Martha Menocal, an administrative specialist with El Güero Canelo's corporate office, said this morning that the Travel Channel is sending a film crew to El Güero Canelo's original location at 5201 S. 12th Ave. on Friday, Jan. 29. All fans of the eatery are invited to show up to show their support, and possibly get their face on national television.
Then, on Saturday, Jan. 30, El Güero Canelo will challenge BK Carne Asada and Hot Dogs at 5118 S. 12th Ave. to a Sonoran hot dog challenge while the Travel Channel cameras roll. Tucsonans are invited to attend the taping.
Menocal said the Travel Channel decided to return to Tucson after they taped an episode of Man v. Food here that featured Lindy's on Fourth, Mi Nidito and El Güero Canelo. She didn't know what the name of the new Travel Channel show being taped for was, or what time the tapings would take place. She said flyers with information about the event would be distributed in the coming days.
Also worthy of note: Adam Richman, the host of Man v. Food, tops his list of best places to eat in the country with Elvira's, the Nogales, Mexico, eatery that relocated to Tubac some time ago.
