p.m.: I'm drinking a beer (Schlafly Dry-Hopped APA, if you must know), which seems appropriate. Right now Unwrapped is on. I can't believe this show is still on. Marc Summers must wake up every day and thank God he isn't doing Double Dare 2008 at an amusement park near you. Either that or he has photos of Paula Deen and Tyler Florence at the Food Network Xmas party.

8:53 p.m.: Oh, God, a hot-dog eating champion at the end of Unwrapped. Might have to turn to ESPN. Maryland women's basketball team in the Elite Eight. Go Terps!

8:57 p.m.: Dude ate 8.6 pounds of asparagus in 10 minutes. How long until the asparagus pee wore off?

9:00 p.m.: And we're on. Guy Fieri looks like a Fraggle.

9:01 p.m.: Dude in a O'Fallon Brewery t-shirt. Nice plug.

9:02 p.m.: That's a lot of garlic. Maybe Coghill will kill Fieri. By mistake, of course.

9:03 p.m.: "I could put this on flip-flops, and it would taste good." - Fieri.

9:04 p.m.: Schnitzel and spaetzle. Amen.

9:05 p.m.: There's an electric saw. Come on, Coghill. Kill! Kill! I mean, smoke! Smoke!

9:07 p.m.: And that's it! (It was the first segment! Hooray!) Congrats to Tom Coghill and everyone at Iron Barley. I can't wait for my next visit. All right. Off to make dinner. See y'all tomorrow.
