FISHTOWN — It's about time that Kensington Quarters, a place that might own pig bones in excess, starts making soup out of them. The restaurant/boutique-butcher is hosting a ramen pop-up on the second floor tomorrow night, January 27. John Boswell is cooking up pork ramen ($14), vegetable ramen ($12), steamed buns ($6), and serving KQ's house made charcuterie. Wash it all down with a sour beer, a natural wine, or a Basque cider and you'll be fortified for more wintry weather. Wednesday, January 27, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. No reservations.
EAST PASSYUNK — A benefit for Project H.O.M.E, Le Virtù is hosting a traditional outdoor Abruzzese festival, La Cottora, in their garden tomorrow night, January 27, along with Di Bruno Brothers' Emilio Mignucci, Stargazy chef Sam Jacobson, and Michael Strauss of Taproom on 19th.
