THE CRAVE: Pork, pork, pork
THE DESTINATION: Pig Island in Red Hook, Brooklyn
When pigs can fly. Its such an Interesting expression about things that will never happen. Pigs certainly don’t have the capacity to fly yet but that’s a relief for pork lovers who came out to Red Hook last weekend for the annual Pig Island. Why? Pork dishes were soaring right into their hungry mouths.
Pig Island is an all you can eat event with numerous vendors serving up the best pork dishes they have. From sandwiches to crispy pork rinds to desserts with the almighty bacon, there was alot of pork to be devoured. The drink choices were aplenty too with beer (Sixpoint Brewery), French wine (Discover Beaujolais) coffee (Califia Farms), cider (Down East Original Sin) and whiskey (High West, Hudson).
Here’s a photo recap of my top three favorite eats:
If you missed out, there’s always next year to pig out. Happy eating and remember: don’t deny, satisfy!
