Party with the pig

Every Friday afternoon at 3:00, a lucky employee of Boondocks Grille and Drafthouse dons the pink pig costume and walks proudly to the shoulder of US 1 to attract customers, especially tourists rushing through on their way to Key West. Thus begins the Party On The Patio, a weekly 3 hour celebration marking the end of another strenuous work week here in paradise.

For $10, you get a huge plate of fresh pulled pork (sometimes also pork tenderloin skewers and red snapper filets), baked beans, potato salad and cole slaw, and all the beer you can drink. Despite the all-you-can-drink label, it doesn't degenerate into a frat party, instead it's just a fun place to gather and start the weekend off right.

Great service, great food, and walking distance to my house.

I haven't missed one yet.

So you're saying if I ever make it down there, I need to be in your neck of the woods by 3 on Friday?

I feel for the guy/gal in the pig suit. I was the Easter bunny once...never again!
