Here, Piggy, Piggy
Last weekend, the geeks had their annual "prom" at Albuquerque Comic Expo. This weekend, the carnivores will reign supreme at the 11th annual Pork & Brew BBQ State Championship, a three-day celebration of all things meaty and grilled. There will be beer, wine tastings, eating contests and samples galore, and if you don't go through an entire case of wetwipes by the end of the first day, you're doing it wrong. The event happens Friday and Saturday, July 4 and 5, from 11am to 8pm, and Sunday, July 6, from 11am to 5pm. Tickets range from $20-$60. (Ty Bannerman)
