Things Rich People Buy: A Date With Guy Fieri

Apparently, hedge-fund billionaire Steve Cohen paid $100,000 to hang out with Guy Fieri and “reenact a fantasy episode of ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,’” according to a new book out about the Food Network. I’m not much of a fan of Guy Fieri, but I really like “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” — mostly because I love seeing where the locals like to grab a bite all across the country — so I see the appeal of Steve Cohen’s fantasy date with Guy Fieri. My friends and I once drove from a wedding upstate back into the city and we searched the “TripleD Map” for a place to eat. The place we wanted to go to was closed, and our hearts were broken.
