Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are in town for the Today show and we've got clips galore. In the first clip, at the 6:15 mark, Hoda bites into a Po Dog, while Gifford refuses to sample hers because "my mouth is not big enough". The ladies then mock Rick Perry and Paula Deen. They sample a Top Pot donut. Finally, they gingerly handle a geo duck. Skip ahead to the 10:25 mark and pay attention, or you may miss Canon's Murray Stenson serving up The Last Word, a Prohibition-era cocktail.
In another Today segment, the ladies try beer selected by Washington Beer Blog's Kendall Jones and wine presented by Seattle Wine Gal's Barbara Evans. Unsurprisingly, the duo do not take to flavor-packed, hoppy beers. KLG puts on a sour face, while tasting all of the Washington beers: Elysian Brewery's Coche de MediaNoche, Pike Brewing's Auld Acquaintance Hoppy Holiday Ale, Redhook Extra Special Birthday Beer, and Trade Route Brewing's Ginger Pale Ale. Hoda and Kathie Lee enjoy the Washington wine though: they(double-fisted) sip "O" Chardonnay, the 2008 Le'Ecole No. 41 Syrah, the 2009 Gramercy Cellars 'Third Man', and the 2009 Hard Row to Hoe: Shameless Hussy Merlot.
In annnnother bit, Hoda and Kathie Lee visit SkyCity and the Olive Way Starbucks. Here are all the videos:
