A meat raffle is a tradition of raffling off meat common in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Raffle tickets are sold in pubs and the winners take home packets of meat. The proceeds are donated to a local charity. The meat raffle has traveled to the Pacific Northwest to a brewpub in Portland. This is the best idea since sliced bread. Unfortunately Portland is 613 miles away. We will have to wait till Meat Raffles come to the Bay Area.
