1) Penn Quarter: Poste's courtyard opens for spring tomorrow and, in celebration, chef Rob Weland is roasting a pig from Bev Eggleston's Eco-Friendly Foods. For a $20 entry fee, guests will get a plate of pork between 5:30 to 8 p.m. and happy hour drink specials all night.

2) Old Town Alexandria: Another Kimpton restaurant is hosting a competing pig roast tomorrow with a sightly higher price point. Jackson 20 will have a whole-roasted pig from Dorsey Farm in their courtyard party tomorrow. It'll be all-you-can-eat for $35, featuring smoked pig, suckling pig, pulled pork, ribs, potato salad, coleslaw, cornbread, pies and more. The party starts at 3 p.m. with the restaurant's happy hour, but the food is all going down at 6 p.m.

3) Clarendon: On Thursday, the pork train stops at Clarendon's 3, which is also opening its patio with a party from 4 to 8 p.m. Admission to the party — which will be hosted by a local sports talk radio station — is free of charge, but pulled pork sandwiches will cost you $5, with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House.

4) Farragut Square: And if the week of pig roasts has got you wishing you could just DIY, BLT Steak's Victor Albisu is teaching a class on Saturday about how to break down a pig and then cook it. For $100 per person, you'll get a bunch of cooking tips — and a four-course meal consisting of whole roasted suckling pig, crispy pig ears and artichokes, a Valencia salad and a chorizo stuffed pork loin roulade. Class starts at 12:30 and goes until 3 p.m.
