This weekend's most anticipated event...
**Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour, a much talked about event kicks off in Phoenix, Arizona this Sunday, June 7th from 1 PM to 5 PM. The price is $35 in advance and $40 at the door. This price includes a signed book, food, and two drink tickets. This event is being held at Renee's Grand Tavern. Meet the author of bacon blog, a blog that has attracted people from all over the world. This blog began as a joke, but Heather Lauer soon discovered the "bacon nation" and landed a book deal through it all. You know your bacon obsessed when you make a comment like this, "Even the left over grease is good to use..." or "I've experimented with it by putting it in brownies," both are definite health risks, taking a major toll on your body!

-There will also be a book signing in Glendale, AZ today from 2 to 3 PM at the Velma Teague Branch Library.  http://baconnation.ning.com/

Do you love to give? Do you have a taste for ice cream? Well then purchase ice cream for charity at Ben and Jerry's in the el Pedregal shopping center located in Scottsdale.  When you purchase the summer flavor, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. This runs daily through July 31st. Support HIV prevention programs and support services for people living with the HIV/AIDS. Sounds like a perfect excuse to eat ice cream, but support a great cause! All Ben and Jerry's will launch this flavor and raise money!  Read more about this at, http://finance.yahoo.com/news/THE-BATCH-IS-BACK-Ben-amp-bw-15309731.html?.v=1
