This year for the first time ever, Meatopia comes to San Antonio, for a Texas-sized two day weekend of meat, mirth, and the celebration of animals and the way great chefs prepare them.  Set at  Pearl, one of the country's most ambitious cultural and culinary projects, Meatopia will encompass multiple events in multiple venues, each with their own character and energy.

Meatopia, held annually in New York City, is a world-class culinary event founded and hosted by TIME magazine food columnist and James Beard Award-winning food writer Josh Ozersky.  It has been acclaimed as "a meat-lover's paradise" (New York Magazine), "spectacular" (Esquire), a "bacchanal of pork, beef, lamb, chicken, duck , turkey and quail" (New York Times), and "a glorious city of meat" (Huffington Post). Each year, dozens of world-class chefs cook some of the country's greatest meat over live fires, while live music, cold beer, and aged spirits surround it.
