“Bacon is one of the essentials for life to exist on earth.”

We’re almost positive we picked up that quote from an issue of National Geographic or we just made it up ourselves. Either way, bacon lovers should be ecstatic to know that The City Grill‘s Baconfest begins today and runs through to March 15, 2015.

If three courses is too much food for you, you can also order the dishes individually. Guests can also dive right into theme by imbibing the theme with bacon cocktails (or Swinetails as The City Grill is calling them) including:

Fizzy Piggy – bacon infused bourbon, orange juice, club soda
Hot Swine – bacon infused bourbon, maple syrup sriracha
