|The entrance to Pier 5|
"Which Chefs and Which Animals were available at the 2nd incarnation of MEATOPIA?" you ask? So glad you did! Close to 50 Teams were collected. From traveling BBQ Squads, to World Famous Celeb TV Chefs to High End NYC Restaurant Crews pumping out succulent morsels for the 5 hour event, set on the East River, overlooking NY Harbor. Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park was the perfect setting for the 2nd year of Meatopia(2010 was set up on Governor's Island, just a stone's throw across the water) Although the festival was set for the majority of the public to enter at 5:30pm and continue til the gut-bustingly generous hour of 9:30, the sun was blazing but heat-be-damned, we plowed through and enjoyed the offerings.
