The weather is warming up, you feel that sweat on your brow. You pulled out your jean cut offs and put them on. You’re feeling like an animal awake, after the long hibernation of winter.

You suddenly are salivating for all the barbecue and meat you’ve missed over the winter. All you want is that open flame, and a sandwich full of pork. Preferably pulled.

Now that the sacred Blue Mondays have long since gone the way of the buffalo (although, anyone notice the buffalo sandwiches comeback?), you’re looking for your next meaty summer event.

Well Loki Lounge is having a porktastic event this Sunday, May 3rd. What better way to welcome the summer with open arms than to eat wonderful pork creations by some of the best connoisseurs this side of the East River (COUGH COUGH ChezJJP COUGH).

I like sections of Pig!

As I mentioned in a previous post, Team Brooklyn Skeptic is going to revitalize the shit out of a Brooklyn school on New York Cares Day. And after a fine day of painting murals and hop scotch courts, organizing libraries and gardening, we’re going to get down with our bad selves at the after party.

You want to get involved? Great. There are two choices.

1. Join Brooklyn Skeptic! We cordially invite all of our readers and friends to join us as we give a little back to our fine borough after consistently ripping it a new one.

Okay, back to the irony!

For those who like to get black out drunk on Sundays, swing by Red Hook this weekend for the Brooklyn Bourbon Festival. From noon until nine this Sunday at LeNell’s (416 Van Brunt St.) the bourbon will flow for free. Also, apparently you can buy six American bottles of whiskey for 10% off. Drink up!
