Gather round, kiddies. Let me tell you a story.
It’s about a place – a magical place! A place where bacon – yes that’s right, bacon – flows like water. Not just any bacon either, but every kind of bacon imaginable. Thick bacon, thin bacon, smoky bacon, sweet bacon, spicy bacon, fatty bacon, lean bacon, bacon candy…you get the picture. You like bacon, don’tcha? Yep. I thought so.
Not only that, at this magical place there are fascinating bacon speakers – bacon poets, bacon writers – and even some bacon music to boot. Think of it like delicious, porky Hogwarts.
I know, kids, I know. Sounds…wonderful. Well, what if I were to tell you that such a place exists? You’d probably tell me I’ve lost my lardons and need a pig knuckle to the head. But it does! It does exist…and you can go.
It’s called Camp Bacon, and it’s an event unlike any other, put on by beloved culinary icon Zingerman’s Deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan. And it’s this weekend – Saturday July 2nd, starting at 8:30 am (there are 4 days of bacon related festivities surrounding the main event as well).
Short notice, I know! But there is literally no better way to celebrate your American freedoms than by demonstrating – repeatedly – your right to consume massive amounts of delicious, wonderful bacon, at Camp Bacon. If you can make it, get your ham hocks in gear to Ann Arbor and live the dream.
