Did you mean to buy that ticket for Sunday's whole-hog culinary competition Cochon 555 and it slipped your mind? Or did you have to wait 'til payday to scoop up that ticket? Bummer, because it's sold out.
But there's still a chance to join in some of the piggy revelry. Tickets are still available for Saturday's "Large Format Feast" on Saturday, February 28. It's a four-course dinner (including wine), by Burch chef Daniel Del Prado, featuring family-farm-raised, antibiotic-free Duroc Pork and Black Angus Beef.
So why is a steakhouse rolling out the dinner for the nation's porkiest event?
It's by design. Cochon chooses steakhouse chefs who feature heritage-breed pork on their steakhouse menus.
There's still one chance to attend Sunday's main event at the Loews Hotel: Enter the contest to win a guest judge spot next to Andrew Zimmern. All you gotta do is enter the name of a heritage breed pig that you like and why you like it. One lucky winner will be chosen.
Hint: Bacon is not a breed.
