    Mmmm. Bacon. NBC 7's Whitney Southwick speaks with Robert Esparza and Frank Miller about the 2nd Annual Hormel Black Label BaconFest happening at NTC Liberty Station on Aug. 30, 2014.

    More than 20 local eateries will unite this Saturday for a tasty trifecta of hog wild fun that includes bacon, beer and bands at NTC Park Liberty Station.

    From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Preble Field will turn into piggy paradise for the 2nd Annual Hormel Black Label Bacon Fest, a celebration dedicated to arguably the greatest meat of all time.

    The sizzling shindig includes more than 20 San Diego eateries serving creative bacon-themed dishes, including South Paw Social Club’s “Elvis” sandwich, which combines peanut butter, banana and homemade bacon jam on grilled bread.

    The Blind Burro will pig out with bacon ceviche, a mix of Applewood smoked bacon, avocado and pico de gallo with housemade chips. Meanwhile, Bub’s San Diego will represent with the ultimate carnivore treat: chicken wings wrapped with bacon.
