“The Heights will welcome summer and host its annual Pig on the Patio event this Saturday and Sunday, June 7-8, 2014, with drink and pork specials served all day throughout the restaurant. In addition, on Saturday, June 7, EatWell Natural Farm’s Manager Erica S. Porch will be at The Heights so diners can “Meet The Farmer” and learn about the farm-to-table process.

The roast starts at 9:00 am rain or shine on the 80-seat patio, which was recently revamped to include comfortable lounge seating and fire pits. Specials feature all parts of the pig, and range from small bites such as Pig Ear “Frites” ($6) to entrees like the Pig Head BLT ($15). A sampling of the entire pig can be experienced with the the Head To Tail Platter ($20), served with cole slaw, collard greens, and grilled corn.
