Did anybody win the lottery last night? Does anybody want to sponsor me? I NEED FUNDING NOW! Somebody help me out here. Nobody told me there is a “Bacon Camp” in San Francisco! As if I needed another reason to want to go to San Francisco!
YES! And, it’s coming up this week, March 21st. The 1st annual Bacon Camp will be held from 1-5 pm at 500 3rd Street, Suite 510, San Francisco, CA. I cannot believe that I’m going to miss it (unless somebody gives me money for a ticket fast).
Oh, they are going to have such fun there! Vendors will be selling cool “bacon stuff.” People will be preparing dishes made with bacon! I’m a pig for bacon! I need it! Here is what the website says:
Not sure what to present? Short demonstrations on how to prepare your favorite bacon dish or tips on the basics – how to best prepare bacon (microwave versus campfire, etc.) or a comical what not to do when preparing bacon, how best to wrap crispy bacon around melted marshmallows (or do you wrap the bacon around the marshmallow and then put in the campfire?).
Creativity is encouraged! Can’t cook? That’s ok! Techniques, poems, interpretive dance, anything! What about an Ode to Bacon? or a Haiku?
Can’t write? That’s ok too! What about a short animation of Bacon’s delight at throwing a brunch for friends and being the center of attention? What about Bacon-inspired fabric designs – potholders or tablecloths?
You get what we mean – as long as your idea is bacon-licious we love it!
I’m salivating. I can’t stand the agony! They are even going to have t-shirts with that logo above on them!
If that wasn’t enough, they published this Bacon video — The Internet Bacon Meme in 60 seconds. I’ve watched it for an hour now, and the front of my shirt is soaked with drool! Just shoot me!

The sponsors definitely have a sense of humor I can admire: “All proceeds go to the American Heart Association. We hope that they find some cures for heart disease so we can continue the bacon indulgence.”
Are you going to the conference? I don’t figure that any of you are going to wire me any money, so I won’t go. But, would you get me a t-shirt?
