Chad Bush Talks First Ever Pig Week Fort Lauderdale

As many people in the South Florida community already know, the Pig Dances that are thrown each month at Ramrod in Fort Lauderdale have been very big successes -- so much so, in fact, that the bar regularly reaches capacity and the outside has to be turned into a makeshift bar and party spot for all the people wanting to get down (and maybe a little dirty). This intrigued bartender Chad Bush and owners Zak Enterline and Steve Whitney.

Bush, who owns his own production company, Cubcuda Productions, was the creative force behind BeachBear Weekend, among other popular South Florida events. He pitched the idea of a "Pig Week" to Zak and Steve, as well as to a co-worker, Rich Rodriguez, who thought it would be a good idea to have the annual Leather Masked Ball event be part of the festivities. In short, "Pig Week" was born.
