The first weekend of November is going to be a meat-filled affair along the Austin-San Antonio corridor. Texas Monthly holds its annual (sold-out) barbecue festival on Nov. 3 at the Long Center. The same day, national food writer Josh Ozersky brings his “Meatopia” event to the Pearl Brewery in San Antonio.
The inaugural San Antonio event features 32 chefs from around the state and country. Some of Austin’s biggest chefs — Paul Qui (Qui), Rene Ortiz and Laura Sawicki (formerly of La Condesa and Sway), Ned Elliot (Foreign & Domestic), Jesse Griffiths (Dai Due), Josh Watkins (the Carillon ) and Ben Runkle and Bryan Butler (Salt & Time) – will be on hand for the event that the New York Times has called “a bacchanal of pork, beef, lamb, chicken, duck, turkey and quail.”
