Son and his wife treated us to a weekend in the Rockies and knowing I'm a carnivore put the "Bacon Fest Tour" on our schedule. They go to Keystone to ski and know the area but Bacon Fest was new to all of us. Think country-western food fair. It ran for two days and we were lucky it did, and went both days. Day one was perfect weather which brought out gigantic crowds and long, long lines. At which time we opted to lunch at Kickapoo. Day two was terrible.. and perfect. The Rockies do that, one day it's sunny and 70, the next raining and 40. So no crowds, no lines and great potions. For $30 an adult gets a wrist band ($20 for those under 21) the band entitles you to all you care to eat different flavors and varieties of bacon at booths set up around the lodge court yard. The booths are sponsored by farm groups, co-ops, and distributors. You also receive four tickets to "specialty" or snack-sized bacon sandwiches, sliders, pepper poppers, bacon ice cream creations, and similar. Finally we received wooden tokens for bar drinks, wine or beer, all very good and large. The beers were 16 and 20 once-rs. We got wet, but ate until we were full and were able to do everything in under 2 hours. Great time was had by all, who stayed.
