Three Little Pigs Charcuterie & Salumi Awarded Grant to “improve our facility and expand our services”

5111 Georgia Ave, NW

The folks at Three Little Pigs tell me the grant will allow them to offer more classes, more fresh cuts of meat, and more variety of local dairy. Awesome. For folks not familiar with Three Little Pigs, you’re missing out – just check out today’s lunch options:

1. TLP prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato, basil, & olive oil on foccacia

2. BBQ pulled pork & creamy coleslaw on a jalapeno cheddar bun

3. Smoked pork loin, pickles, mayo, onion mustard, & gruyere panini

  • I LOVE THREE LITTLE PIGS. They have the best sandwiches in the city. Hands down.

  • I’ve only had the pulled pork sandwich, but I LOVED it! Good for them!

    I liked these guys, but they were excrutiatingly inefficient the couple times I stopped in. I really appreciated the level of detail and interaction they provided each customer, but when it’s creating a line out the door you need to learn to limit it to a degree. Hopefully this extra $ allows them to hire more staff so that they can have someone on hand to go over products and someone else to actually service those who know what they want.

    • Please don’t use “service” where you mean “serve”. “Service” as a verb is what a stud dog does for a lady dog in heat.

      Metro, this applies to you, too. I don’t want to think about trains servicing my platform.

        Check Merriam Webster and then come back.

        • Based on MW, “serve” would be a better word choice on this case, although “service” is not technically incorrect.

        • Dictionaries no longer exist provide the correct use of words. They serve (see what I did there?) to explain what the hell some idiot is talking about. The inclusion of a word or a certain use of a word does not establish its legitimacy.

          For example, all dictionaries now include “loan” as a verb. And we all know how stupid THAT is!

            If you needed a dictionary to help you figure out what people on the internet are talking about then maybe you should post less and read more.

          • You’re the one who used “service” as a verb in the wrong context, so it’s pretty rich that you’re suggesting someone else needs to brush up on their language skills. Do yourself a favor and take your own advice. I suggest reading things that are written in English, instead of internet-argot.

            As has already been pointed out it’s not the wrong context, you just prefer another word over it.

  • A “grant” to a private business to produce more charcuterie? Where’s Madame DeFarge when you need her?

    • I have a feeling that Matthew Lesko must have stopped in for a pound of sliced ham, and the rest is history.

  • Three Little Pigs is awesome. I’m most excited about the “fresh cuts of meat” part. You can only have so much special ham, etc. for a charcuterie plate, but I’d be there almost every week if it means I can get any cut of fresh pork from there rather than overpriced and not as local whole foods.

  • Great news! The owners are friendly and really want to do their part in the revitalization of their portion of GA Ave. Also, the biltong is fantastic.

    • A grant from whom? Could we please know more? (Like – are my tax dollars being given to a private business?)

      • Yes, your tax dollars are being serviced. Just kidding, I have no clue, and this place is awesome — take my money!

      • generally speaking, yes, your tax dollars sometimes go to private business. both fed and dc.
        and until the tea partiers take control, they always will.

  • I’m so happy for them. They’re the only place I can get tasso.

  • Rumor has it, it’s a grant from Walmart. Any truth to it?
