While the Stephen's Meat Products building has been demolished and the land transformed into a parking lot, its famed neon pig was saved. That was nice enough, even though it hadn't been lit in months. Then a few nights ago I was heading home and saw -- the return of the dancing pig! Why San Jose is maintaining this thing, lighting it up at night... I haven't a clue. But I'm glad to share the good news: The neon pig dances again.
