Butcher & Larder and The Southern Team Up for a Pig Roast

2011_11_4_the_southern.jpg The combination of those two joints is music to our ears. Head to The Southern from 2-6 p.m. tomorrow for the last pig roast with good (hopefully) weather of 2011. A special treat for fans of John Manion (formerly at Branch 27, now chef-in-residence at The Southern) - he'll be preparing the pigs, along with Rob Levitt of Butcher & Larder.

For $40, you get "as much swine, sides and Shiner Bock as you'd like." Not a bad deal. Buy your tickets online now.

By the way - if you want to get decked out for the occasion, The Butcher & Larder is now selling T-shirts. Wear them while eating BBQ and the world just might combust.

The Southern is located at 1840 W. North Ave.
