Sorry, Tony

Last week we wrote of 24 Below Chef Efrain Cuevas' plans to host a goat dinner where he was to personally slaughter and butcher the goat, and how state officials, the USDA, and the po-po advised against doing so.

As you can see from the video above the goat, who was named Tony, was indeed slaughtered, just not by Cuevas' hand. Instead, he took Tony to Halsted Packing House and had them do the deed. Last night, the goat dinner went ahead, with Tony as the special course.

If you want to find out what else Cuevas has in store, tune into 848 tomorrow morning, where he talks about turduckens. His Thanksgiving allotment just sold out and orders for Christmas are filling fast.
