The title alone is enough to make me drool. Four bacon-centric courses, four courses of Bourbon, topped off by sparkling wine. You might want to have a designated driver lined up. Buy your tickets here.

The quintessential mid-atlantic breakfast meat will be given the royal treatment here, dolled up by the festival’s chefs, who have ushered scrapple into the realm of fine dining with variations including buffalo, duck, rattlesnake, goose, antelope and rabbit scrapple, and even a dessert scrapple. Wash it down with sparkling wine from Reichsrat von Buhl. Get tickets here.
