Fun Things to do in The Heights This Weekend! 9/2/22

Well Labor Day is the official end of Summer! Most folks are taking the last opportunity for a weekend at the beach, bbq cook out or trip out of town. As such there really aren’t any very large events scheduled in and around Tampa this weekend. Still a lot going on inside and outside this weekend around the neighborhood. Enjoy the long weekend! 

To bard, or not to bard, that is the question! Saturday is international bacon day! This unofficial holiday is celebrated on the first Saturday in September each year. Even though it is an international observance, the dates vary in some other cultures and countries.

1. Have a cookout – Pull out your pans and cook some bacon! American-style, Rashers, Irish, Slab, Lardons, and more, try as many types of bacon as you can!

2. Have a bacon party – Why try out all the different types of bacon by yourself? What fun is that? Invite your friends and have a full-on bacon party.

3. Post on social media – For the love of bacon! Post your favorite bacon-related meal or photos from your gathering with the hashtag #InternationalBaconDay

1. The meaning of bacon – The word ‘bacon’ means “meat from the back of an animal.”

2. The Breakfast Club – In the U.S., 70% of all bacon is eaten at breakfast.

3. Bacon production – More than two billion pounds of bacon is produced every year in the U.S.

4. Bacon is old – Bacon is one of the oldest preserved foods in the world.

5. Bacon for making bombs – During World War II, citizens donated excess bacon fat to the army so they could make bombs using the extracted glycerin.
