Yes, that’s what I said.Â Pig Island.Â It’s exactly what it sounds like: every Vegan’s nightmare, and every fatass’ food fest fantasy!
Tomorrow, October 2nd, Â from 11:30 AM- 4:30 PM, Governor’s Island will be transformed into a “pork-lover’s paradise.”Â 20 + chefs will be entertaining your senses and your stomach with both innovative and traditional pork dishes, ranging from bbq and porchetta sandwiches to Vietnamese pork soup and Maple Bacon sticky buns.
Tickets to the main event cost $85, although there is a group rate of $80 for groups of 4 or more people.Â Although the price seems steep, this ticketÂ gives you unlimited access to the pig feast, as well as Sixpoint Craft Ales and NY State Wines.
For those of you who don’t think an all you can eat and drink pork festival is worth $80, there will be a public area with snacks and drinks available for purchase.
As always, transportation to Governor’s Island is free via ferry, departing from the Battery Maritime building at 10 South Street.
