Ambrosia for Burners. It has salt, fat, and protein, all of which are craved when the sun wakes you much too early after a night of hard partying. Even before the rest of the world became obsessed with this pork product, bacon was revered at Burn events. Bacon has inspired theme camps, mutant vehicles, and rock bands among sundry other children of that mightiest of meats. Not even vegetarians are immune from its charms at times, with many events catering to those dirty hippies with facon and gummi bacon. Its rising popularity in reality camp has prompted periodic discussions among the Burnier-than-thou set over whether bacon is ‘over,’ but its popularity seems unstoppable.
