LUVERNE — The second annual We Love Pork challenge, sponsored by the Rock County Pork Producers, kicks off Oct. 19, and will continue through Nov. 21.

Eight participating restaurants will create delicious pork meals to showcase for the challenge. Enjoy a pork sandwich at any restaurant, any time during the contest, and you will have a chance to rate what you ate.

Participating restaurants include the 75 Diner, Green Lantern Bar & Grill, Hidden Hills Café & Hideaway Tavern, Howling Dog Saloon, Magnolia Café, SpringBrooke Events Golf & Grill, Sterling’s Café & Grille and Vinnie’s Dang Fine Dine.

Customers will assign points in five categories — meat, presentation, toppings, flavor and customer service — to determine the winner with the highest point average.

Rock County Pork Producers will present the We Love Pork traveling trophy to the winner of the contest Nov. 28, during the Flannel Formal at Take 16 Brewing Company. The formal is part of Luverne’s first Flannel Fest.
