Does Boise just left bacon or is a national phenomenon? I know by a not so reliable source that Boise ranks under 5% of the national average popularity-wise but who believes polls. It's obvious we didn't get the memo because we have another festival surrounding bacon.

Sockeye Brewing is hosting their 4th Annual Boise Bacon & Beer Festival this weekend. The Bronco game is Friday night which is perfect for a celebration party at the largest venue in the Treasure Valley, Expo Idaho.

Sockeye moved this event to Expo Idaho making it bigger and better than ever. I was checking on tickets and saw the that Sockeye has teamed up with Cornhole Idaho for this event. Cornhole Idaho will host a two-person team cornhole tournament with tons of prizes. Cornhole is definitely a thing! Go practice, get your cornhole game on and win some cash this weekend!
