As amazing as it would be to think that a real Bacon Flavored Marshmallow Peep exists, these faux Bacon Peeps were created as part of a Peeps Diorama Contest back in 2010.
Artist Chloe Wise created this sculpture of a Jewish Star (AKA Star of David) out of delicious crispy Bacon! You can see this amazing (and tasty) artwork as part of The Last Brucennial group art exhibit on now through April 4th, 2014 in a huge street level space located at the corner of 837 Washington and West 13th Streets. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 12 Noon to 6 PM. Watch for further coverage of our visit to The Last Brucennial coming to The Gig in the next few days!
I would eat him!
Three Studies of Lucian Freud, a 1969 triptych by Francis Bacon of his friend and artist Lucian Freud, sold for $142.4 million at Christie’s Tuesday night. The unknown buyer won the piece after six minutes of “fierce bidding.”
Thanks to both Geoffrey and Thomas for Encouraging me to Post this as a Bacon Thing!

Apparently, there is something called the International Bacon Film Festival taking place at the Sunshine Cinema on East Houston Street on October 17th, 2013. But I can’t find any other information about it on the Interwebs. So, there you go!
August 31st is International Bacon Day! Did you know that? I was actually unaware of the pending festivities until someone pasted a photo this rad Bacon Wrapped Car on my FaceBook page. Apparently Ford Fiesta drivers now have a new way to express their Bacon love! The automotive giant is offering buyers of 2014 model Fiesta the opportunity to have their new cars wrapped in one of four vinyl graphics, each featuring delcious Bacon. Designs range from a few bacon racing stripes to a hog-wild helping of bacon graphics wrapped around the entire car. This is definitely not a joke and you can check out all of the Bacon Designs on Ford’s Fiesta Graphics page, at This Link!
