So I noticed that both the t-shirt and the sweatshirt I pulled on haphazardly this morning were bacon themed. Ironic since I made bacon for breakfast.
My black t-shirt states “Waffle Bacon” – a gift from a friend who was traveling in Montreal and discovered a small restaurant that serves handheld waffles, their most popular being the bacon waffle. She knew I’d love the shirt.
My sweatshirt has this logo designed by my friend Leila of Baxtaló. So cute, right? Show Bacon is kind of an inside joke in my work world. There are a few hundred contractors and vendors like me who support large conferences at convention centers around the world for a mutual client (think event planners, AV, registration and technical teams, etc.). While we don’t all support the same conferences at the same time, there is always one constant at every show: bacon for breakfast in the crew meal room. Its cult following is so strong that it has it’s own name, Show Bacon, and it’s own Facebook page. Believe me, when you are away from your family for two or three weeks straight, pulling long hours each day in the bowels of a windowless convention center, you take the simple joys where you can get them. And Show Bacon is one of those little slices (literally) of happiness you look forward to when you are on the road. We love Show Bacon.
So in keeping with my bacon themed day, here are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken over the past few years of some memorable bacon meals.
What’s your favorite bacon dish?
