Pig on a Spit Sundays are coming to a much-loved Waterloo pub this summer
Written by

Sunday Roast season might be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean your warm weather weekends shouldn’t include a mighty plate of meat, some trimmings and a few glasses of something spesh to go with it. To that end, the crew at everyone’s favourite taqueria/pub/bottle shop/late-night party spot, the George in Waterloo, are launching Pig on a Spit Sundays.

All summer long, “Taco King” Toby Wilson and his kitchen brigade will cook a whole pig over hot coals for five hours every Sunday before dishing it up on taco platters complete with salsa, salad, beans, tortillas and hot sauce for $25.

Being that this is the bricks-and-mortar HQ for online natty wine slinger DRNKS, minimal-intervention vino is a front and centre part of the affair, with special bottles set to be opened each week. Dane Johns of cult Victorian label Momento Mori is first off the blocks, and he’ll be pouring hits from his line-up of light, bright juice when the event kicks off on Sunday, October 27.

Entry is free, and the pork and wine festivities begin at 2pm each week and last until there’s nothing left. Expect a summer of winemaker takeovers, guest chefs and a monthly edition hosted by the Grifter Brewing Co featuring experimental brews, all to the tunes of Eureka DJs on the ones and twos all arvo long. If that’s not a good excuse to get some pork on your fork, what is?
