Of all the atrocities those Lord of the Flies kids committed, it turns out the worst was staking the pig head -- apparently you can totally eat those things! Not convinced? Convinced, but pathetically unable to capture your own pig with homemade traps and spears? Then head to The Sample Room, where they've just unleashed the Half Pig's Head Smorgasbord, a for-two (or more), bisected hog dome for just $18. Lest you be daunted by the prospect of tearing in, steady yourself with the following knowledge:
The head comes with a plate of house-pickled red onions, eggs, and dijon, which work to break up the rich flavors, but if you're going to do it right, order the optional Booker's/ Blanton’s/Basil Hayden bourbons in a flight, which any fan of that savage book knows will be more pleasant than a fight.
