Labor Day is a time honored holiday that celebrates the men and women of America's working class. It's a day of reflection, a day in which we pause a moment to pay our respects to those whom, day-in and day-out, toil away at industries of various sizes to make life comfortable for the rest of us middle-class, office jockeys.
So what better way to honor your fellow working man that with the consumption of pork fat in non-traditional grub?
After all, this weekend is not just Labor Day. On Saturday August 30th, America also celebrates another long-standing cultural import: bacon.
International Bacon Day happens to always fall on the Saturday before Labor Day, and this year Rhino Doughnuts is celebrating with their Chocolate Bacon, and Maple Bacon confections.
Stop in for a cup of craft-brewed coffee, and a delicious chef-made Maple Bacon Doughnut - maple custard filled doughnut topped with caramelized Applewood smoked bacon. All made from scratch on site at Rhino's doughnut factory. Or be the toast of your friends and family by bringing a couple dozen to your Labor Day BBQ.
So this weekend skip the morning pilates class, and get bikini ready with an ample serving of pork fat on-top of sugar. We wouldn't have it any other way.
