Bacon-Inspired Brews Festival

Bacon, Bourbon and Brews Festival has everything you need for a fun-filled, summer evening out: great food and locally crafted spirits and brews on Aug. 2 from 5 to 9 p.m. at Wingfield Park in Reno, Nev.. The event includes tastings of regional beers, a selection of fine bourbons and culinary creations built around bacon, along with live music, dancing, games and a silent auction. All proceeds benefit CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada, which has been providing free medical resources to Northern Nevadans in need for nearly 30 years. Tickets are $65 online or $75 at the door. | carechest.org
