There are pig parties, and then there is Go Pig! Or Go Home! The second annual charity throwdown event last night at Kata Robata was every pig lover's dream -- and then some -- with Houston's top chefs throwin' down everything from traditional roast suckling pig to cochinita pibil to oysters topped with pig, plus pig pizza, pig sushi handrolls and pig ramen.

With more than 600 attendees and over 20 chefs competing, it was easy to get swept away by all the gleeful craziness of it all. Everywhere you looked, there were people enthusiastically stuffing their faces, while others laughed, drank, hugged and ogled the endless pig imagery on display at almost every single stand.
