Bacon-Fest isn't just sizzle. It's a fundraiser for the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City, a medical-rehabilitation and vocational service provider that helps kids and adults lead more productive and independent lives. All that bacon-flavored goodness and Ameristar-brewed beer? That's just your reward for donating $40 ($50 at the door) per ticket. General admission to the event at 3010 Main starts at 2 p.m. For details, see baconfestkc.com.
