Giada's Weekend Getaways is a show on the US Food Network that ran from 2007 to 2008. The show follows chef Giada De Laurentiis around the USA for "3 day weekend adventures." The show begins Friday afternoon, as Giada arrives at her destination. She may begin with a light dinner, appetizer, and a cocktail. The bulk of the show happens on Saturday, beginning with a breakfast, some sight-seeing or activity, lunch, followed by another round of activity and finishes off with dinner, in which she goes all out, dresses up and has a night on the town. The show wraps up on Sunday with brunch and one last activity. As of 2012 the show was rerun on the Cooking Channel.
