Squee! Oink, oink!

Pork, Frysmith fries and beer. Loosen your belt or wear your fat pants to this National Pig Day celebration with Cast Iron Gourmet and Frysmith at The Black Boar in Eagle Rock. Cast Iron Gourmet chef/owner Rashida Purifoy, whom I first met at Artisanal LA where I fell in love with her Couch Mix, gave me a sneak peek of what she’ll be serving up at this oink fest. “We have some great ‘mash-up’ dishes in store; a double bacon mushroom gravy poutine and a McPig sandwich, which is beer braised pork belly served with handmade BBQ, pickles and onions on a fresh French roll with a side of sweet potato fries and other porky finds.” She also said something about chorizo chili fries as well as chicharrón fries. Oink, oink! Everything will be under $10.

Budget bingers will also appreciate the Black Boar’s happy hour on tap beers and well drinks from 5-8pm and then 11pm-12am. There will even be a special “pig themed” drink for the occasion. Wonder if it involves bacon-washed bourbon? Hmmm.
