The only thing in this whole wide world better than a pig roast is a pig roast for a good cause. Come support Slow Food Chicago as you feast on roast beast with all the fixin's at Chicago's hippest picnic, held once again at Goose Island Beer Company (the brewery itself, not the pub!).
This year features Duroc & Duroc's fat and happy signature pigs (who are fed mash from Goose Island's facility throughout the year, those lucky bastards!), plus an all-star lineup of Chicago Chefs:
Paul Fehribach of Big Jones
Curtis Gamble of Bread & Wine
Andrew Horza of Goose Island Brewpub
Beverly Kim, Top Chef Alum & Kendall College Instructor
Rob Levitt, Butcher & Larder
Jared Van Camp, Old Town Social/Nellcote
Sarah Mispagel of Nightwood
Ryan Stevens of Handlebar
Admission price includes all the roast pig, sides and dessert you can eat, plus a commemorative glass that you can fill up over and over again with Goose Island beer! CHIRP Independent Radio will keep the party rockin', and all proceeds will benefit Slow Food Chicago's mission of good, clean and fair food for everyone.
Fine print: This event is 21+ ONLY -- please bring your ID! It will be held rain or shine. Once your ticket is purchased there are no refunds, but as this event always sells out you should have no problem selling or giving away your ticket if your plans change. Purchase tickets by clicking on http://www.slowfoodchicago.org/index.php/events/. Don't forget that you MUST have a ticket to get into the event -- simply RSVPing here will NOT get you in.
I'm one of the volunteers for this event, so please stop by and say "hi!" -- I'll be at the ticket table between 3:00 and 4:45 pm. (And no, I won't let you in for free, lol!).
