coming march 2nd the return of “aporkalypse now” pork & beer fest
I love pork. Pork chops, pork belly, roast pork and pork buns are among my favorite foods in the world. Bacon, too, in small doses—preferably on top of mini cupcakes. While I enjoy medium rare steaks and a good roast chicken, there’s something about pork I cannot resist. When it’s cooked to a perfect tenderness and rimmed with just enough fat, no other flavor compares. Except butter, maybe.
On Saturday March 2nd, a group of celebrated NYC-based chefs will come together to prepare ten(!) pigs in various delicious ways for the second annual aPORKalypse Now festival. To pair with the pig-centric dishes, twenty local brewers will offer craft beers including “rare cask ales and special homebrews.” The event will be held at Alewife in Long Island City.
Each $40 ticket gets you ten pork dishes and ten beer tastings. Reserve your spot at aporkalypse13.eventbrite.com. (Sorry, you have to be at least 21 to attend!)
As a thank you for following this blog, I am giving away a pair of tickets to one reader. It will make an excellent Saturday afternoon date. To enter, simply ‘heart’ this post or reblog it. You can also send a message on Tumblr or email me. I will randomly pick a winner and contact him or her this weekend. Good luck!
