When we noticed a Craigslist ad for waitress applications, it was obvious that one of our fave places to pound Lone Stars, the Hog Pit, was getting a second lease on life. Not in the meatpacking-district space it’ll vacate at the end of the year to make way for a Steve Madden store, but rather, according to the ad, at 37B West 26th Street, which just so happens to be the location of the recently shuttered Black Pearl (right across from Texan compadre Hill Country!). Eater confirms that the BBQ spot is taking over the space — soon-to-be former employees of 2 by 4, here’s your new gig!
