Meatopia 2012

For me, Meatopia conjurs up thoughts of delicious morsels of slow cooked seasoned meats, filled with succulent juices, served up by smiling chefs just happy to be out of their confined the sun and the fresh air of a NYC park. My 3rd trip to Meatopia did NOT disappoint. MC Josh Ozersky and all involved in the production hit another home run.
The beautiful pasture of Randall's Island was a great spot(despite a short interruption by heavy rains)...The hardcores didn't let it spoil their day and the show went on. I will leave you with a sampling of the food that was available at Meatopia 2012(There was A LOT)
What else can I say but Viva La Carne!
