From Victor Steinbok, this announcement of a food event in Brooklyn last October:

In the portmantradition of Shirtoberfest (here) and Snow(c)tober (here).

The text:

From 9pm-Midnight on October 17th Betto will host a FREE “Goatoberfest” goat roast, with free bubbles from Skurnik wine and free beer from Brooklyn Brewery. It’s in support of Heritage Food USA’s “No Goat Left Behind” initiative which is a project intended to introduce goat as a viable meat product in the US while simultaneously aiding dairy farms that have little need for male goats, and as a result are being sold into the commodity market or killed at birth. They are working with 15 local family farmers to bring goat into homes and restaurants across the nation.

We will be presenting Whole Roasted Goat, served with Grilled Flatbread, and an assortment of Condiments and Pickles, along with some other light snacky stuff.

[After this, you might not want to think too closely about “No Child Left Behind”.]

Other meaty Octobers: 2011 Porktober at Hickory Field Farm (here), and a whole generally meaty month:

Pair cured smoke sticks with king-hunter sausage and a 4-inch hunter mini sausage on game day or every day throughout the month of Meatober. (link)
