Bacon and Beer at Rusty Bull Brewing Co.
If you're a human being and not a robot or extraterrestrial we're assuming you like bacon and beer. Head to Rusty Bull from 5 to 9 p.m. for brews paired with a bacon dish from Swig & Swine's mobile kitchen and a boozy maple bacon donut from Glazed. Swig & Swine is also partnering with Cowboy Cauldrons to introduce bacon weave smores — gooey marshmallow and chocolate inside juicy pieces of bacon woven together. Sold.
