BACON: Berkeley Art Crawl Open Neighborhood 

When: Sat., Aug. 18, 7-10 p.m. 2012
Price: free

How to draw a crowd when your business is located just a little bit off the beaten path? The proprietors of three West Berkeley businesses -- Local 123 Cafe (2049 San Pablo Ave.), Lanesplitter Pizza (2033 San Pablo Ave.), and Acme Bar (2115 San Pablo Ave.) -- found the answer: bacon. Berkeley's answer to Art Murmur (albeit more low-key and less gallery-based), Berkeley Art Crawl Open Neighborhood, or BACON, is a new art walk held on the third Saturday of every month. The second iteration, on Saturday, August 18, includes a pop-up barbecue with sangria specials on Local 123's back patio, and corresponds with the 200 Yards art show on display inside, while Acme serves bacon-themed cocktails and Lanesplitter hosts a live band and displays new art on its walls. Patrons can procure stamps at each business for discounts at the others. 7-10 p.m., free. 510-647-5270 or
