If you're planning to hit Meatopia this year and haven't started training, you might want to watch this new promotional video to see what you're in for. (Fair warning: The song is going to get stuck in your head.) It's going to take some serious stomach-stretching if any mere mortal hopes to make room for whole sheep from Seamus Mullen, April Bloomfield's barbecued whole hog, and the 850-pound steer — evidently a buffalo could not be procured — that will be roasted for the cause, not to mention the rest of the over-the-top-meaty menu that you can see here. This year's event takes place in the evening, July 23 at 5:30 p.m. to be exact. See the video below, and find details and tickets at Meatopia.org.
