The annual Pig Island event is heading our way. Who’s excited? Well you all should be. On Saturday September 6th from 11:30am- 4:30pm, for a cost of $75 you will be treated to a one of a kind affair.
Chefs from some of the best restaurants in NYC, like Butter and Tavern on the Green, will be whipping up pork in dishes varying from mashed potatoes, to spare ribs, sliders, roasted pork, clams, pizza, “Merpig” (a roast pig wrapped in seaweed) nuggets, and spring rolls. There are so many dishes you might need the whole day just to sample them all. If you are brave you can even eat “hog’s head” cheese. I don’t really know what that is except that I have a very strong reaction to say no if I am ever offered that.
To top it off this festival is also having an array of beers, wines, hard ciders, and stations to help you pair them appropriately with what you are eating.
For any vegetarians who want to attend there will be plenty for you eat as well. No one is being left out. The more the merrier!
There will be live music (band yet to be announced) and even games and prizes to be won.
Considering how much it can cost to go out to eat, never mind drink in this city, this seems to be a great deal. It is a nice day out with foods and beverages you might not otherwise have a chance to taste. What could be better than that?
