The Albany Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy's annual Festival of Meats and Bacon Celebration is this Saturday. We have a pair of tickets and we're giving them away -- maybe to you.
To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:
What's your favorite local meat dish?
It could be a steak you had somewhere, the free range chicken you get from the farmers' market, whatever. We'll draw one comment at random -- that person will get the tickets.
The festival is Saturday at the Elks Lodge on South Allen Street in Albany. Bar opens at 4 pm, dinner at 6 pm. Tickets are $25 per person.
Among the meaty selections this year:
Whole roasted pig
Pulled and chopped pork with a vinegar peppery bbq sauce
Roasted beef steak
Clams two ways
Pork chops wrapped in bacon
Bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeno peppers
Bacon-wrapped chicken bites
Maple, peanut butter, caramel, and bacon ice cream sundaes

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
