Oh the meat, oh the glory, oh Meatopia. Oofah. Anyone else still full?
This year’s epic day of meat consumption came to a close this past Saturday night on Randall’s Island. Despite tornado warnings, suffocating humidity, and occasional downpours, thousands attended Meatopia with a fierce appetite for all things MEATY. The carnivores of New York channeled their caveman ancestors as they scoured the fields for the best tasting animal. They drank beer between bites and took naps in the shade to re-boot. They got muddy when it rained and warmed up in the whiskey tent. They ate meat off a bone handed to them by Marc Forgione. They munched on LaFrieda 120-day aged tomahawk strips and played with pig heads with April Bloomfield. Yes, this was Meatopia. And yes, it was indeed a carnivore’s utopia.
