Sacramento Bacon Fest 7

Wednesday, February 7, Bottle & Barlow, 6 p.m., $5


Technically Sacramento Bacon Fest, a six-day celebration of the salt-cured pork, kicks off on Tuesday. But with bacon’s popularity, it’s no surprise that the event is sold out. Don’t fret—you can still join the fun during the Bacon Fest Cocktail Competition, where top bartenders craft bacon-inspired drinks at Bottle & Barlow. Try a bacon boozy milkshake at LowBrau or take part in the Bacon Fest Skee Ball Tournament at Two Rivers Cider (both on 2/8). The highlight of the week may be the Kevin Bacon Soundtrack Tribute Show at Torch Club (2/9), and the event closes with the Bacon Fest Chefs Competition at, where else, Mulvaney’s B&L. Treat yourself to all this bacon bliss. 1120 R Street,
