Food Events This Week: Pig Roasts & Cocktail Competitions

By Scott Kearnan
April 21, 2014

Monday, April 21. It's Marathon Monday, and many have the day off. So there's no reason to not check out some of the Marathon-related specials we've rounded up, including a patio-opening party at Fairsted Kitchen and a special Strega dish supporting the One Fund. 

Tuesday, April 22. Save on airfare will still savoring at "Taste of Toscana" starting at 6 PM. The special wine dinner at Bistro du Midi will feature a five-course meal of Provencal fare, paired with sips from famed Italian winemaker Marchesi Antinori. Seats are $125 per person, and you'll want to call ahead to reserve: 617-426-7878.

Wednesday, April 23. The Marathon runners aren't the only competitors worth celebrating this week - at least, not if you're a cocktail lover. On Wednesday the Cyclorama at the South End's Boston Center for the Arts will host "Movers & Shakers," the fifth annual cocktail competition where guests vote on the best craft concoction. Bartenders from restaurants like Aquitaine, Island Creek Oyster Bar, Kirkland Tap & Trotter, Mooo and many more will pour out creative drinks (with food pairings) from 7-9 PM. Tickets are $35 here

Thursday, April 24. The weather is warming up, and patios across the city are reopening for the spring season. Which means you can expect a spate of restaurant-hosted barbecues and animal roasts in the weeks ahead, starting with Thursday's "Pig Roast Patio Party" at The Salty Pig. Tickets are just $15 here for the festivities, which includes all-you-can eat pig parts and a cold beer. The spit turns from 4:30-6:30 PM.
