Kevin Bacon at BaconFest. How perfect is that?

The actor, in town shooting a television pilot, stopped by the 12th annual event put on by Dad’s Garage Theatre this weekend.

“Never been to BaconFest in Alanta before,” he tweeted on Saturday. “What does one wear?”

Jeans and a t-shirt evidently. Or a bacon costume. Bacon posted this photo of himself on his blog and wrote, “Best BaconFest ever. Support Dad’s Garage.”

In other weekend sighting news, Justin Timberlake, Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams, in town filming “Trouble With the Curve,” headed to Fado in Buckhead Saturday night. A number of people tweeted photos but it was pretty dark in there. We’re working on finding a good one to post. This project has been shooting in numerous area locations, most recently at Turner Field last week.

Meanwhile at STK, Dallas Austin was serving as DJ for the evening and Jessica Alba stopped by for dinner. She’s here filming A.C.O.D. with Jane Lynch, Adam Scott and Amy Poehler. It was filming all last week at No. 246 in Decatur and we hear it’ll be heading back to the Atlanta Botanical Garden next.

So, what did you do this weekend?

Justin, Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams were at Fado on Saturday night. They were also with Jamal Anderson who used to play for the Falcons. Security was everywhere around Justin.

The Kevin Bacon news I want to know: his wife didn’t want to do “The Closer” anymore because she was in LA and he and the kids were in New York. Now that she’s wrapped up, if his series is picked up will he be filming in Atlanta?

(Second on my list would be what Atlantans think of her alleged Atlanta accent. Of course, Jan Hooks was told her accent sounded fake when she auditioned for “Designing Women.”)

Apparently the guy in the green shirt made it all happen, including showing Kevin and the cast around Dad’s Garage and backstage. Would be nice to have his job!
