Hmmm. What’s the Twin Cities dining scene missing? Polynesian food! With a pig roast! At a diner!

Well, not anymore.

Hi-Lo Diner, in a collaboration with Lowry Hill Meat, will bring you just that on Saturday, October 22. Butcher Erik Sather will provide the beast, roast it up Polynesian-style and serve it to you with a bunch of other dishes and sides, including:

• Huli Huli Chicken Skewers
• Ahi Poke Shooters
• Fried Brown Rice
• Jicama Haystacks
• Sweet Potato Salad Potato Skin Boats
• Classic Macaroni Salad
• Crazy Corn on the Cob
• Pineapple Hunks

Plus, dessert.

Also, brew from Bauhaus, cider from Milk & Honey, specialty cocktails from the Hi-Lo bar team, live music, yard games, and general merriment.

The whole shebang will cost $40 for all-you-can-eat pork and fixins plus two cocktails, and $75 for all-you-can-eat-and-drink. For kiddos under 10 it's 10 bucks. Buy tickets here.
