With the writers strike about to come to an end, Drew Carey has declared last call on those delicious free meals at Bob’s Big Boy and Swingers.
The emcee of The Price Is Right announced on X today that picketing scribes have until midnight to enjoy one last plate of goodness at the two restaurants in Toluca Lake and Los Angeles.
His post gave writers another opportunity to say thank you for funding all those meals. “You are a national treasure,” wrote Adam Pava.
“I hope you get all the good karma because buddy you deserve it,” added Alex Blagg.
Carey hasn’t done interviews about his decision to cover those tabs since the writers hit the picket line in May, so no one knows exactly how much he’s forked over for burgers and fries. One estimate is that he’s paid for more than $500,000 worth of meals at Bob’s Big Boy alone; another published report said the tab at Swingers was averaging $10,000 per week.
For those who can’t thank Carey enough, a guest book was placed at Bob’s for all the hungry scribes to show their appreciation.
Carey, who executive produced and starred in his eponymous sitcom from 1995-2004, just debuted the next season of The Price Is Right from his new headquarters in Glendale.
