When: Sun., Sept. 22, 11 a.m. 2019
The typical brunch menu makes you choose between the two stalwarts of breakfast: bacon and sausage. You can opt to pay extra and get both (that's a pro-tip, Tex), or you can go to Bacon and Brunch Fest to load up on on the flashy choice. Salty, crispy bacon is the heart of this brunch extravaganza, which starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday, September 22, at Ballpark Village (601 Clark Avenue; www.stlballparkvillage.com). Restaurants and food trucks, including Yolklore and Super Smokers BBQ, will be slinging strips all morning, and there's even bacon in many of the cocktails. There will be non-bacon dining options as well, and proceeds go to CHAMP assistance dogs, which places service dogs with disabled people. Tickets are $10 to $250.
