    Pig Out on BBQ Pork at Lolita
    Lolita BYOB
    The best part of the barbecue is the part someone else cooks for you.

    Lolita, the haute Mexican BYOB in Midtown Village, is bringing back its summer barbecue series, starting Monday, June 1. Every Monday throughout the summer, they're serving up a different $35 three-course menu centered around a particular grilled ingredient and for the first BBQ of the season, pork is the shining star.

    The June 1 menu kicks off with a Serrano ham, melon and butter lettuce salad; for entrees, prepare to pig out on pineapple-glazed baby-back ribs, hickory-smoked pork carnitas and grilled pork tenderloin with a three chile rub, and for dessert, tres leches cake and a Mexican-spiced chocolate pot de creme.

    Of course, since it's a BYO, you'll have to bring your own booze. Tote along a bottle of tequila to combine with Lolita's homemade margarita mixers, like the luscious watermelon-mint or summery strawberry basil.

    Courses are served family style and the whole table must participate. Call 215-546-7100 for reservations.
