  • Ladies and gentlemen, it's gonna be a pig roast.

Get a taste of island flavor mixed with a bunch of local brews this Thursday, August 6 when Playground Bar & Lounge (278 E. Congress St.) hosts a luau-themed party. The bar off Congress will be roasting up a whole pig for the event and Dragoon Brewing Co. will be on site serving three different beers to try with the pork.

The pig itself will be marinated for a full day in a special blend of spices and Dragoon's IPA. After that, the pig will slow roast for about eight hours. Plates of pork will be served at the event with elote, pineapple slaw and one additional side. For dessert, HUB's vanilla ice cream will be scooped up alongside a tropical coconut pineapple cake with Dragoon's Ojo Blanco braised pineapple.

While Dragoon brews make a pretty strong food menu presence, you can also expect to find both the IPA and Ojo Blanco, along with the session ale available at the event in full pint form. The brewers will also be at the event to chat about their tasty creations.

$40 gets you a plate of roast and three pints. The event runs from 7 until 11 p.m. Seating for the event is limited and reservations are highly encouraged. You can make your reservation by e-mailing info@playgroundtucson.com with “Dragoon Hog Roast” as the subject, including your name, phone number and the number in your party.
