Pork is the Answer, on the Lower East Side

Pork is the Answer
Photo by myself on Orchard and Houston Streets, on the Lower East Side.

The sandwich board style sign has a picture of a pig turning into bacon. The text reads: 'Sun Fried? Pork is the Answer!'

The sign was outside Georgia's East Side BBQ, a restaurant on the Lower East Side. I've never eaten there, but the reviews are generally very good.

Their lip-smacking menu includes goodies like baby back pork ribs, pulled pork, fried catfish and burgers that weigh half a pound. Yeesh.

I wonder who the chalk artist is? A waiter or waitress? Sounds like a yummy lunch menu!

The pork industry defends horrendous cruelty to animals -- factory farmers keep breeding pigs locked in two-foot-wide crates where the pigs can’t even turn around for nearly their entire lives. Eight states have passed laws against this type of animal abuse, yet groups like the National Pork Producers Council still support it.

Is New York part of the bad heatwave that's in the US at the moment? I heard about it on the news but I didn't realise it was NY!

I don't quite see how pork is the answer (i would have thought a salad would do nicely!) but it's inventive. I'll give the owner that. :)
