5 great food events this week

When spring nor’easters threaten, there’s only one thing to do: eat and drink the cold clouds away. Get down on a spicy Sixpoint spread, toast “Opa!” to independence, sip spirits to help save puppies and enjoy a pop-up feast from the chef of a former beloved BYO.

There’s also a gal-happy gala where you can enjoy food from Philly’s best female talents for a good cause.
