Attention all bacon lovers: Monday August 31st is your day! That’s right, it’s International Bacon Day. Personally, we love bacon. We love eating it in our food, finding it in our drinks, and mixing it into different recipes to create new flavor combinations. Check out some of our favorite places to find our favorite pork-based treat below in celebration of this epic brunch-based holiday.
