Alton Brown brings his food science to Charlotte

Sorry I didn't get this posted earlier in the week. Knowing Alton Brown, he could probably tell me all kinds of gross science about the very bad cold that's sidelined me.

Anyway: Alton Brown will be the headliner of a special evening at Knight Theater on April 20 as part of the two-week N.C. Science Festival. "An Evening With Alton Brown" will combine kitchen science, comedy, droll commentary and a Q&A session.

Tickets are $32.50 for regular seating and $150 for a premium pass that includes a shirt,  stage-front seating and a meet-and-greet with Brown after the show. They go on sale at 10 a.m. today at the Blumenthal site here.

Brown also will be in Durham on April 18 as part of the festival. The N.C. Science Festival, coordinated by the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at UNC Chapel Hill, will feature events all over the state from April 5-21. For the whole listing of events, check the calendar (Zucchini 500! Science of Baseball! Reptile Fun!) at

I had a chance to meet Alton Brown years ago at an early Charlotte Shout event back at the peak of his Good Eats fame. I haven't kept track of his latest stuff, but still enjoy watching those reruns. I'll probably pass on this appearance since I'm a cheapskate. But it looks like it might be fun.
