Hacking Up Pigs? Kid Stuff. Bloodhound Event Promises to Butcher a Steer
Maybe pigs are the gateway
drug of butchery, the giggly little high that leads inevitably to the synapse-busting experience that leaves you watching the fibers in your flokati coalesce into runes.

On Tuesday, July 28th, meat gods Ryan Farr and Taylor Boetticher are slated to drop a load of whoa on Bloodhound (1145 Folsom at Langton) in SOMA, when they tag-team butcher the forequarter of a 175-pound steer hanging from the rafters. The creature will have been grass-fed (of course), raised at Magruder Ranch in Mendocino County and aged 21 days after slaughter. Farr and Boetticher's helpers will grind the flesh into patties, and grill the burgers (along with other beef parts) in the alley outside. Also promised: corn dogs, pancetta-wrapped peaches, chicharrones, and peach-infused bourbon cocktails.
Called Meat-Locker (that otherwise superfluous hyphen suggests, perhaps, the extra-kickass nature of the evening), the event costs $35 -- contact Brown Paper Tickets. Doors open at 6 p.m.
