Meat Sweats

Last Saturday I attended one of the greatest festivals I've ever been to--Meatopia! Creator Josh Ozersky created Meatopia which was dubbed the "Woodstock of Edible Animals". The meat-fest showcased the talent of over 45 chefs from around the nation while giving guests a great variety of tastings from whole roasted pigs to grilled goat. Tickets were kind of pricey, but it was totally worth it. Tickets allowed you 4 hours of eating not to mention picturesque views of Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park and live entertainment. The lines were short and most stands still had plenty of food by 7:30 when Fields and I got there. Tasting portions were big, almost too big. its probably a good idea to share and go back to some of your favorites. I think I was full after 7 stands or so. We got our second wind and tasted some more awesome food before we decided to head out around 9:30. An awesome way to spend a Saturday in NYC. Good company, music, meat, and beer--enough said.
