We made a mention of Giada's Weekend Getaways a little while back and the new program featuring GDL will make its debut this evening at 9:00 PM. It's a travel show with Giada going on a weekend getaway to one location or another, hitting the local scene and, no doubt, spending quite a bit of time sampling the cuisine.
I will say that the number one thing that people coming to TVFF.com want to know is what kind of car she's "driving" in the commercials. Not being a car guy, I didn't know. Someone over at Yahoo! Answers asked the question and judging by the picture on the page they link to, I'd say he might be right that it's a "Austin Healey either late 50's early 60's, the model I would guess is a 1959 3000 mark I." Credit to "red_drifter" for making the call.
The show itself is getting a bunch of notice in the press, listed in a number of publications' "What's New on TV" round-up and here in the Miami Herald, where they give a run-down of the local South Beach locations that Giada will be visiting on one of tonight's back-to-back episodes.
In other Giada news, Adam over at Giada Fan has a a couple of new posts up, so be sure to check it out when you get a chance.
