I ran into another physics professor (at the college down the street from where I live) at the awesome Naf Naf Grill a couple months ago. We got to talking, and it turns out that he has a really cool map of all the places to get tenderloins in Iowa.
This made me think of Porky's in Des Moines, which was across the street from the grocery store I worked at during high school. Unfortunately, Porky's is no more. Too bad, since the cruise nights were always a lot of fun.
I did find a new blog to follow: Des Loines. Their tagline is beautiful. "The Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich: It's like the filet-mignon cut of pork, deep fried to perfection."
