Weekend Planner: Memorial Day Edition


Memorial Day Pig Roast at G&O

Few things are more Americana than a good ol’ fashioned pig roast, making the event at G&O an apt occasion for the patriotic holiday. Taking place on the West Town patio May 28, the porcine soiree features 4 Hands Brewing Co. beers and an all-you-can-eat array of smoked pig, plus sides like braised collard greens, mac & cheese, and cole slaw. It takes place at 3:00 p.m. and costs just $18 per person. Not only are 4 Hands beers on draft, but they’re incorporated into all the dishes on deck for the day. Tickets are available at the door.
