Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

For the second time, Steuben's decided to welcome the new year with a special, round-the clock celebration that kicked off at opening on December 31 and ended at closing January 1. Last year, the special was chicken and waffles. This round? Pork and eggs.

According to exec chef Matt Selby, seen here walking a pig to the roaster, by the end of the 37-hour extravaganza, Steuben's had gone through fifteen porkers. Soo-eee.

Steuben's brought the pigs in from Pueblo, and ordered the roasters on-line. The Steuben's staff roasted the pigs two at a time in box roasters out on the patio. Cooked, and ready to meet the new year. The final product: pork on a plate.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
