National Bacon Day Festival Report Part 1!

It was a hot day filled with sun, fun, and more bacon than a Charlotte’s Web convention!

Sports Com was the site for this tasty and unique festival this past weekend, and yours truly was on hand to see the sights, sounds, and smells of one of the world’s greatest foods!

There was so much to see. Arts and crafts. The most food trucks I have seen in one places in Murfreesboro! (surprising since it was on city property) Even some live music under one of the pavilions.

There was a lot of people there in the early part of the day. I’m not sure if the crowd capacity was adequately prepared for. I didn’t see anyone directing traffic. There was a huge field available for parking near the festivities, but towards the entrance people were parking on the curbs, in the medians, on the grass…just everywhere. Better signage and some folks directing traffic next year would be an improvement. Also, several of the trash cans stayed overflowing, and I never saw anyone going around picking up loose garbage. These are some minor points however, that I am sure will be addressed next year.

There were too many vendors for me to really spend time there (or here) talking about each one. Instead, this is going to be a mostly pictoral report. Owner info will be in the captions for each, and give them all your love and attention. Apologies to anyone I don’t mention here. There were more vendors than I had time to cover, and I tried to concentrate on food thingies.I’m gonna split the galleries up into two posts. Look for the next one on Wednesday!

Hello everybody!Just wanted to “drop a line” that HHH has to take a break to take care of some personal business for about a week. Selling the house is taking up all my time.Reviews of Acapulco Burrito, Battle of the Burgers, and more are going to come a little slow, but they are still coming.Keep on making lunch not war and I’ll be back up to speed shortly.



Sweet potato hash and a cappuccino in one of the most delightful historic settings in Rutherford County. Don’t have time to sit? Visit the take home display for something on the run. You’ll be glad you did.Make lunch not war!



About to eat breakfast at The Tasty Table. Check out this menu. ZOMG! Come on in and get one of the best breakfasts in town.



Diabetic friends and followers, DO NOT order a sugar free slush from Sonic.I was very misinformed when I asked before I ordered, but luckily a follower who works for Sonic helped set the record straight! Gonna chalk it up to an honest mistake, but if I hadnt checked my messages before I finished this thing, it could have been really bad.Worse on my part, I passed that info on to all of you before I fact checked it. Not like me at all, I just took their word for it.I deeply apologize to all my followers with Type 1 and 2 that depend on me for accurate information. I am very sorry.
