Nicky USA, purveyor of meats to every Portland restaurant on your bucket list, has begun ticket sales for its 2013 Wild About Game celebration. Wild About Game is a legendary all-day party, demo hall, booze fest, fifty-course gourmet snackathon, chef's competition, and industry shoulder-rubber. Talk with purveyors of every protein under the sun, as well as farmers, cheese makers, and more (see Nicky's WAG page here). Fill your glass endlessly from top-shelf local distillers, brewers, and winemakers. The price of admission, based on my experience, would be a bargain at twice the price.

Last year's recap with tons of photos.
