Meatopia 2012

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Meatopia 2012 has come and gone and while it was a crazy weather day, it was full of fantastic food, delicious cocktails and rain! Rain?! New Yorkers love their meat (and booze) and it wont stop them from getting the full experience that is Meatopia. Tornado warnings notwithstanding, we partied on.

And we ate well. Mmm hmm.

See how we managed to go through it all! Meatopia 2012 Survivor Tips

Meatopia 2012 is always something i look forward to each year. Of course - a girl could only eat so much (hah! but that is good!). I look forward to doing it all over again. There are some booths that I didn't get to visit, and my friend @Roxwriting was happy to chomp on the others I didn't get a chance to do so. Find her at Spam is Better Fried.

Well done, Josh and the entire team of Meatopia! And no, I'm not ordering steak. ;) 

I look forward to MEATing you, next year. *aaaaw*
