'Porkapalooza' Offers Another Chance to Mix Butchery with Boozing
Remember how much fun Bloodhound's last mashup of butchery and boozing was? Here's your chance to touch the magic (ar at least risk being splattered by it) all over again. On June 16 - next Tuesday - Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats and Taylor Boetticher of Fatted Calf are tag-teaming for Porkapalooza: Two guys, one pig, and several scary-looking knives. Instead of demo-butchering separate pigs as in May's hackoff, they'll work on a single victim suspended from the ceiling, slaughterhouse style.
Relive the magic.
Munchies include the pig, grilled, as well as hot dogs, which are shaping up to be the new bacon. You'll get to sample Farr's 4505 hot dogs, Fatted Calf's dogs, and everybody's favorite -- corn dogs. You can bet 4505's fetishlike chicharrones will be lurking in snack bowls, too. Sip an old fashioned made with the bacon-infused bourbon we've been trying to track down, too, or simply wash down all the meaty extravagance with a brewski. Tickets? $30. Get 'em at Brown Paper Tickets. Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom (at Hallam), 6 p.m.
