Oh, I remember last year when we washed ashore in Red Hook, Brooklyn, then went whole hog and feasted on some tasty porky eats and brewtastic libations! Well, looks like we will raise the sails and wash the poop deck again as we are headed back to Pig Island on Saturday Sept 12 to pig out on all things hog, and wash it down with cold beer, wine, cider, and some whiskey too! Now that’s the way to spend a NYC weekend afternoon at the end of summer. Who said the summer is over? Not when we have these kinds of festivals going on.

Oh, that’s right, did I say there will now be whiskey featured at this swinetacular event? Yes siree Bob! What better way to wash down some pig than with a fine liquor to soothe the palate. An artisan whiskey tent on hand is expected to include local and regional spirits from High West, NY Distilling and Van Brunt Stillhouse, among others. Reverend Nat’s Cider, and Sixpoint craft beer will be among the other libations. Get in mah bellah!

My mouth is already watering just thinking about it! Drool. Hopefully the weather gods will grace us with a decent day out, but rain or shine make no mistake and arrive hungry and ready to eat! Continue reading Take a trip back to Pig Island for a porktastic time in NYC!

I do sometimes forget that we live along the water right on the Atlantic Ocean and the multiple waterfronts offer amazing views for ample public events to take place.  I happened to partake in one this weekend called Pig Island, and it was on the waterfront in Red Hook, Brooklyn. As the name implies this one was all about the pork and I did make quite a pig out of myself. Beer, cider, wine, pig and pork products. Oh my! The tickets were all inclusive and we took full advantage of it. Talk about being a total piggy! By the end of the day we rolled out of there. I ate so much pig! Drank so much beer and cider! Oink!
