Lots of excited men circling dead pigs on a beautiful island? Yes, Pig Island (Sept. 10th, 11:30am-5pm) is basically like Lord of Flies, but with more beer. The lineup of chefs cooking at Governors Island this year is pretty damn impressive, with 80 pigs (all sourced from the Finger Lakes area) being prepared by the likes of:

Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo
Ethan Smith of Hecho en Dumbo
Ryan Angulo of Buttermilk Channel
Adam Schop of Nuela
Andy Yang of Rhong-Tiam
John Stage of Dinosaur BBQ
Michael Jenkins of The Darby

Plus many more! The brews will be provided by Sixpoint and the wine by Brooklyn Oenology. Fancy-pants knife-maker Wüsthof will be there hosting a giveaway and knife skills demo, while Michael Colameco of Colameco’s Food Show will be on-hand to host the entire affair. Buy your tickets by Saturday and you’ll be able to chow down on all the pork products you want for $60.
