(3106 Olive Street
) will be hosting a new Travel Channel series, 101 Best Places to Chow Down in America
, this Sunday, October 4, from 1-3 p.m. Pappy's will be barbecuing a whole hog for the cameras, which is always a reason to stop by.
Meanwhile, Gerard Craft sent word via Twitter
last night that he has promoted Niche
