what you’re watching this weekend

Ok, two things you should watch this weekend: the Browns game on Saturday and The Great Food Truck Race on Sunday which premiers on The Food Network.

The first is obvious. Preseason, sure, but hey – The Browns are back! As for the latter, local chef and food truck ambassador Chris Hodgson is one of eight national contenders driving cross-country competing for the $100,000 grand prize. In fact, he’s the only chef from the Midwest. Very exciting for this 25-year-old energetic and driven chef.

If you’d like to cheer Hodgson on in the company of others, there’s a viewing party this Sunday at the Happy Dog. And be sure to read what celebrity chef and host Tyler Florence said about our own Hodgson in USA Today.

Good luck team Hodge Podge!

Full disclosure: I am helping Chris locally with his PR for the show (but I’d be spreading the word for him regardless – who wouldn’t?).
