Carnivores, let's eat our hearts out!  I've been wanting and wanting to go to Animal for such a long time and just haven't made it out.  Well, I'm ready to pig out with you guys and I'm especially looking forward to trying some nasty bits :)

Let's share family style, dishes TBD...

Based on 6 people sharing, I think we can reasonably get away with spending about $30/person excl tax and tip.  Again it depends on what we get.  I'll see if I can procure a more recent menu.
