Porcfest 2011 Series — What delicious eats we have!

Bigger, and better. This is what the Porcupine Freedom Festival has done each year since it began. If you decide to come on down this year (and please do!), be sure to check out many of these entrepreneurial culinary vendors who have come together to cater to all of our unique wants and desires.

When it comes to eats, we all know that George Mandrik Skouras will be whipping together amazing Greek-inspired creations such as the Greek cheese sandwich (he’d better make this one this year!), his famous baklava, and the newly-developed Trainwreck sandwich of ultimate bacon proportions! While it will take much coaxing for this pescetarian to consume any bacon, I bet this sandwich will become the new staple sandwich of Porcfest among bacon-lovers!

While I love me some fried, cheesy, and high-calorie goodies, I was really excited to hear about the healthier selections – this includes many vegan and vegetarian options for those who may love their fellow piglet friends a little too much to consume the wildly tempting(and low-carb;) Trainwreck.

Mimi Bobekunin’s The Stone, is an eatery offering food ranging from American, Italian, vegan, and vegetarian! You will find it inside the Jazz Hall at Roger’s, so please stop by for something delicious; if you find you’ve got a craving, come and satisfy it with a meal, a drink, or perhaps a dessert! To the right we have The Stone’s Poached Strawberries, Peaches, and Mango over Crushed Ice. Can we say – perfect for a hot summer’s day, or what!?

Another healthy option that caught my eye was The Salad Station! Andrew Meininger felt a healthy eating option was missing at previous Porcfests; to change this, he created The Salad Station. Offered at this tasty vendor is side, or dinner-sized salads, and 20 deliciously fresh toppings to choose from!

Hopefully soon, we will see a sample menu from these fine folks!

Stacy Litz has got me intrigued with her holistic health products that she will be offering, and as a huge fan of essential oils (great for aromatherapy, skin care, meditation, and more), I will be sure to check out what she has to offer. Want a tarot card reading? She’s got you covered! Oh, and if you find your tummy rumbling while at her site, try one of her homemade sandwiches! I must also commend her on her excellent template choice for her blog (yeah, we’ve got the same one…)!

If you’d like to get a little crazy at Porcfest, Delia Dubois will be serving up some not “your mama’s” boring old jello shots in the later hours! I’m excited to find out what flavour combos she’s got brewing!

These agorist food vendors are only some of the food options available at this year’s Porcfest! Check back to the Porcfest Vendor Page for updated information on menus and more!


What am I excited for?

For those who know me, you all know I’m a fan of summer. I love going around in nothing but a bikini, short shorts, and flip flops; you can find me spending tremendous amounts of time in the sun, getting splashed with water guns, and enjoying a drink or two by the campfire. While the summers spent here in Ottawa, Canada are lovely, you can be sure I will be getting to at least several debates that involve me trying to defend my anarchist beliefs, and convince others that I am not the cold-hearted snake anarchists and libertarians are often made out to be.

What if I told you there is a place to enjoy all of these things with others who also believe in liberty? At The Porcupine Freedom Festival, which happens from June 20th to 26th at Roger’s Campground in Lancaster New Hampshire, you can enjoy these simple pleasures, and more. With a full week of events planned, there is something for everyone at Porcfest.

Families, couples, and single people can expect to enjoy a myriad of events that include dabbling into your creative side at the craft tables, organized family hikes, learning the what and the how of firearm etiquette, the chance to marry your loved one at a state-free wedding ceremony, and getting your dance on at Buzz’s BIGGER Gay Dance Party, not to mention, all of George’s Famous Baklava that everyone will be consuming! Yes, that’s right! I said baklava. And these events are just the tip of the iceberg. The Porcupine Freedom festival has everything you need to enjoy time with friends and family, get your party on, and learn more about liberty and the liberty community.

What do I plan on checking out?

Since there are so many fun things going on, I’ll have to pick and choose (I guess we can say this is the one and only downfall of Porcfest — it is simply impossible to check out everything!), but I know I’ll definitely be checking out some of the speakers, who will be giving talks on topics ranging from their experiences as liberty activists, to different possible topics such as the use of nuclear weapons.

I will definitely be getting my groove on at Buzz’s BIGGER Gay Dance Party, checking out Tarrin Lupo’s Pirate Party (Arrrr!), sitting in and watching Ian Freeman and Mark Edge host the nationally syndicated talk radio show Free Talk Live, participating in the game of Humans versus Zombies, and many other events, while most likely partaking in the consumption of several alcoholic beverages. I have never been more excited for an event before in my life!

You can catch me at Porcfest; I will be manning the Silent Auction for certain shifts(if you are interested in donating an item to the auction that you feel would be an item of interest to the liberty community, please respond below), and other than that I’ll be frolicking about Roger’s Campground and finally meeting others who feel the same way I do about liberty!
