SacFoodies Weekend Picks
Sacramento’s Bacon Fest is officially underway, and while many events are already sold out, there are still opportunities to partake in some bacon-y shenanigans.
The Baddest Bacon Happy Hour
The Golden Bear is the place to be Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the “Baddest Bacon Happy Hour.” We’re not sure what that means, but this is coming from the folks that created the Juicy Lucy Burger, so it’s bound to be amazing.

Pangaea’s Fifth Annual Bacon & Beer Night
If you didn’t get your fill of bacon at brunch, (editor note: is there such thing as too much bacon??), then head over to Pangaea Bier Café on Saturday night for their bacon festivities. It does have a bit of secrecy to it, but here’s what we know: there will be beer, bacon and Bacon Suicide IPA. We’re in!
