I see that sign all the time and it always creeps me out.

It always makes me hungry.

That place is great. The front is like an old 30s grocery store out of a Capra movie, they're so nice and helpful... and then you glimpse the killing floor through the windows, and it's like a Francis Bacon painting back there. Appreciate it now, it's another piece of the real Chicago that'll be gone in 5 minutes, to be replaced by yet another condo building.

Anyway, if you like pigs for dinner, check out my video that goes with the Reader's cover story on mulefoot pigs this week: http://www.chicagoreader.com/features/stories/wholehog/video/

I was just taking a break from editing the slaughterhouse sequence.
