    Pork is a national treasure. In fact, American’s love pork so much there are several national holidays devoted to it. One of those being National Pork Month in October. There are many reasons to devote an entire month to such a delicious meat. For one, pork is one of the most versatile meats; it can be marinated, roasted, grilled, boiled, baked, fried, barbecued, and more! There are also so many cuts to prepare and enjoy. One of America’s very favorites is bacon! It's a fact, everything tastes better with bacon. Here at Isle of Capri® Casino Hotel Lula, we’re celebrating National Pork Month in the most delicious way, with lots and lots of pork specials. And yes, there will be bacon!

    The Beauty of Bacon

    We’ve been obsessed with bacon for quite some time. Bacon Mania took hold of our fair country back in the 80’s and 90’s, and we never looked back. We love bacon so much, we’ve even found ways to incorporate this delicious pork product into every part of our day. Bacon isn’t just for breakfast anymore, now we can savor bacon in our desserts and even in our drinks! Here are even more bacon-y facts:

    • The average American eats 17.9 pounds of bacon a year.
    • 43% of people would rather have bacon than sex.
    • 23% of men said bacon is their favorite fragrance.
    • 23% of people have wondered if “my partner loves bacon more than me.”
    • Choline is a macro nutrient found in pork and products like bacon. Studies show choline can boost the intelligence of an unborn child and decrease heart problems.
