On Saturday, an Uber dropped me off in front of a crowd outside Paramount Studios, which I assumed to be the line to Bacon Fest, but alas, it was PETA Protesters.
As an ex-Vegetarian, I get it 110%. But as a human that was trying to enjoy Bacon Fest in a responsible "I'm mostly drinking here/only buy organic meat" way, it was a huge bummer. Like best tip in the world: Do not get dropped off into a group of protesters on your way to a pork festival cause it will 110% harsh your mellow. They weren't even being aggressive, which made it worse. I mean, better for their cause 110% (this post will now have "110%" added to the title) because when they whispered, "Just think about what you're doing" I REALLY DID THINK ABOUT IT.
And then went and ate a bunch of bacon because 95% of the vendors were locally sourced pork.
And felt bad.
But totally didn't because I ate a bunch of Weetos (not the cereal, BTW) and drank a bunch of PINEAPPLE ALE.
PINEAPPLE ALE. YES. THAT IS A REAL THING. BASICALLY HEAVENLY VACATION CLOUDS WRUNG THEMSELVES OUT OVER MY GLASS AND I DRANK THAT SHIT NINE TIMES OVER. BECAUSE IT WAS DELICIOUS HEAVEN VACATION JUICE. AND THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE THAN WINE THAN A VACATION. SO VACATION JUICE IS VALUED IN THESE PARTS.
Ace Ciders' Pineapple Cider is the first of its kind, and one of the best things I've ever tasted.
