Monday To-do: April 12

We’re pretty sure we still smell like bacon grease. We were summoned to help with some last-minute bacon stapling onto Nick Hamon’s Bacon Day 2010 creation: Bacon AT-AT.

Forty pounds of bacon, a couple of two-by-fours and a greasy pickup truck later, the Bacon AT-AT was released into the wild of Bacon Day at Agri Park Saturday afternoon. Fortunately, Nick got some photos of the thing before somebody’s dog ate half the bacon on the front left leg.

Some of the other Bacon Day contributions included bacon tofu, bacon strawberries, bacon doughnuts and bacon fudge. Mmm.

Who wants to rock tonight?

Smoke & Barrel is offering up plenty of rock with Austin’s The Blind Pets. Locals The European Sons open the show. Warning: The video embedded below features tattoos and panties. Just thought you should know in case your boss is against those kinds of things.

In other rock news, Saliva will be rocking George’s along with Since October and Anchored. Locals Open Addiction open up.

There’s more but all that bacon talk got me hungry. I’m going to lunch.
