As you may remember from their highly effective (so effective it was ripped off by Stacked pancake house) marketing technique, Arrogant Swine is (or was) one of the only barbeque joints in town. Now, a formerly defunct BBQ/biker bar called Hog Heaven is re-opening–which means Arrogant Swine is going to have a little “friendly” competition on its hands.
The unlikely proprietor, Dillinger Peekel, a 41-year-old from Macon, Georgia, has never worked on a farm in his life, though he has owned one. “I used to have a 3,000 acre property with all manner of critters on it. I decided to sell it to come on up to En Why Cee though. Now here I am, ownin’ property yet again. I guess you could say I was born to be a property owner.”
When asked what made him decide to re-open Hog Heaven, which was closed for reasons of unsanitary practices (this is what happens when you offend the kosher Jews), Peekel explained, “I don’t rightly like the idea of ‘hipsterified barbeque’ practices. Arrogant Swine is makin’ a mockery of what tried and true bona fide Southern BBQ is. And I intend to right that wrong.” Hog Heaven re-enters Bushwick consciousness this Friday, March 27th, just in time to quench your weekend thirst for a meat-flavored Bloody Mary.
