The Travel Channel's Man Vs. Food Takes on Richmond!

You know the show... one man eats insane amounts of food.... often the sloppy artery clogging kind, sometimes it's the blazin' hot kind. In between you learn about some interesting food spots and some of their signature dishes.
Well, Wednesday night's episode will feature all Richmond restaurants including one of our favorites... The Black Sheep. Here is an excerpt from the e-mail sent to us by The Travel Channel. ....
"Richmond Episode - Wednesday June 30th at 9:00 E/P In the colonial capital of Richmond, Virgina, Adam explores the city’s love of revolutionary cuisine. For his first stop, Adam hits up Richmond’s famous Buz and Ned's Real BBQ for the best BBQ in Richmond. Buz and Ned’s Real BBQ is famous for their hickory and oak smoked spareribs slathered in sweet and sour BBQ sauce -- a real Richmond legend. Next, Adam visits Black Sheep where the sandwiches are not subs, but a fleet of battleships! Adam chooses to eat the incredible USS Brooklyn in honor of his hometown in New York. Weighing in at two and a half pounds, this two-foot long sandwich is loaded with peach chutney, an entire pound of jerk chicken, homemade slaw, and a roasted banana ketchup.
Finally, Adam stops by Caliente to take on the Stupid Wings Challenge: eight jumbo wings drenched in a sauce so spicy, that it is just stupid to eat! The sauce is a concoction of cayenne habanero, pure chili extract, and a secret inferno marinade from the “container of pure judgement”. Can Adam conquer the unbelievable Stupid Wings Challenge?
Want to know more about Adam's ultimate hunger quest? Be sure to watch the all-new episode on Wednesday, June 30, at 9:00 E/P."
