My friend Joel hosted his annual Meatluck this past weekend. His meatluck parties are always a bonanza of an evening, and any meat-lover and first-rate carnivore will find themselves in Heaven for just one night. The rules? Simple. Bring a dish that contains meat in it, no matter what course you're assigned. Yes, even dessert.
I've been to the previous two Meatlucks (you can read about them here and here). The dishes and the course you're assigned may always be different. But you're always guaranteed the same thing: fantastic, creative foods, LOTS of food, flowing wine, great company amongst fabulous friends, old and new, and a wicked meat hangover the next day.
