brooklyn pigfest 2008 held in dumbo with brooklyn bridge in background

Saturday's thunderstorm ended just in time for Brooklyn Pigfest benefiting the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Beer, BBQ and bluegrass were promised and that's exactly what was delivered, along with an impromptu game of "tip cup".

Those in attendance imbibed, and seemed to enjoy, the many varieties of Brooklyn Brewery beer (open bar was included with admission). The food was plentiful, and though it was PIGfest, the macaroni and cheese was the highlight of our plate, and many others. Cheesy, creamy, with just enough jalapeño...perfection.
