Pig Island 2012- Governors Island NYC

Pig Island happens every summer here in NYC on Governor's Island, which used to be a naval academy and private government island thing( I hope I got my facts strait). The Island was opened to the public 4-5 years ago. It is an incredible place that you can bike around and explore old buildings and such. It is just a free ferry ride away, And if you bring a bike you board the ferry first! They have food carts there every weekend but once a year all of the pork lovers of the city gather on the island to feast on New York's best pork restaurants. And did I mention they have unlimited Six Point Beer? Yes it is amazing and I am already itching for next year's Pig Island.

I have a major sweet tooth so my favorite was the bacon cookie
