Porky's wasn't about the food!! It was about the car enthusist sub-culture that gathered there. People won't miss the greasy onion rings they'll miss he burnouts and the gatherings on Saturday nights. That's why it's a big deal that it's moving. Understand now?
all you car slobs wasted the earths natural resources. You really are porkys and selfish.

It is because of the burnouts that any neighborhood does not want Porky's.

Some fools doing burnouts in the Midway killed a pedestrian in 2009 while thir drunked beer drinking and pot smoking friends were watching.
No one wants this nonsense in their neighborhood. It is not good for kids, or any community.

Same culture of drag racing which is what a lot of you loved watching on University, which is why the cops were after that kind of behavior. I don't know what you get out of putting Asians down. People who feel the need to put other people down have low self-esteem. If you had high self-esteem, you would pursue something more worthwhile and classier than drag racing down a commercial corridor and wolfing down the alpo that was served at Porky's.

Porky's stories have become the new filler for the PP, effectively replacing all of the Denny Hecker stories.

Interesting that they are moving the building to Hastings. I imagine that the Libs will try to secure funding for the Red Rock Line and build it by the re-located Porky's, so they can ruin it again...

OH LORDY,

Hurling insults at me proves what a classless jerk you are. The point remains that it is the same culture of drag racing and burning rubber on and close to university avenue that caused this trajedy. Take it to your neighborhood instead and see how much they love it. People have no right to clog a commercial corridor with classic cars moving at 10 miles an hour, or to subject other people to danger from drag racers.

I hope to instill that safety aspect in your brain, not that I am hopeful you are capable of common sense.

What is wrong with fond memories of parking at Porky's. It's been over 50 years but I believe all of us from Wilson High went there twice a week.

I was going to post the same thing. I mean, really, what is it with Porkey's? Everyone knows about this place, everything that can possibly have been written about this place already has, let's move on. There was a Burger King by my house that shut down last year, the building got a makeover and is now an Arby's, I didn't see anything written anywhere about that.
Burger King is from out of state and therefore not a true MINNESOTA INSTITUION! We owe it to the true MINNESOTA INSTITUION. The state should pay for all expenses plus an 18% gratuity for the true MINNESOTA INSTITUION.

Nothing should ever change in this state. It is PERFECT exactly as it is, always!
