Annual Movember Charity Pig Roast at Little Miss Whiskey's

The Movember fundraising gang is back, and they are once again holding a charity pig roast. This year's event takes place at Little Miss Whiskey's (1104 H St.) from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 19,  and tickets are $60. That gets you all you can eat & drink, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Movember Foundation, which focuses on men's health (specifically on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health/suicide prevention).

DC Brau will provide the beer, and chef Ryan Gordon of the Queen Vic (1206 H St.) will roast a whole pig, and prepare the side dishes. They'll also hold a cash raffle with hundreds of dollars in prizes. Last year this event drew around 65 people and raised over $1500 for the cause. This year the organizers are going big. They hope to sell out at 100 people, and raise about $3500.
