Bacon. It just makes everything better, doesn't it? Throw it on a cheeseburger and instantly up your grilling game. Pop it in to some grilled cheese and enjoy a sophisticated version of a childhood favorite. Wrap it around a good cause and your fundraiser becomes a sizzling good time.

Baconfest, one of the Kalamazoo Jaycees signature events, is coming to Rupert's Brew House, Saturday, July 28th, from 2pm to 5pm. Enter the Best Bacon Recipe Contest (for a low, low entry fee of $5) and you could win an awesome prize! While you're there learn what the Jaycees are all about, what they do, how they help our community, and learn more about their Duffle Bags of Love program and Ghosts of Kalamazoo Tours. All while eating bacon. Plus, I am officially volunteering to judge the Best Bacon Recipe Contest. I'll jump on that grenade. So join me for Baconfest!
