Author/blogger Heather Lauer takes her porcine madness on the road in this get-together for fans of the "Best Meat Ever." Admission nets you a copy of Lauer's new book (Bacon: A Love Story -- A Salty Survey of Everybodys Favorite Meat), bacon-centric appetizers, and two beverage tickets. Bacon is the niche that Lauer has carved out for herself. The Phoenix-based pork princess is the go-to gal for all things related to porcine belly meat thanks to her four-year-old Bacon Unwrapped blog, a compendium of culinary and other news related to the crispy, heart-stopping delight (including swine flu, natch).

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
