Today, I’m drowning my sorrows in bacon…

So, we’re hanging out at McCabe’s Irish Pub & Grill right here in Kitchener, Ontario. I was in K-town for the CMT country music festival to see my main man “Chief” Eric Church, the greatest country singer since Hank Williams Jr., last night under the hell-hot summer sun. But then it started raining alligators and catfish a couple hours before he was supposed to take the stage. There were thunderbolts and lightning, it was very, very frightening, and they decided to call the whole thing off.

Now, I never minded standing in the rain, but the last thing anyone wants is to be thunderstruck in the purple rain. So I’m a bit bummed out that Church wasn’t in session, but at least I’ve always got bacon:

They call this the Out of This World Burger, and it’s practically from another planet. You’ve got six strips of bacon, two pieces of peameal bacon, lettuce, onion and tomato on top of a flame grilled burger inside a bakery-style bun. Bro, if there was any more bacon on this burger, it would be on Epic Meal Time!

But even eight pieces of bacon can’t ease my troubles or take away all my sadness today. There’s a tear in my beer as I type this. 😦
