Ah bacon, quite possibly the best food on the planet. Last year Americans bought roughly 908 MILLION pounds of Bacon according to Credit.com. Yet one could argue the only thing more enjoyable than bacon is a nice cold beer. Tomorrow, you can enjoy the best of both worlds all for a great cause.

Boise Weekly Reported

Now in its third year in Boise, the benefit will bring more than 300 pounds of bacon to one place for a "bacon-inspired cook-off." Attendees will get the chance to eat as much as 40 ounces of porky creations from local chefs, along with beers from 20 Boise-area breweries. Games and a live DJ will round out the fun, and every bacon lover passing through will score a commemorative glass along with their food and drink tokens.

 

The proceded's will go on to benefit local nonprofits: Community Outreach Behavioral Services and Create Common Good.

The benefit takes place at Park Terrace Sat., Aug. 25, 1-5 p.m. $35-$40
