The cachaca will be flowing with two-for-one Caipirinhas, as well as two-for-one empanadas, cheese bread and meat skewers. Everyone loves meat on a stick.

Pigskins, Pork Bellies and Snow-casting
The weekend is springing forward.
Nothing goes down better with an ice cold beer than chicharrones (we're talking about fried pigskins). And these beauties, made by Orson vet Ryan Farr, are the best around, especially with a squeeze of lime and splash of hot sauce.
If you don't know about this weather.com alternative, check it out for the most accurate, ski-specific forecasts in one click's time—complete with web cams and jet stream, satellite and Doppler radar maps—because every snowflake counts.
Grab a few beers or cocktails, some BBQ and a cupcake (for her, naturally) and browse everything from T-shirts to belt buckles from 45 local designers—thankfully drinking and buying mix just fine.
A mobile rotisserie is no myth, and Sunday you'll catch it in action when Thomas rolls up with a whole roasted pig. Order rarities like pork neck or favorites like porchetta, then wait in the cafe with a bottle of wine—which beats standing in line at the farmer's market any day of the week.
This pork-filled and pinot-drenched weekend starts with a 50-wine kickoff and swine-centric cooking classes and ends with a Pigs & Pinot gala—unlike on Capitol Hill, this is the good pork.
