OLD CITY green is hosting its fourth annual fundraiser roast this Saturday from 7 to 10 pm, the “Cinco de Mayo Pig Roast & Garden Fundraiser.” The party is at the garden store at the corner of 9th and N Streets NW.

Cost is $25 and tickets can be purchased online ($30 if you pay on site). All proceeds will support Wangari Gardens, a local gardening project co-founded by Sarah, one of OLD CITY green’s master gardeners.

What to expect? Owner Frank Asher lists the following:

  • A locally raised pig roasted by a D.C. celebrity neighborhood chef.
  • Roast chicken with achiote provided by Seasonal Pantry.
  • Veggie taco fixin’s made with D.C. grown veggies and herbs.
  • Bring a Cinco de Mayo inspired dish made with your favorite local ingredients!

Asher says, “Invite friends, family, neighbors, and dates for a fun-filled night of mariachi music, delicious eats, and some great drinks to quench your thirst — think cervezas, margaritas, limeade, sangria.”
