Thieves Once Stole A Roasted Pig Head From Sonoma

Welcome to Eater's latest feature, Shit People Steal, in which we ask restaurateurs what items in their restaurant have been (or are frequently) stolen.

sonoma-260.jpgThis time on Shit People Steal, yet another tale of pig theft — although this time we're talking real pigs! But still not real, live pigs. Amanda Earley, manger of Capitol Hill's Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, tells the twisted tale of one of the more gruesome restaurant thefts. Take it away, Amanda:

"Sonoma was hosting a halloween party, and we had done a roasted pig. Part of the display was the pig head, with the apple in the mouth and all. The head was detached, and was for decorative purposes. At some point of the evening, someone walked off with the pig head."
