So in case you haven’t heard, on Sunday, September 28, some of Richmond’s best chefs and bartenders will be assembling at Historic Scotchtown in Hanover County to cook local meats and veggies over an open fire, and to share drinks, local wines and beers with what I’m sure will be an appreciative crowd. At Beast Feast 2014, Belmont Butchery celebrates its eighth year (and is selling tickets for the event at the shop), and chefs from Rogue Gentleman, Aziza on Main, The Magpie, Julep’s, The Whole Ox Butchery of The Plains and even the Governor’s Mansion and the Federal Reserve Bank will be on hand to cook up a one-of-a-kind meal. Prepare yourself for whole goats, pigs and possibly more cooked to perfection in Patrick Henry’s backyards, with proceeds from the event going to support upkeep and educational programs at Scotchtown.
If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, you might want to do so sooner rather than later. Get them here. At $50 for general admission and $80 for VIP early access, they just may sell out.

Those interested in volunteering can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I, for one, can’t wait to see what the chefs and bartenders have in store!
