The Balcony is well known for the vast quantities of the aphrodisiacal bivalve mollusc consumed during its ‘oyster fests’, so perhaps a natural extension of this theme is the upcoming pork fest.
The Pork-A-Palooza, as the event has been named, references the antiquated term lollapalooza meaning an extraordinary instance, thing, or event (it was revived in 1991 as the name of a US music festival). So named, you’d have to expect our local pork festival would provide you with an extraordinary opportunity to indulge in pork-related activities, as well as porcine puns, and in fact it seems this is just what internationally awarded chef Sean Connolly and the team at Balcony Bar & Oyster Co have in mind.
‘Expect a month-long celebration of all things piggy bringing the ultimate Pork-A-Fair to Byron Bay,’ they say. ‘With a porked-out food menu, swiney swigs and weekly specials you can be eased into winter with indulgence.
‘Get high on the hog with rib nights racked for messy goodness.’
And if you thought you couldn’t get much higher than that, you could always take it to the next level with a secret ingredient: Coke. Yes, the bubbly brown liquid is utilised every Thursday night, from 6pm, when you can ‘enjoy tender ribs glazed in Coca-Cola barbecue sauce. You will be talking racks for days!’, they say.
‘Now it’s not for everyone but it’s certainly enjoyed by others: whole suckling pig will be available for the month of June. Swine & Dine up at Balcony Bar & Oyster Co enjoying a feast among friends and a story to squeal all the way home about.’
Pork-A-Palooza: at The Balcony 3 June till 30 June.
Bookings recommended to avoid disappointment.
