Good Afternoon Tom,
I know you all are very important, as is your time so I will keep my message brief. My wife and I and HUGE Top Chef fans and have never missed a season. We saw Top Chef New Orleans is coming and we were hoping it might be possible to attend a Top Chef event. I know they do a series of challenges all over and we are not sure how guests are invited but we would love to attend if at all possible. My wife is from New Orleans originally and was displaced 90 miles West to Baton Rouge after Katrina so many years ago, but we still have strong ties to New Orleans. We are actually celebrating the 5th anniversary of our wedding at St. Louis Cathedral this fall as well, which only strengthens our ties to her home city. It would be a great surprise for her if it were a possibility to sample the cuisine of the Top Chefs during their stint in New Orleans. Thanks so much for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you. Sincerely - W. Meador
