'Gary Vaynerchuk' on Serious Eats

Lapp, aka 'Pizzaexpert,' aka 'Worst Pizza' Appears on the Gary Vaynerchuk Show

Vaynerchuk gives him some good-natured shit because Lapp doesn't drink (the first guest to come on and not drink with him) and because Lapp likes the Miami Dolphins (Vaynerchuk is a HUGE Jets fan.)

Wine TV

Gary Vaynerchuk in Episode #285 of Wine Library TV. Two nights ago, a top television exec dined at Babbo and I was his sommelier. As I masterfully executed a long-pour across the table, I hinted at my desire to host my own prime-time wine television show. He said, “I think you’re right. I was speaking with the president of the Food Network over lunch yesterday, trying to convince him that this was a good idea. America is ready for it."... More
