The Piggies: The Best Things I Ate During the 2017 College Football Season - Sports Illustrated

I considered writing an end-of-season awards column that looked back on the finest moments of the football season that just ended. But everyone does that. What I haven’t done yet is taken a look back at all the calories I consumed over a football season. That needs to be rectified, so today in Punt, Pass & Pork we’re going to hand out the Piggies.

These awards will honor the best things I ate all season. For official purposes, we’re going to define the college football season as “anything between the day I left the house for the trip that included SEC Media Days and the national title game.” Why not stretch back into the spring so we can encompass the entire year? Because the Offseason Piggies sure sounds like a column I could write in July. I’m franchise building here.

So without further ado, let’s hand out the Piggies for the 2017 college football season.

Minero Settles Into New Digs - Post and Courier

Minero 2.0 is undeniably bigger. Its seating capacity has doubled to 90, including a significant number of seats at the bar. While it perhaps surrendered a smidge of charm with the expansion, the restaurant was ready to grow: From the start, its bar has produced excellent cocktails, but the crowds kept most people from considering Minero as a place to drop by for a drink. And I always had to remember to mention peak time lines when sending visitors and locals to Minero, the only Sean Brock restaurant in the world where two people can dine for 30 bucks (Minero currently has two locations: There’s also an outlet in Atlanta’s Ponce City Market.)

And then we’ll share the monster Minero burrito — crema and hoppin’ john spilling down our chins just like the wedding cake we smashed into each other’s faces all those years ago.
