Following a successful turnout at last year’s PigOut 2.0, the organizers have returned once again with PigOut 3.0 – bigger, better, and with pignificant vengeance. This celebration of everyone’s favorite pink-snout animal delivers the goods with 15 of Orange County’s top chefs all preparing a feast for the ages, and ten of Orange County’s top mixologists all shaking up wicked concoctions. The general admission of $75 starts at 3pm allows all attendees four full hours of all-you-can-eat pork goodies, and all-you-can-drink craft cocktails. VIP admission costs $100, starts at 2pm, and includes a champagne reception plus a complimentary dessert item.

Underneath their tough exteriors, bikers have a sense of family and pride. This past Saturday at Harley Davidson of Huntington Beach, the charity Bikers Against Child Abuse International arrived to help host a fundraising event called All For The Kids. At this free and (sort of) all-ages event, visitors would find a massive display of motorcycles in the parking lot, motorcycle-themed vendors all around, live music in the afternoon, and a beer tent serving Hangar 24 and Einstök beer. Although advertised as no age restrictions, kids would not find much to do here, considering the amount of smokers and beer drinkers. Speaking of beer, all visitors could receive beer for FREE. The beer tent simply had a tip/donation box that allowed visitors to essentially pay their price for the beer. All of the money in this box went towards the Bikers Against Child Abuse charity, so visitors did not hesitate to donate towards the cause.

Huntington Beach Harley Davidson routinely holds varying events at their location in Westminster. Check out their website above for a full list of upcoming events. Also, give them a Like on Facebook to get updates about their event pages.
