this week in meat

Posted By on Thu, Sep 9, 2010 at 11:56 PM


+ Wildly popular Winter Park barbecue joint 4 Rivers Smokehouse adds a Winter Garden location at 1047 S. Dillard St., slated for a March 2011 opening. They are miracle workers, to be sure, but with 2,700 square feet of space, separate outdoor seating and a drive-through to wrangle, if they finish on time, we'll eat our hat. (Y'know, that hat we wear all the time, the one made out of 4 Rivers brisket.)

+ If you haven't been reading local blog Your Meat Tooth, you should. Unless you're a vegetarian, because exchanges like this little meet-cute might turn you off:

Charlie: How do you like your meat?

Diane: Sitting in a pool of its own blood.

Of all the moments we’ve shared, this little snippet of conversation, circa our fourth or fifth date, is the one my now-husband, Charlie, pinpoints as the moment he realized we had something special.

Wordsmiths and committed carnivores Charlie and Diane Levine started the site as a labor of meat love, and Your Meat Tooth is an enjoyably obsessive compendium of many things meat, from Beefscape to Steak Out; kind of like trainspotting for steak-lovers.

+ Oh and YAWN, Gaga and her meat bikini on this month's cover of Japanese Vogue: Jana Sterbak did it in 1987, and Carolee Schneemann did it in 1964. Old hat, hat lady.
