Maker’s Mark and Your Local Food Trucks Are Teaming Up For National Pig Day

bourbonYou probably knew this already, but this March 1st has been designated National Pig Day by… I dunno… whoever designates days like that. Well, Maker’s Mark Bourbon is helping celebrate it by teaming up with a number of food trucks across the U.S. to serve one-of-a-kind meals infused with the aforementioned spirit. These dishes will only be around for a limited time (that limited time being, obviously, March 1st), so see if your city is listed, find your favorite food truck and follow them on Twitter to find out where they happen to be when you’re ready to chow down.
