Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives: Metro Diner

I was invited to participate in a taping of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives at the Metro Diner in San Marco. Let me first say that I'm pretty much a Food Network junkie. I pretty much always have it on, no matter what time of day it is. When I got wind from a friend that Guy was going to be filming in the area, I got SO excited!

The morning started at 10am. Guy and crew were already inside hard at work filming the dishes to spotlight, which were the "Yo Hala on the Square" stuffed french toast, the Pittsburg Steak Salad, and the Mealoaf Plate.I don't want to really give away all the behind the scene secrets as to how it all happens...but I will say that I did finally get interviewed by the producer about what I thought about the place and the food. I hope they like my interview enough to show it on TV :)

I leave you with a few photos!

Guy giving a description of the exterior. The older man is the Field Producer, Mike Morris. VERY nice man and really funny!

This guy's nickname is "Fraggle" and he does most of the prep stuff w/ the stand ins, giving instructions and what not. He actually has the trailer with all the equipment and Camaro, and he is the one that drives it everywhere. Cool guy to talk to, he said it's great checking out the entire USA from the road.

Metro's Menu board.... if you look in the top left corner, you can see where Guy spraypainted his logo and autographed it!

Crabcakes Benedict.... SO good at Metro Diner!!

Oh No! Our secret is out! We love the Metro Diner! As a vegetarian it is so hard to find good food served by a restaurant, Metro more than makes up for everyone else's shortcomings. I also have a food network addiction, thank you Guy for "feeding the need".

I had forgotten that I had recorded the show, and finally watched it last night. Before moving to St Augustine, we lived in Pitsburgh, so the show was rather cool.
I don't know you, but you are now a celeb in my book!

I think that what you composed was actually very logical.
But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title?
I ain't saying your information is not solid, however what if you added a headline that grabbed folk's attention?

I mean "Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives: Metro Diner" is
kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo's front page and see how they write post headlines to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything've written.
Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.
