FiPS readers! The time has finally come to squeeze into your best pair of tight jeans & lace up your ass-kicking boots. Come August 18th on the late, great Patrick Swayze's birthday, Pork Slope, the ridiculously-named bar, partially inspired by the 1989 film Road House, will finally open its doors for business (hopefully you've been preparing by growing out a sweet-ass mullet over the past few months).
As mentioned when we first broke the news back on April Fools Day, Pork Slope is the newest venture from Dale Talde, David Massoni and John Bush, AKA the Talde crew. A casual bar designed in the spirit of bars that they'd want to hang out in, it will include pitchers of beer, a pool table & a decidedly pork-laden menu of bar food.
Since we love you guys and want you to be as cool as humanly possible, we've put together a lil' contest that will grant TWO lucky FiPS readers a ticket (and one for a guest!) into Pork Slope's August 15th pre-opening party. If you recall from our initial announcement about the place, they're planning on making said party a raucous event wherein at least one person will head off into the night in a squad car. After all, that's how Swayze would’ve wanted it.
Here's the deal: inside Pork Slope, there'll be two glamorous, stuffed boars' heads [pictured above] adorning the walls. All you have to do is suggest names for these amazingly-snouted creatures. If the Talde dudes like one of your suggestions enough, they will officially name the boar after it, and you & a guest will be invited to attend the August 15th pre-opening party. We'll be announcing the winners on Monday the 13th, so you have until midnight on Friday, August 10th to get your suggestions in.
TWO QUICK CAVEATS:
- You can only submit one name per boar (two total). If you drop a comment with any more than two names you won't be considered.
- The winner will be contacted via the email address connected with the Commenter ID (so no need to provide your contact info in the comment).
Get to it, FiPSTERS! Sound off below in the comments with your best boar monikers. To get you warmed up, I'll give you my suggestions:
