This weekend is an ode to the pig — and we’re pretty stinkin’ happy about that. Obviously, there’s the big game where the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will throw around some pig skin, but Revelry Brewing Co. is also hosting a whole pig roast on Saturday. There is no such thing as pig overload, but for all you non-swine lovers, there’s plenty of other things to do, from historical reenactments to oyster roasts, comedy shows, and even a raw vegan potluck lunch.
