Bacon, Beer and Blues

Seen the Light?

I have begun fasting in preparation for the Bacon, Beer and Blues festival at the Balloon Fiesta Park this Saturday, Apr. 15. My tummy will be an empty vessel, poised to receive the bacon-themed delicacies of 50 local restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, and gourmet food companies and the sudsy products of 12 local craft breweries. But more importantly: My spirit will be purified and ready to accept the unmitigated truth dished out by three of the best local blues bands. Tickets are $8 for general admission and $35 for a Bacon & Beer Premier Pass. The party starts at 11am. I will be avoiding the eating contest. Competition mars the spiritual journey, you know.  (Joshua Lee)
