Editor’s Note: Todd Carmichael, the host of our new series Dangerous Grounds premiering tonight at 10|9c, is the cofounder of La Colombe Coffee Roasters. La Colombe is known for its premium coffee, sourced directly from the farmers by Todd, who goes to often-dangerous extremes to make sure his cafes are able to serve some of the world’s most sought-after and flavorful coffee. Dangerous Grounds documents Todd’s coffee-sourcing expeditions, and after tonight, the show will air Tuesdays at 9|8c. Travel Channel contributor Valerie Conners shares her experiences enjoying a cup of coffee at La Colombe, and proves that Todd’s passion for the flavorful bean is felt by anyone who drinks his prized coffee.
Tucked behind a simple storefront in Philadelphia’s tony Rittenhouse Square neighborhood lies La Colombe cafe, which proffers what many devout coffee drinkers would argue is the city’s — if not the country’s — tastiest coffee. To call La Colombe a mere coffee shop would be like calling Tiffany’s a mere jewelry store; La Colombe has brought coffee roasting to a veritable art form, and anyone in the neighborhood looking for a stellar cuppa knows to head straight to the cafe.

A Word From Anthony Bourdain:
“Our best to our friends the Randazzo family of Randazzo’s, Sunny Balzano at Sunny’s, Yuri Saian at Primorski and Roll-N-Roaster. They welcomed our crew with open arms when we filmed the Brooklyn episode of No Reservations — and all were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. We wish them each a speedy recovery so they can reopen for business soon.”
Tonight is the night. At 9|8c, No Reservations takes its final bow in Brooklyn, NY, a place that Anthony Bourdain thought he knew, just across the river from the city in which he’s lived nearly all of his life. READ MORE

If you saw last night’s episode of Making Monsters, then you got to see Ed and the Distortions crew make their monsters come to life with the power of Kinect for Windows technology.
The Distortions crew worked together to create a 14-foot demon and 2 4-foot-tall guard dogs that look as if they were crafted from molten lava. The Kinect for Windows team then came in to make the demon and his dogs even more sinister – their eyes track the visitors to the 13th Floor haunted house in Denver and the demon greets in his creepy voice. In fact, the dogs bark or growl when approached by an adult, or pant and whimper when approached by a child -– all through the power of technology.
But where did the idea for the interactive demon gatekeeper and his devil dogs come from? Well, the unbridled imagination of 2 young boys, of course:
