Win Cochon 555 Tickets!

Cochon 555, the pork-tastic party that features five local chefs preparing five heritage breed pigs, is heading back to DC May 2, and Metrocurean is pleased to offer two VIP tickets to one lucky winner. Comment on this post by Thursday, April 22 at 10 a.m., and I'll choose one winner at random. Check back Thursday afternoon to see if you've won.

Here's the essentials on the piggy event (where I'll be a judge!), presented by Taste Network:

Cochon 555 will take place Sunday, May 2 at 5 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton (1150 22nd St. NW). Five chefs — R.J. Cooper of Vidalia, Joe Palma of Westend Bistro, Daniel Singhofen of Eola, Nicholas Stefanelli of Bibiana, and David Varley of Bourbon Steak — will each prepare a heritage breed pig from head to toe. Five family-owned wineries will showcase their wines.

Guests will sample the chefs' creations and, along with the judges, determine a winner. The event promotes heritage pigs and breed diversity in local and national communities.

Tickets are $125 per person ($175 for VIP). For tickets and info visit www.cochon555.com.

Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.

Homer: I’ll have the smiley face breakfast special. Uhh, but could you add a bacon nose? Plus bacon hair, bacon mustache, five o’clock shadow made of bacon bits and a bacon body.
Waitress: How about I just shove a pig down your throat?
(Homer looks excited)
Waitress: I was kidding.
Homer: Fine, but the bacon man lives in a bacon house!
Waitress: No he doesn’t!

I come from the land of the other white meat, North Carolina, so I appreciate fine BBQ and pork in all forms.
Please choose me and my husband! Our third anniversary is this Wed. and this would be a wonderful belated gift - he loves pork too, though he's partial to the mustard-based BBQ sauce found in South Carolina and it's a big problem in our relationship.
Pretty please?

Steve said...

"I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don’t have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it’s good for me, it’s the perfect way to start the day.”

Pork fat rules!!! Also, my word verification for this post is "macon" Is that a sign?!? I sure hope so.
