When the Steelers meet the Packers, Italy meets Texas, and Mario Batali meets Tim Love, there's going to be a wild Spaghetti Western throwdown that isn't exactly a Sergio Leone movie (although Batali and Love in Stetsons is something we'd like to see). The boy from Babbo and the lad from Lonesome Dove Western Bistro are co-chairing a Dallas Super Bowl Weekend party on February 4th which, with cocktails, dinner, cooking demos, silent and live auctions, and a cast of characters that includes mad-dog chefs Guy Fieri and Emeril Lagasse, is going to be hotter than Austin in August.
Plus, the Spaghetti Western, which may blow the roof off Tim Love's Love Shack S07, is a benefit for the Mario Batali Foundation (supporting children's education, food, and health programs) and the Moyer Foundation's Camp Erin (a camp that helps children in bereavement). Jamie Moyer, MLB pitcher and founder of the foundation with his wife, Karen) will also be on hand, as will Texas Ranger Tommy Hunter.
