The pork goes down on Wednesday, May 23rd from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person, and you can get them here — use the promo code PHILLYMAG20 to get 20 percent off.

Proceeds will go to nonprofit No Kid Hungry, which works to end childhood hunger through programs like free summer meals, school breakfast, and food education.
