Too much—far, far too much—has already been said about bacon. So, offered without comment: a celebration of International Bacon Day at the Swinery (also known, somewhat disturbingly, as the Temple of Porcine Love), including various bacon-filled brunch items, $5 bacon burgers, and $2.50 bacon dogs. (The Swinery's bacon dogs are not bacon-wrapped: They are 60 percent beef and 40 percent bacon, "whipped and piped" like a regular hot dog so that the bacon is inseparably incorporated.) Also: free bacon chocolate-chip cookies. And music. (The Swinery, 3207 California Ave SW, 932-4211, 10 am–3 pm)
