Early May I received a call from a dear friend and Executive Producer from Spike Tv’s Bar Rescue Katy Dierks-Agiesta. She shared with me that she would be in Central Florida shooting the show and wanted to know if my wife Dawn and I wanted to meet up. She explained that she needed a couple to visit a sports bar in Mt Dora then-known as Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill. Katy explained to us that even though we were mic’d up and cameras were rolling to be ourselves and simply order from the menu.
What we didn’t know what was going on in the kitchen until celebrity chef Michael Ferraro came in unexpectedly and told us not to eat anything that we had ordered. He and Jon Taffer had witnessed the most unsanitary conditions that in fear of us getting violently ill we had to be rescued! Here’s the teaser for our episode.
Watch this season as Jon Taffer hits many other local Central Florida restaurants and bars to keep them afloat.
