Meatopia is almost here San Antonio! The two-day festival, running from November 2-3, will celebrate great Texas meats Pearl Brewery. Although it was originally founded by food writer Josh Ozersky as a New York City food event, Meatopia will celebrate its tenth year in the Lonestar state. Carnivorous attendees can expect great beef, as well as “pork, veal, chicken, duck, quail, bison, and many other animals,from snout to tail.”
Meatopia Day 1 passes have sold out, but Day 2 passes are still up for grabs! On Sunday, Nov 3, Meatopia will feature 33 of the best chefs in the country and their culinary creations, including San Antonio’s Jesse Perez of Arcade, Andrew Weissman of Il Sogno, Tim Rattray of The Granary, Geronimo Lopez of NAO, Johnny Hernandez of La Gloria, and Jason Dady of Two Bros BBQ.
Meatopia Tickets are usually $75 each, but stop by the Meatopia stand at the Pearl Brewery Farmer's Market on Saturday, October 19 for tickets at $50 per person! I'm looking forward to meeting the chefs, and even more enthused for a day dedicated to some of the best BBQ in the country. Hope to see you there, Happy Eating!
