Pig & Whiskey

Dontae Rockymore
Fri., 7/19-Sun., 7/21 Pig & Whiskey @ Downtown Ferndale BBQ We’ve all heard the saying “everything is better slathered in BBQ sauce and/or whiskey.” OK — so technically it’s not a popular saying, but Metro Times’ annual celebration of live music, barbecue, and booze is returning for a sticky ’n’ sweet, meat-filled weekend. Pig & Whiskey returns to downtown Ferndale for three days offering more than 20 food vendors ranging from classic barbecue to sweet treats, as well as more than 70 liquors, beers, cocktails, and hard ciders and spritzers. This year will also see the return of the top-shelf tent for those with more expensive tastes. To whet your appetite even further, this year’s musical lineup includes Verve Pipe, Laith Al-Saadi, Electric Six, Stone Clover, Tart, and Michigan Rattlers. (See our feature with the band this week.) Oh yeah, admission to Pig & Whiskey is free. Don’t forget to tip your bartenders.
