In 2019, I sat facing my brother, whose brow was sweaty during a family dinner at Emmy Squared.

Four of the restaurant’s Detroit-style pizzas sat on the table. He had chowed down on several pepperoni-laden slices and prioritized others with meat toppings.

“Oh man,” he said. “I’ve got the meat sweats.”

I laughed, almost spitting out my water. My parents looked concerned.

Before then, I hadn’t really heard the phrase. But the term wasn’t new then and isn’t now. In fact, it’s frequently referenced — with many social media users sharing images of piled meat with captions like “bring on the meat sweats.”
