Love him, or hate him, Guy Fieri is prancing around Denver

In case you haven't heard, Guy Fieri, the bleached-blond, back-of-the-head-sunglass-obsessed Food Network TV personality that foodniks love to loathe, is prancing around Denver, his film crew on his heels. He's here, of course, to film footage for Triple D, otherwise known as Diners, Drive-ins and Dives -- and it's not the first time he's been to the Mile High City.

In 2010, he hit up Steuben's, the Bagel Deli, Sam's No. 3, Bang!, Tocabe and Foolish Craig's Cafe in Boulder.

This outing?

So far, he's paid visits to the Denver Biscuit Company, Fat Sully's and Prohibition -- all on East Colfax -- and then he made his way over to the Highland 'hood, no doubt regaling the crew at Highland Tavern, where I once had a fantastic pork knuckle sandwich.

His schedule, however, isn't complete: according to our spies, he's also planning to feed his piehole at Hops & Pie, where he should also plan to spend a few hours at the bar knocking back a few craft beers.

Oh, and we also know that he was plied with a ton of cupcakes yesterday -- hand delivered, even! -- from Porche Lovely, the owner of Church of Cupcakes, on Colfax.

If you see Guy sauntering around town, send us your photos. We'll probably deface them, but maybe not.

I sure enjoy reading Cafe Society.  So much very interesting things going on in Denver,  I have lived here 54 years and would not want to move anywhere else.  We have it all, urban settings, mountains, great Mexican food and lots of other great restaurants.  Loads of wonderful shopping too.

Yahoo, Denver ROCKS!

Go easy on GF; he's still reeling from the bad review the NYT gave his Times Sq. restaurant. Funny, because everybody knows that when in NYC, you never go to Times Square to eat.

I still think it's refreshing to see such an affable personality promote local businesses so genuinely year after year, without any of the snobbery so rampant among food industry consumers.  This attitude is truly more groundbreaking than most are willing to acknowledge.

I saw Guy today, at my favorite sandwich shop...near 3920 Tennyson. He was gracious and charming, and his staff was awesome. I'm hoping it gives my favorite place a boost; not that they need it, it''s mondo busy there already, but they have plans, lots of plans....

I don't think I'd recognize this person if I saw him, but then I try to pretend reality TV stars don't exist.

He must've stolen your spelling powers too. If you actually have *diabetes, maybe you should learn how to spell it correctly first...just a thought...

Saw him filming on Colfax at Atomic Cowboy last night. I was hoping there'd be a hit & run.

I can't stand the triple-D-bag, but there is no arguing that his visits provide a huge boost for the economic situation of the small restaurants that end up on his show.  For that reason, and that reason alone, I'll welcome him back to Denver and even into my neighborhood... just don't come back for at least another 2-3 years.

@bugsycook It used to be good to watch it until they started shoving it down our throats every Friday and Monday night.  Too much of a good thing.  I don't watch him at all anyone, I got tired of his personality.

@Dan Brown not a reality star really although that is how he got his start. He has a great personality for TV and started triple D which quickly became the number one show on Food Network. He's a family man loves food and is funny, don't know what all the hate is about. ya'll sound pretty snooty to me.

@Michael Buddy Gallegos Jr THAT would be my ONLY reason to dislike Guy. Love him otherwise.

@wutevr Bourdain has lost my respect by agreeing to be a part of The Taste.  What a godawful concept - Masterchef crossed with The Voice.

@Manfrenjensen No doubt. Federal Blvd. is diner and dive heaven. Skip the trendy spots and head straight to Red Claw, Columbine Steakhouse, or New Saigon Bakery.

@NWDenver @wutevr I stopped watching The Taste when I saw Bourdain was on it.  He is so immature that he can not speak even one sentence without getting "bleeped".  No respect for anyone who listens to him, so I just DON'T listen to him!
