Meat Week

Today started Meat Week in Chicago. Yes, meat week. In case you doubt, their website is The concept? Eat barbecue for eight nights in a row. It started in 2005 in Tallahassee, Florida, and has since spread to cities all over the US and to London. You go, you eat with other BBQ lovers, you post pictures on the website, and you make friends and plan to see each other next year.

Chicago’s “Chapter” goes all over the city. They started this evening at Honey One BBQ, but if you missed it don’t worry; they’ll be back next Sunday. They’re even meeting at 1pm so you don’t have to worry about missing the Super Bowl, because a true meat week fan would never miss a game that features pig skins.
