As promised in the aftermath of Anthony Bourdain's last visit to Jones Hall in 2010, the foul-mouthed chef is back -- and this time with Eric Ripert, Bourdain's constant friend and foil. Bourdain and Ripert's speaking engagement tomorrow night is rightfully called Good vs. Evil and although it's not sold out, it'd be a whole lot cooler if you could get tickets for free.
That's why we're giving away a pair of tickets to tomorrow night's show to one lucky person. What's the catch? Simple: Come eat with us.
We're hosting a five-truck mobile food court in Jones Plaza in honor of Bourdain and Ripert's visit to Houston. We've invited five of the city's best trucks and made sure to include a few of Bourdain's favorite genres: French and Korean.
L'es-Car-Go will round out the French end of things, while Coreanos has the Korean bases covered. Additionally, you can grab a Texas-sized burger from Bernie's Burger Bus, a waffle sandwich from The Waffle Bus or a intergalactic snack from the Eatsie Boys. (Or hit all five, whatever; we're not judging.)

Once you arrive at the food truck court, make sure you sign up to be entered to win the pair of Bourdain and Ripert tickets at our Houston Press table. If you can't find the table, look for our Street Teamers in their signature red-and-black shirts.
The tickets will be given away prior to the show, which starts at 8 p.m. And the food truck court itself runs from 5 to 7:30 p.m. While we hope to see you there, let's be honest: We're really hoping Bourdain or Ripert show up for a pre-show meal, too.
