Well, this is just the icing on the meatcake. A Rebours shuts down, and now, Forster's Meats will be joining them for the foreseeable future. At least at the retail level. Can an Oscar nomination for Jessica Alba or the Apocalypse Itself be far behind?
Forster's Meats in Plymouth will be closing on 20 September, due to their rent nearly tripling. Get your andouille, tasso, tri-tip, jerky, and cold-smoked ribeyes while you can, campers.
They will apparently be re-opening a wholesale/catering operation in New Hope (good for me, as getting to Plymouth from Saint Paul is such a treat, anyway. Oh. Wait.) at an uncertain date, and the gent that I spoke with alluded to the possibility of phoning an order in for pickup. But they are still sorting this out. Perhaps the more 'hounding they get, the more they'll be inclined to make arrangements for non-wholesale quantity sales?
I'm going to go and cry in my chicken-andouille gumbo, now.
