When it comes to pork, I'd say that Philippines certainly know their way around cooking it.  My ears still echo with Anthony Bourdain announcing on his show that our lechon aka roast pig is the BEST Pig Ever. Who am I to argue with a culinary giant?  But when you pair pulutan and beer, life can only get better.  So what's pulutan? Well, it's Filipino for the food that's best eaten with beer and what's one of the best things eaten with beer? Why, pork of course!

For this Pork and Beer Pairing Event, I'm partnering with Pig Parts and Beer Founder, Karena Higgins, former owner of Butter Tart and co-blogger, Haydee Vicedo. The goal for Pig Parts and Beer is to become a Filipino-American lifestyle blog that revolves around supporting and promoting Filipino food and drink. That support is going to come in the form of Filipino Food events starting with this one. See all the info below.

The Food will be provided by:
Curbside Craving, a Filipino Food Truck

For the Beer:
2 will be Craft Beers Chosen by Michael Milan of Verdugo Bar
2 will be Craft Beers Chosen by Eagle Rock Brewery

The location of this event will actually be at Karena's home in Glassell Park with a beautiful view of Los Angeles. You can see available street parking; however, you should know that Karena's home is on a hill, so the further down you park, the further up you'll have to walk.

Shuttle parking will be available at no cost and the first pick up will be at 5:15 pm. The pickup locations can be seen at the pink happy face circles below.

Attendees who arrive and check in between 5:30 pm and 6:00 pm will be eligible to enter a raffle to win a gift pack of beer worth $50.

    Love the Bourdain picture, and remember that episode where he was savoring the skin.
