That is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outraged fellow diners—well, you get the idea.
With Earth Day on Sunday, I wonder, do you doggie bag?
Before I left for Baconfest, I packed my usual tote bag and water bottle, plus a couple of dozen of lightweight containers saved from Whole Foods bulk buys. As much as I love to eat—and drink—I know my limits. And from years of professional experience, I knew I'd be testing them at this event. I'm no Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas, the 98-pound champion competitive eater. So as I tasted, I saved my leftovers, which leaves my palate better for judging too.
I was very happily surprised to see compost bins at Baconfest.
