Hotel Monteleone Hosts Book Signing for Travel Channel’s Mark DeCarlo
Comedic reading and show followed by book signing of A Fork on the Road: 400 Cities, 1 Stomach

New Orleans, LA (May 2, 2011) – After eating his way across the country as the host of Travel Channel’s “Taste of America,” Mark DeCarlo is stopping at the Hotel Monteleone for a comedic reading and show followed by a book signing for his new book, A Fork on the Road: 400 Cities, 1 Stomach, on Monday, May 9 from 12:00PM to 2:30PM.

In true Mark DeCarlo style, the book signing event will be anything but ordinary. He will treat guests to a reading of selected excerpts in which he references the Hotel Monteleone and his foodie experiences in the Big Easy with a comedic twist, of course. DeCarlo will also engage Carousel Bar patrons in comedic trysts and original musical performances while they get a taste of one of his personal favorites, Hotel Monteleone’s famous gumbo. As a special addition to the event, he will raffle an all-expense paid vacation to the Caribbean. Guests will receive one raffle ticket for attending the event and five additional tickets with the purchase of DeCarlo’s book.

“The Hotel Monteleone is my favorite hotel in America. All jokes aside, the Monteleone embodies all that is southern class and charm from its service to its amenities. It just made sense to hold a signing there,” said DeCarlo. “I visit New Orleans often and I never question where I’m going to prop my feet up at the end of the day. The only question I ask in New Orleans is where am I going to eat next!”

DeCarlo, a modern day Renaissance man who has found success as an actor, comedian, radio personality and television host, is now adding published author to his list of accomplishments. The former Travel Channel host has compiled his eatery experiences—both the weird and the wonderful—into a love letter to American food curiosity. While in New Orleans, DeCarlo will be sampling the delicious culinary delights of Jazz Fest and resting his full belly at the Hotel Monteleone.

“We are so pleased to welcome Mark back to the Hotel,” says Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. “Mark and his book embody the best things about the city of New Orleans; a love of great food, fun and unique traditions.”

Since the book was published three months ago, DeCarlo has been visiting a different city every weekend; performing his culinary comedy show, meeting fans, signing his book and sending lucky fans on an all-expense paid vacation of a lifetime.
