Even for the most carnivorous of folk, there’s always still something slightly unnerving about staring into the face of a whole pig as it turns and browns on a spit over a fire.
So Halloween is as good a time as any to carry on the old celebratory tradition of a pig roast. That’s the “spooky” part of Varga Bar’s Spooky and Suckling Pig Roast, Saturday, October 27.
For the meat lovers out there, here comes the “suckling” part: the freshest of pork roasted to perfection with a choice of two fabulous seasonal sides.
Choose from sweet yams, orange-cranberry and apple chutney, pecan leek and sausage stuffing with cranberry and sage and sauteed black kale.
They’ll also have a variety of Flying Fish Brewing Company beers on tap to pair with your fall feast. Try either the Exit 16 & 4, the Oktoberfish, the Hopfish or one of the many other surprise tap selections they’ll be slinging.
Come out early or show up later in the evening — it’s an all-day affair in Washington Square West. Be prepared and come in costume if you want to take part in the Good vs. Evil Costume Party going down later in the night.
