Happy National Bacon Day.
Everything is better with Bacon, right? So how should we celebrate? According to the founders of Bacon Day, we are encouraged to eat a variety of bacon while watching Kevin Bacon movies, or movies with bacon in the title.
Kevin Bacon has filmed at least two movies in Virginia. "A Few Good Men" and "The Following." And who can forget, "Hollow Man" which had scenes shot in Alexandria.
Another Virginia connection is the website The Oracle of Bacon, which was created to help with the "6 degrees of Kevin Bacon" game that helps connect any celebrity to Kevin Bacon. Created and maintained by students at UVA, the site claims that 2.16 million actors and celebrities have an average 3 degree separation from Kevin Bacon.
So, go on your Netflix account and select "Footloose" while you munch on a BLT today. It doesn't get any better than that!
