On Saturday, I went to my first BaconFest - and it will not be my last.
Y'all know I love bacon - baked, fried, heck I'd probably like it raw, but I don't like salmonella, so I won't test that theory. The only thing I did test was my body's capacity to hold pig products. I did really well. We had beer, bacon, and BLTs, plus bacon-flavored lollipops and popsicles.
There was a lot more there than pork, though. Loads of local businesses had stands are were hosting giveaways. The Marietta Roller Girls had a prize wheel - I spun it to "HIT" and got to bodyslam a Derby Girl. Very Excellent Boyfriend got a derby name.

I picked-up a sweet sweatband from the Yelp table.
Whynatte Lattes was handing-out free drinks at their tent. I love me some caffeine, so I had to grab a couple.
But my favorite booth, by far, was the Hobo Wine Tasting.
In this magical space, we got to sample the finest wines the bottom shelf has to offer - MD, Cisco, Night Train, and Wild Irish Rose. And we cleansed our palates with Ritz crackers and cheese whiz.
Plus, we saw Lara Smith - she went to college with us! Hey, Lara!
|True story: I actually, really, for real took this by accident.|
We loved BaconFest.
