To celebrate the arrival of their seventh issue, the nice folks over at Meatpaper
are celebrating with a "pig party" at Camino
(3917 Grand, Oakland) on April 27. The party for the last issue was a gas (see Tamara Palmer's report
), and editor Sasha Wizansky promised that the lines wouldn't be as bad this time around, so this shindig should definitely be worth the schlep to Oakland.
The $35 ticket
covers porky eats such as fireplace-roasted pig, corn dogs, sausages, pig tails, chicharrones, and cold cuts by Camino chef Russell Moore and guests Sam White & Chris Kronner of OPENrestaurant
, Ryan Farr
of 4505 Meats, Leif Hedendal of Cooking with Leif
, and Taylor Boetticher of Fatted Calf
. An open bar will feature drinks from co-sponsors Trumer Pils
, Oliver McCrum Wines
, Pacific Edge Wine & Spirits
, Leopold Bros
., St. Barts Spirit Company
, and Beaune Imports
. Entertainment will include a whole-pig butchery demo.
The party happens on Monday, April 27, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. No tickets
will be sold at the door, and this event is sure to sell out anyway.
To get there on public transit, take the A/C Transit P bus, which stops three blocks away.
