The truck stops here! A taste of this weekend's culinary calendar

Get out and wag your tail for a good cause tonight. Global Health Connections is hosting a night of music, dancing, food and good company -- all for a good cause. Tickets for the event are $25 during the presale and $30 at the door; all proceeds go to the soon-to-open GHC maternity center in Leogane, Haiti, in an area hit hard by the 2010 earthquake. The fundraiser runs from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Posner Center for International Development, 1031 33rd Street. For more information, visit the GHC's website.

Keep reading for a two more events tomorrow.

Left Hand Brewing Company and Haystack Mountain Goat Cheese will collaborate on a beer and cheese pairing event from 1 to 4 p.m. today at the Left Hand tasting room. For $10, you'll receive a taster tray containing four Left Hand Beers and cheese samples from Haystack. This isn't just an event for adults; Haystack will be bringing a little of the farm to the brewery with a few of its prized baby goats. You can purchase your tickets here.

Talk about vroom service: South High School will be hosting its third annual Food Truck Festival from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the South High parking lot.
