You know that salty, satisfying scent of bacon frying in the pan on a Saturday morning? The aroma drifting from the kitchen to lure you out of bed so you can claim your stake on each delicious slice?
What would you do if we told you that now there’s going to be an entire FESTIVAL devoted to this heaven of all meats?! BACON!
On August 31st, International Bacon Day, be there and be hungry!
