Bunganut Pig (Franklin)

   Sorry for the lapse!  My incredibly awesome weekend got in the way.  Starting Friday night, it was a whirlwind of excitement.  Sarina and I kicked off the weekend by going to see our friend Hannah (band: 10th Floor) perform at the Bunganut Pig in Franklin.  We had decided to dress up 80's, because..... well, why the hell not?  In full 80's glory, Sarina and I had dinner at Bombay Bistro before heading down to the Pig which is an little, practically underground, hole in the wall bar.  My parents use to take me and my brother there when we were little.  Why did they take their very young children to a bar?  I don't know.  But we loved it.  We thought we were fucking rock stars getting to eat in a place that you had to walk down stairs to get into.  (We were weird kids.)

   Obviously the first thing we did when we got there was order a drink.  We got Hog Wilds.  Some ultra girly fruity delicious thing of vodka, melon, pineapple, cranberry and 7Up.
   Under the shooter section there was something called the Red Headed Pig  that was Jager, Peach schnapps, and Cranberry.  It is usually called a Red Headed Slut.  I've had a red headed slut and I do not remember it tasting like this.  However, the person who made it for me was also very drunk... she sometimes just makes shit up with whatever is around when she is drinking.  It is actually very amusing but definitely hit and miss.  You never know what you will get.  But I digress.  Right, so that combo sounded both revolting and intriguing.  I couldn't resist and had to try it.  Surprisingly tasty.  The flavor was very holiday-ish for me.  Fruity cranberry with a hint of herbaly, spicy licorice.  The balance was just right which is the key with this.  I feel like all hell could go wrong with different proportions of the jager, peach, and cranberry.
I thought "shooter" meant shot... I think I was wrong.  Look at that thing!

   Many nights of the week, there is live music.  And if you love drunk middle-aged people as much as I do, you will have a blast at the  Bunganut Pig!  Also, if you see 10th Floor on any listings, go see them!  They are really good.
