Things are looking up for CNN’s Anthony Bourdain, who hosts “Anthony Bordain Parts Unknown.” The network has picked up the show for another season. Tonight he’ll grace CNN’s Washington bureau for the first time to sign books and take pictures with the staff and the talent.

Then he’s off to DAR Constitution Hall, where he’ll host “Guts and Glory With Anthony Bourdain.” The evening will center on the host’s gastronomic escapades around the globe and what really goes on behind kitchen doors. As described by the Ticketmaster website, “Bourdain will cover current controversial issues in the gastronomic world and dish on hot topics as only he can.”
