Perhaps you're surprised (or not so surprised) to hear that bacon now has an international holiday called Bacon Day. No, you don't get off from school or work, but you won't have to, because Bacon Day is on a Saturday--specifically, September 3, 2011.
So, what does Bacon Day entail? For bacon fans (or in other words, fans of deliciousness), international Bacon Day is comprised of bacon-themed social gatherings, which include bacon drinks, entrees, desserts, and the like. Yes, you heard me--bacon drinks. If you're in the mood for some alcoholic beverages inspired by bacon, check out bacontoday for some cocktail recipes.
