Is this a paid advertisement?

Sounds good but kind of expensive at $70.00 per adult & $30.00 per child under 12.

The again, the unlimited beer helps to offset the adult pricing structure.

Without eating like a pig, one can just consume so much...or else you pay the extra price later.

I love the smell of roast pig but I cannot partake in any of its kind...rats.

My friends who are Reformed enjoy bacon, pancetta, pizza, lobster & cheeseburgers.

They are the truly fortunate ones.

I too enjoy partaking in the flesh of the pig & have since given up my faith for certain gastronomic indulgences.

In America, barbecue is king & to enjoy porcine pleasures is part of the assimilation process.

I'm not a vegetarian, for sure, but this description of the JOY in the death and dismemberment of an animal strikes me as obscene.
Sure, we eat animals, but we take no pleasure in their deaths. Enjoying so enthusiastically in death and destruction is disgusting.
Teaching children to take pleasure in killing is not emotionally healthy.

The pig is already dead & cooked whole...no butchering involved as the meat just falls off the bones! And the skin is crackly!

Generations of Hawaiians can't be wrong...along with rampant aficionados of 'pulled pork'...as all this takes is a pork shoulder or butt.

Some people wonder why they never get invited to parties anymore.
