Last week, Scene writer Kim Brown wrote about the bacon craze sweeping the country.

People can't seem to get enough of bacon, in everything from mayonnaise to chocolate bars, not to mention on hamburgers and with scrambled eggs.

Those on the bacon bandwagon should love this bacon dinner planned by the Tulsa Wine Club.

Mark Stenner of the Tulsa Wine Club said bacon will be in every course, including dessert, with wine pairings for each. The chef is Amanda Simcoe, cooking school director at the Stock Pot.

Cost is $65 per person for the dinner, which is on Feb. 27. For details on the time and location for the dinner or to reserve a spot, contact Stenner at
