Pork for All!

What a neat idea! A friend and his wife, along with their friends, have taken to roasting pig on a patch of open land in the Potrero Hill/Dogpatch neighborhood. What could be more civilized, more God-given, and more liberating than a communal pig cooked on public land? I must say this kind of social networking is more real than hours spent Facebooking.

The La Caja China portable pig roaster cooks a whole pig conveniently. Whether it actually evolved from the Chinese Cuban community, I'm not sure--most likely a tall-tale to lend the contraption a certain exotic mystery, as well as be a conversation piece to while the time away waiting for the pig to cook.

And if you get bored talking about the pig, well, the neighborhood park might just offer bizarre entertainment.
