Wooly Pig at Merlo on Maple; Chili Cook Off at Martyr's;

GOLD COAST—Starting tonight, Merlo on Maple has Mangalitsa aka "wooly pig" on the menu. The hog is brined for 48 hours and then served with seasonal vegetables and housemade plum marmalade. If pig isn't your thing, go for the whole-roasted Mediterranean turbot. Don't worry, they'll clean and bone it for you in the kitchen. [EaterWire]

NORTH CENTER—Bring a canned good for the Greater Chicago Food Depository to Martyr's Jan. 29 and get $5 off admission to Time Out Chicago's Chili Cook Off and vote on 15 contestants' chili. Groove to live music by Chicago Stone Lightning Band. [TOC]

WEST LOOP—Even though the Bears aren't going to the Super Bowl, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a great meal while watching the Big Game. Avec will show the game on a special projection screen and will have some TBD game-day specials. The regular menu will be available. [EaterWire]
