Cochon 555 Hits Philly; Free Spit-Roasted Lamb Feast

CENTER CITY — If you're sticking around the city this weekend and have a spare $125 floating around, there are still tickets left for Cochon 555 on Sunday at Le Meridien. You'll sample tons of pork-intensive dishes, beer, and bourbon, and check out a whole-pig cooking competition featuring chefs like Brauhaus Schmitz's Jeremy Nolen, Alla Spina's Pat Szoke, and more.

MIDTOWN VILLAGE — If you're sticking around and don't have that kind of scratch, head over to the Drury Beer Garden at Opa for some free spit-roasted lamb. It's the first of several "Summer Souvlas," or whole-animal feasts, and for this first one, they're carving up the roast for their guests free of chanrge. The event starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 24; Drury is currently touting an expanded beer and cocktail menu to go with. [EaterWire]

CENTER CITY/U CITY/KOP — Memorial Day weekend means it's corn dog weekend at Shake Shack. Also: pecan pie concretes. But mostly: corn dogs. [Foobooz]
