If there's one thing there seems to be an insatiable demand for, it's bacon. To help give the public what it wants is BLT Week, from the same people who brought us the annual BaconFest celebration each January.
Daniel Romandia has more details in Sac Press:
The idea for BLT Week, which started in last year, came to Guido because he wanted to showcase the local talent and ingredients from farmers in the area. This year’s edition will run from Monday, July 15 through Saturday, July 20.
Throughout the week, chefs will engage in some friendly competition to create their own version of an American classic. Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. has revealed a BLT ravioli that will only be available for the week. Grange is adding many bacon-laden items to its menu – like a grilled wagyu BLT burger, a BLT omelet, and even a BLT cocktail. Pangea has their own version called the BSLT – a sandwich with half-inch thick house-smoked bacon cured with brown sugar and spices, steak, tomatoes and crisp lettuce.
At the end of the week, there will be the “Beer and Bacon on the Boulevard” block party to bring the festivities to a close. The party will be a BLT celebration and a fifth year anniversary celebration for Pangea.

Shoki owners close to signing lease for third location - The concept will be dramatically different from the two excellent ramen houses. This one will focus on breakfast and lunch, and will feature a fusion of American and Japanese cooking styles. In other words, you might get scrambled eggs with hints of Japanese flavors and ingredients. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
