There is an event going on today in New York City that mixes sports with bacon in an amazing display. Today is the Beer and Bacon classic, it is an event that travels to different baseball stadiums throughout the country boasting some of the finest bacon delicacies the mind can imagine, as well as an impressive variety of craft beers from small local breweries. I attended the event last year and immediately decided to return after tasting the bacon wrapped elk burger. The Beer and Bacon classic is a perfect time to get a chance to roam around a baseball stadium and grab some delicious eats, while playing games and chatting with friends. This year’s event has expanded to the upper decks so there will be much more to see, and more interesting bacon based snacks to try. This event is amazing for anyone who enjoys bacon and doesn’t mind sampling a few exotic beers and treats, but needless to say, this is not much of an event for a vegan, almost every meal available involves some sort of meat product with a bacon twist added. This year I am most excited to try out the bacon accented snacks, last year there was a bacon and ice cream shake that was quite tasty and interesting. There are millions of delicious treats that can be created with the addition of bacon, I am going to make sure I pace myself correctly and try out all of the event’s fantastic meals.
It’s interesting the ideas that come to mind while in the shower, it seems as though the most creative thoughts come out while showering. There is an interesting phenomena that happens when doing mundane tasks, the mind seems to reach into its most creative parts and form thoughts and ideas. It’s almost as if the mind knows what the task is so well that it starts doing its own thing. The show “30 Rock” actually addressed this phenomena in an episode titled “The Shower Principle,” in this episode one of the main characters had a shower installed in his office in order to increase his productivity. The Shower Principle may not actually be a term but the effects a combination of showering and mundane tasks have on the mind are unmistakable. I have personally written two short books in the shower, so I am a strong believer in “the shower principle,” and hopefully a future office shower owner. If you are ever in a pickle or need to make a quick decision, consider taking a shower, you may end up with an amazing solution.
