All-Night Pigfest in Cambridge

If you can stand to miss Game 6—or want to feast before it—there's a six-course pigfest going down at TW Food tonight, where you can surround yourself in everything from Virginia-style house-smoked ham and a traditional French pig foot to pig head cake with potato and puff pastry. Hey, whatever puffs your pastry...

May 13, 5-10pm, $65, TW Food, 377 Walden St, Cambridge, RSVP at 617-864-4745

YOU'RE ON A BOAT

250 Wines. A Yacht. And You.

In the event your yacht is in the shop, Gordon's Wine is throwing a DJ'ed soiree aboard the Spirit of Boston tonight. Hors d'oeuvres and champagne will be passed by butlers, then you'll be set loose on a buffet that features carving, pasta and dessert stations, not to mention 250 wines. You might want to have a cab waiting at the dock.

May 13, 6:30-10pm, $85, Vino Voyage, Commonwealth Pier, tickets at 617-893-1900, ext 3

Sunday
Like Woodstock for Vinyl
HIGH FIDELITY

Like Woodstock for Vinyl

The Greater Boston Record Collectors are conventioning Sunday morning in Woburn, with over 40 private and professional jazz, funk, rock and R&B collectors hawking their wares. Translation: this is your chance to make a few bucks off your thorough Johnny Gill collection, or score some rare Johnny Cash. Probably both.

Tiki Madness in Fort Point Channel

Let's face it: you're not really a stay-at-home-on-Sunday person. So you may want to head to Drink for their Tiki Sundays, which just got rebooted a few weeks back. If you go, definitely try the Zombie, featuring three rums, fresh juices and absinthe, served in a real tiki mug by a bartender wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Let's get crazy, people.

Sundays, 4pm-1am, Drink, 348 Congress St, 617-695-1806

Monday
Monday = Tequila
BLUE AGAVE

Monday = Tequila

Next to Salma Hayek, tequila is Mexico's greatest gift to the world. On Monday, Tremont 647 is honoring the import with a tequila super-tasting that pairs Milagro tequila with braised lamb, tamales and chicken enchiladas. There will also be a margarita reception to kick things off, plus a lecturer who's an expert on the drink. Amazingly, it's not you.

May 17, 6-10pm, $39, Tremont 647, 647 Tremont St, 617-266-4600
