Beef over competing pork roll fests in New Jersey
(AP) - A beef between organizers of two competing pork roll festivals in New Jersey's capital city has turned into a food fight.
"Trenton Pork Roll Festival 2015" organizer TC Nelson received a cease-and-desist letter from a lawyer for "Official 2nd Annual Pork Roll Festival" organizer Scott Miller.
The men ran the city's first festival last year, which celebrated the pork-based processed meat that was developed in the city and is also known as Taylor Ham. But a disagreement grew over money and organization.
Nelson says it is ridiculous that Miller wants him to license the idea of having a festival.
Miller's lawyer says in an email that Miller's organization remains open to discussing options.
The festivals are scheduled for May 23, along with The Trenton Vegan Pork Roll festival.
