If you have an aversion to swine, look away.
Still on board? Then you might be interested in the first-ever Butchertown Porktoberfest from 5-10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at The Pointe, 1205 East Washington Street.
Here’s a blurb about the event from the Butchertown Neighborhood Association:
This barbeque and pork inspired culinary competition will feature live music by Hog Operation and Johnny Berry, local brew from Apocalypse Brewery and food samples from more than 15 of Louisville’s finest restaurants. …
Participating restaurants include Atria, Cellar Door Chocolates, Decca, Farm to Fork, Harvest, Holy Grale, Jack Knife, Momma’s Pickles Mustard and BBQ, Monkey Wrench, Morels, RYE, St. Charles Exchange, Stellar Sweets, The Bristol and Wiltshire.
Don’t fret, vegheads (I say that term lovingly) — there will be vegetarian options at the event.
Admission is free, but bring some cash to buy samples, proceeds from which will benefit the Butchertown Neighborhood Association.
5-10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11
The Pointe, 1205 East Washington Street
