Check, Please! Bay Area CHECK, PLEASE! BAY AREA

Thank you for your interest in KQED's television program Check, Please! Bay Area; the weekly restaurant review series in which Bay Area residents, just like you, share dining-out experiences in a lively roundtable discussion. We are now interviewing potential guests for our next series.

If you would like to tell the Bay Area about your favorite local eatery (restaurant, supper club, diner, lunch cafe, dive, hole-in-the-wall, stand, etc.) on Check Please! Bay Area, go ahead and complete the form below.

Please note that in order to appear on the show, you must be at least 21 years old, and be willing to travel to and participate in a taping at KQED studios in San Francisco. The taping will take place on a weekday and last a few hours. If you are chosen to be a guest on the second season of Check, Please! Bay Area, you must also be able to get to the KQED studio at your own expense, and to travel to any restaurant location within a 50-mile radius of San Francisco.

Remember, the more expressive and detailed you are on this form, the more likely it is you'll be considered as a guest.

We love hearing about those restaurants that are off the beaten path -- the more interesting the locale or cuisine, the better.

Thank you and good luck.
