BARBECUEWIRE—Hemingway pitmaster Rodney Scott ends his fundraising tour in Charleston, tomorrow, with a celebration dinner. On Tuesday, February 4 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Scott will team up with Husk/McCrady's chef Sean Brock and Skylight Inn barbecue master Sam Jones to offer a whole hog and fried chicken feast at No. 5 Faber. This is a rare opportunity to sample some of the best pulled pork in the South. Tickets are $100 and are available by calling 843.577.0025 ext. 4 or emailing [EaterWire]

EVENTWIRE—What could be better than an event named "Bacon & Bourbon?" Not much. Local restaurants, like Poogan's Porch, The Granary, Cru Café , Ted's Butcherblock and more, will offer porky pairings (think bacon-flavored cotton candy) as guests sample various bourbons. Add in mechanical bull riding, laser skeet shooting and confetti prize cannons, and the evening sounds like an adult wonderland. The event is Saturday, February 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at Memminger Auditorium. Tickets are $65 and are available at [EaterWire]
