Camp Promise Brunch: Saturday, August 8

Chris Blanco, currently chef for the Belltown software company TUNE and formerly of New York's Wild Edibles and Centro Vinoteca, is hosting a Southeast Asian-inspired benefit brunch for Camp Promise, an organization that provides weeklong overnight camps for individuals with muscular dystrophy or select neuromuscular diseases. $40 gets you four courses with duck leg banh mi, hot and sour soup with Alaskan sockeye fish balls, black rice pudding, and more. And because it's the weekend, for another $20, throw in bottomless beer and wine. The brunch will kick off at 11 a.m. at TUNE (Suite 100B) and there will be additional seatings at 11:30, noon, 12:30, and 1 p.m. See the full menu and reserve seats through Dyne. Tax and gratuity are not included.

La Fête du Cochon, Tuesday, August 11

Pork lovers, rejoice: Pomerol's chef Caleb Dorman is throwing this feast to celebrate the annual Festival of the Pig held each August in the French town Trie-sur-Baïse. Dorman will first lead guests through a nose-to-tail pig butchery demo class, then serve a three-course menu with some of the more common preparations. Expect grilled pork loin and tenderloin, roast pork shoulder and leg, and more for $52, plus tax and gratuity. The event will take place at Pomerol, and there is just one seating at 6 p.m. Check out the details and grab seats here.
