The smoke from a wood-fire oven enhances meat with complex flavors and can create a smoke screen so that no one sees you eat an entire roast boar. Pig out with this Groupon.

The sizzling and crackling of meat, the taste of cold, frothy beer, and the dulcet sound of live tunes can only mean one thing: Bacon Fest is in town. In preparation, local restaurants are lining up in the parking lot at the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City to display their mind-boggling array of creatively bacon-centered dishes. Guests traipse amid the booths to sample the wares, drink beer, and bond over their mutual love of the treasured pork delicacy. The Josh Vowell Band and Baconator supply live music, and vendors such as Bakon Vodka, Fogo de Chão, and Paradise Locker Meats supply more palate-pleasing edibles. Fun contests abound, including a bacon-eating contest, a contest for the best bacon-themed T-shirt, and a contest to see who can turn lead into 24-karat bacon. A portion of the event’s proceeds goes to benefit the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City, which assists newly disabled adults and children with medical rehabilitation and job placement.
