The second and larger room had more food stations, the stage, and about 4 80s arcade games. I remember seeing Pac Man, an old favorite of mine. When Guy came on stage, he announced a band from California, but I cannot remember if their name was Hearts of Romaine or Heads of Romaine. I was in the first room sitting down and munching when they performed a few songs. The band had a retro vibe and sounded cool.

Guy thanked and wished a "Happy Birthday" to the man responsible for putting the event together (think his name was Don or Dan) and got the crowd amped for the band. He told the audience one fan would get the shirt made by Pucker Vodka. Guy hand picked the fan rocking out the hardest. This fan is pictured above and she rocked the shirt and was allowed to stay on the side stage the rest of the night. 80s tribute band The Ronald Reagans were a blast, and got the crowd dancing and singing to hits like Def Leppard "Pour Some Sugar On Me," Bon Jovi "Livin’ On A Prayer," Guns 'n Roses "Sweet Child of Mine," Beastie Boys "Fight For Your Right," Nena "99 Luftballons," Joan Jett "I Love Rock N Roll" and countless other songs.

As seen above Guy rocked out on stage, even sang a little with the band, and with Chefs Nadia G and Andrew Zimmern. When Andrew Zimmern came on stage he sang and played air guitar with a hot pink fender and the crowd went nuts. It was such a great time even though all the 80s songs made me feel real old! The band performed about four extra songs thanks to Guy.

|Awesome Guy Fieri Glasses we got! :)|
I hardly ever drink beer these days but really wanted the pretty Negra Modelo glass I saw people with. I went for it, tried Negra Modelo and actually liked the dark brew. I got two Negra Modelo glasses and by the end of the night, ended up with 4 Guy Fieri glasses which are great for hot and cold drinks. They have a snazzy design too…We also got cheesy sunglasses in neon green that volunteers were giving out. I love Badia spices and use them daily so it was cool to get a bunch of seasoning packets: Jerk, Sazón Tropical, Sazón Completa, Crushed Red Pepper, and Whole Black Pepper. Yum!
