Chocolate covered bacon at the State Fair…Bacon as a beer garnish at Pangaea…It’s hard to tell if bacon is gaining popularity these days, or if it’s always been this popular and people are just starting to get more creative about showing their bacon enthusiasm. Either way, the idea of a Sacramento Bacon Fest seems totally awesome. The “Inaugural Bacon Fest Sacramento 2012″ will be held from January 20th-22. Here are the events scheduled:
