Pig out

There’s a well-known adage that claims, “One pig does not a Summer make.” Perhaps, but when we were on Cross Street (just off K-Road in Auckland) looking at the new space (very nice) being prepared for the Hopkinson Cundy gallery opening 5 November, we suddenly found ourselves slap-bang in Pig Processing Place. The local Chinese restaurant looks as though it must slice and dice its way through about half a dozen carcasses a week, maybe more. When you think about it, PPP doesn’t sound all that catchy, how about we call it the Meat Packing District.
