Governors Island Will Become Pig Island on October 2
Jimmy Carbone, proprietor of Jimmy's No. 43 and Craft Beer proselytizer, is going to be busy next week. In addition to hosting a number of Craft Beer Week events, he's gearing up for Pig Island, the pork and beer blow-out he's presiding over on Governors Island on Saturday, October 2. The event will feature 60 pigs from local farms and 20 chefs and farmers, as well as free-flowing libations from New York State wineries and Sixpoint Craft Ales. There are still tickets available through the Pig Island website; you can whet your appetite by taking a look at the menu after the jump.
