The crowd at Chelsea Market After Dark is psyched to party with Alton

A star-studded, food-filled weekend of festivities officially kicked off last night with numerous events around New York City. Along with hundreds of fans, we noshed, sipped and chatted with Alton Brown after hours at Chelsea Market—which happens to be Food Network’s headquarters.

Almost time for Halloween: Alton in jack-o-lantern form

As the host of Chelsea Market After Dark, Alton held court in the Good Eats lounge, which was done up with all kinds of memorabilia from the show’s ten years, plus tastes from his brand-new cookbook, Good Eats 2: The Middle Years. Mmm, soft pretzels and herbed popcorn!

Good Eats fans recognized some folks in addition to Alton—many beloved characters from the show, including his sock puppet yeasts, made appearances at the party. This was only fitting, as the yeasts were key players in the Pretzel Logic episode.

The yeasts! In person!

Hanging out in the lounge was like stepping into a Good Eats museum—albeit a museum where unlimited food and drinks are allowed and welcomed. There should be more museums like this.

    I would have loved to have been there to see the yeast. They are so adorable and are the highlight of many of the Good Eats shows. Thanks for the picture of our heroes.

    Alton Brown is my FAVORITE celebrity chef. However, I am concerned about his look lately. He seems too skinny, in fact sickly. Alton, I hope you are not losing weight because you think you are fat. You are extremely handsome and we like you just the way you were, with a bit of meat on your bones… Hoping everything is ok…
