Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour

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 Everybody’s 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).
