Wing Zone celebrates National Bacon Day with ‘WidowMaker.’
Exclusive Brief: 

Often called “the gateway meat” for vegetarians, bacon has a certain allure that has earned it hundreds of menu applications and crazy iterations (think bacon-studded mac ‘n’ cheese and bacon-blended milkshakes). As with many popular ingredients, bacon now has its own day. While there’s some debate over the actual date—some say December 30 and others go for the Saturday before Labor Day—several brands are pushing their bacon-laden offerings this upcoming holiday weekend.
