Brooklyn Paper: Pig Out: On May 12, you’ll definitely want to hoof it over to Empire–Fulton Ferry State Park for the seventh annual Brooklyn Pigfest. Starting at 1 pm, the park will go barnyard with four expert barbeque teams, a trough’s worth of Brooklyn Brewery suds, and a performance by local bluegrass six-piece, the Cobble Hillbillies. “We start cooking on Friday morning,” said Waterfront Alehouse owner Sam Barbieri. “It takes about 22 hours to cook the whole pig, but it’s good practice for future competitions.”
Location: Tobacco Warehouse, Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park located at Water and Dock Street in DUMBO.
Time: Saturday 5/12 1 – 6 PM. Tix are $75 in advance at $85 walkup. More info at Brooklyn Brewery website.
