Television personality Anthony Bourdain on Thursday wrapped up a busy workweek in Charleston with beer shakes at The Joe.
Social media was briefly ablaze with news that Bourdain and Husk chef Sean Brock, who apparently served as Bourdain’s local host, joined actor and local resident Bill Murray and “Eastbound & Down” star Danny McBride at the RiverDogs game. The celebrity chefs snacked on foot-long hot dogs wrapped in bacon, ramen, brisket sandwiches and tacos, a team spokesman said.
RiverDogs’ general manager Dave Echols called the appearance “pretty cool.”
According to sources close to the production, Bourdain was in town to film “Parts Unknown,” his CNN show featuring “little-known destinations and diverse cultures.”
Through his publicist, Brock declined to comment.
Photos posted on Twitter over the course of the week showed Brock and Bourdain drinking at The Griffon, eating at Waffle House and hanging out with Abundant Seafood’s Mark Mahefka.
Bourdain in 2007 devoted an episode of “No Reservations” to Charleston. His shooting schedule for that show included a meal at Jestine’s Kitchen, a Civil War reenactment, a fox hunt and an oyster roast with the Lee Brothers, who served Champagne in mason jars.
