Ah, Fridays.

Your day to stare out your office window and contemplate the great times ahead with the loves of your life.

Of course we’re talking about ice-cold suds and pork meatballs.

So drink in The Salty Pig, a new Back Bay/South End borderland haven for wood-fired pizza and local beers after work, tentatively opening this Wednesday.

Think of this as your new neighborhood-y getaway when you can’t decide if it’s a local-beers-in-the-Back-Bay sort of night, or a charcuterie-and-hand-selected-cheese-in-the-South-End sort of night (your life is filled with such brutal decisions).

Thus, come Wednesday, when the last Roger Sterling-esque client call has been made, you’ll grab a few buddies and belly up to the reclaimed-wood bar. There you’ll toast to a charmed life over a few local drafts like Ipswich’s own Notch Session Pils, or Nantucket’s Cisco Whale’s Tale Pale Ale, and start planning your Thursday night epicness over artisanal cheeses and plates of housemade Pork and Garlic Meatballs with Crispy Guanciale (aka pig jowl).

You’ll be happy to know that they’ll be house curing a wide range of their meats, be it for a charcuterie platter (best enjoyed out on the 50-seat patio) or atop one of their wood-fired pizzas like the Salty Pig Pizza, which comes topped with a daily selection of salted pig parts.

In other words, leave your vegan girlfriend at home.
