The Dude Diet: Book Tour Schedule

BREAKING NEWS: Girlfriend’s going on tour with The Dude Diet!!!

That’s right, people. I’m taking my book baby on the road, and I could not be more excited to talk to, cook with, and hug as many of you as humanly possible over the next two months!! (If the handful of DD events I’ve done thus far are any indication, this tour is going to be all kinds of awesome/delicious/heartwarming/hilarious.) I will also be making an appearance on some of your local TV and radio stations, so if you can’t make it to an event, I’m hoping you’ll still be able to catch me on ze airwaves!

There’s a smorgasbord of festivities on the docket, ranging from traditional signings to cooking demos, but I’m pleased to report that all are FREE to attend and more than 50% will involve booze of some sort. (Thank God.) Groovy details listed below. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!

p.s. Bad huggers freak me out, so if you know your skills are subpar, please start practicing, stat. (Don’t be shy, most people really enjoy hugs.) Oh, and let’s agree right now to go for the hug so we don’t have an awkward handshake/hug sitch. Gracias.

p.p.s. There are a few other events in the works for late spring/summer, so I’ll be updating this schedule once they’re locked and loaded. Stay tuned…

  • Alex Morris

    Ahhhh YES! This is the best news ever. Can’t wait to meet you when you come to Charleston!

    • SO excited to finally meet you in person!! xoxo

  • GF

    forwarded this to my friends in these cities!

  • Becca

    What, no Chicago?!?!
    🙂

    • I KNOW, so disappointing. But there is a small chance Chicago will be worked in sometime early march–still chatting with some folks there!

      • Becca

        Keep me updated if you do! Yay!

  • i do not see Texas on the list, particularly Dallas or Fort Worth 🙁

    • UGH, I know. Still on my longer term list–since there are some many potential Dude Dieters there. (And you of course!!) xox

  • Kay Battista

    I live in Ohio, but I am just missing you in Charleston 🙁

    • DAMMIT. We are long overdue to meet in person! xox

  • Oh man, I’m bummed DC’s not on the list! Especially with the promise of booze at the events!

    I have a life-long fear of raw chicken thanks to the onslaught of infomercials & news reports about salmonella and other charmingly named bacteria. So I rarely made it myself because I was just worried about not cooking it thoroughly and when I did cook it, I would pretty much hack it to pieces to make sure there were no raw spots and would end up with a pile of shredded chicken. I gave your idiotproof chicken a try and my god, my world was rocked!!!

    • Ugh, I’m bummed about DC too, but I’m working on adding it to the second leg. (If you have any recs on boutiques/bookstores, lemme know!)
      SO pumped idiotproof chicken has rocked your world–it’s probably my favorite hack of all time!! I make that chicken multiple times a week and the perfection never ceases to amaze me.

  • Robin Woodcock

    This tour needs a Maine summertime stop!

    • There will be two!!! I just haven’t listed them because they’re so far out–one in early August (with COA) and one just before Labor Day (at the NEH library)! xox

  • Alfredo Garcia

    Hopefully attending the Chicago date if all goes well with work. Do you have any dates planned for Atlanta?

    • Fingers crossed I get to see you in Chicago, but if not, I’m working on getting an Atlanta date on the calendar later this spring!

  • Thomas Hosfelt

    Come to Nashville! My wife says I’m a great hugger!

    • Working on Nashville at some point in the next few months!!

  • Kay Battista

    What is your advice for a dude who eats granola between meals by the cereal bowl-ful and says it’s a health food?

    • Ugh. This one is tricky as I know many a dude suffering from the same delusion. I’d start by explaining that a bowl of most store-bought granola has as much sugar and more calories than a Snickers bar? And if he must eat granola, he should consider eating homemade and limiting himself to one serving a day. The truth hurts…
