Today show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are filming in Seattle this week, and will apparently be trading in their usual wine-swilling for a session with none other than Murray Stenson. The folks at Canon report that Stenson will be making cocktails for the ladies Thursday morning; the segment will be recorded some time between 8 and 9 a.m. Stenson, you'll recall, is the newest addition to the bartending lineup at Jamie Boudreau's glorious new cocktail haven.
Canon partner Andrew Fawcett says Stenson hasn't decided what drink he'll be making, but "the producers wanted something that represented Seattle." Filming happens down at Pike Place Market, naturally, so perhaps something that pairs nicely with tossed whole fish?
The episode featuring Seattle's most storied barman will air Friday, though Seattle Met's Laura Dannen says the show will broadcast live on Thursday as well. She's also got details for those of you who want to get up at the crack of dawn to watch all the madness go down. Who else is making an appearance?
