Bacon and Beer Festival

The perfect day: Being roused out of bed by the smell of bacon frying in a pan, and coming home later to a belly-warming brew. Better yet, head to the Bacon and Beer Festival and celebrate the pair together. Bacon-based dishes will be doled out by 24 favorite Colorado restaurants (think Euclid Hall, The Kitchen Denver, and Lucky Pie Pizza), while ales from Great Divide, the Denver Beer Company, and more help wash it all down. Heads up: The event is currently sold out, but word on the street is that a select number of tickets will be released the day of. Add your name to the waiting list to snag 'em. Sun 2:30-5 p.m.
