How did I not know that in 2011 Porky’s closed and auctioned off the building which was shipped off and moved to the country to become a museum relic?
I lived in Minneapolis from 2003-2006 and haven’t been back in ages. This was by far one of my favorite things in Minneapolis/St.Paul, not just because of the great food, but because the place would be jam packed with muscle cars on Friday nights. Also, the winking pig neon was way cool.
It sucks to find out something you loved is gone, but it sucks more to find out about it 5 years after the fact. Oh, well... at least I don’t live in the rust belt any more.
