THE BOWERY—If there's one thing we know about good-old-boy label Billy Reid, it's that their Bond Street boutique has never missed an opportunity to break out the Southern food. This weekend, designer Billy Reid himself is in town to cheer on Alabama barbecue joint Jim 'N Nick's for the eighth annual Big Apple Bar-B-Q, so the store decided to take things to the next level. Forget about the fried chicken of yore—they're roasting a whole pig in front of the shop. If you'd like to get in on the porky, saucy action, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 917.675.6107. [Racked Inbox]
