Fall means it's time for a good old fashioned pig roast at our favorite place ITP (inside the Atlanta perimeter) - Local Three. We'll soon be spending the afternoon out on the patio at the annual “Roast a Fatty” pig pickin’ party. Chefs Hall and Muss slow roast a home-grown hog from Gum Creek Farms south of Atlanta. They'll be using a roaster that I’ve only seen at their roasts, it's called the La Caja China Roasting Box. The aromas coming out of that box are delectable and the unveiling of the finished fatty is quite the spectacle. Camera's flash, the crowd of hungry guests "ooh" and "aah", and we all await the first taste of the roasted pork goodness.

The Local Three staff also whips up a load of the delicious sides and feature a smooth Bourbon like Belle Meade. Their bourbon is an old family recipe that was developed during prohibition in the '20s. It was so....good! If you like Bourbon, this is the event for you!
And to top it all off, everyone receives a commemorative “Roast a Fatty” T-shirt….love the logo on the T-shirt from the first event, see the design below. We’ll see y’all out on the patio real soon…November 6th....y'all join us! Cheers!
