As we've previously reported, Whole Hog Cafe is expanding its porcine empire into Rock Creek Plaza, the shopping center at the corner of Bowman and West Markham that houses, among other things, Hobby Lobby and El Porton. It's scheduled to open, we hear, in two to three weeks. Ron Blasingame, co-owner of the original Whole Hog, will run this new outpost with his wife, Kathy.
