We went out to San Fran for a cousin's graduation. To our amazement, there was a large roasted pig at the after party. It was quite delicious with its crispy skin and tender flesh. It reminded me of Peking duck. Apparently many Asian cultures celebrate with a pig roast (which doesn't sound so alien if you think luau).
The next time you are celebrating something special (birthday, engagement, bat mizvah), why not stop by your local Chinatown or Vietnamtown and pick one up?
