Felt some rage.. then i read:

TFA: "Neighbors claimed that the "porcine aroma" was overpowering and that grease was illegally disposed of in the sewers.Neighbors also say that they offered to buy the restaurant owner a new air filter -- but he declined."

Sounds like a dick.

The smell led to the revelation that the restaurant lacked "proper health permits" last summer.

You mean a restaurant can't operate without passing a health inspection? Say it ain't so!

I actually empathize with the neighbors here. I love bacon as much as anybody, but I wouldn't want to smell it all the time. That would become nauseating after a while

I had a maple bacon doughnut the other day, and was disappointed.  People, bacon is yummy but it doesn't always make everything better.

A BBQ rib joint opened in the lobby of my building.  The food is good, but I do not want to smell BBQ while still hungover at 8:00 am on a Monday morning.

I've actually been trying to figure out how bacon became this... thing... that it is.  Some "holy" food that everyone makes a huge deal out of.  The fact is, bacon is okay, but generally, it's almost all fat and greasy and unspectacular.  An entire restaurant dedicated to it sounds nauseating. (Never mind the lack of permits and health code issues.)

Why would you dispose of grease illegally in a sewer in CA? I would think that in California someone would PAY you to take it off your hands and make biodiesel.

Restaurant owner sounds like a dumbass.  Not dumping grease down the drain is food prep 101.

Biodiesel?  Hell, save that shiat and bottle it!

Ok, there probably is a very valid law against reselling what is "technically" a waste product but really?  Who the fark throws away bacon grease.  Save it in a jar, best frying fat ever.

Grease collecting services resell it for various uses.

There's really no such thing as 'waste' - with the right need, technology and economics, almost everything can be recycled.  Take cars for example, nearly every material in a car is recycled when they are scrapped.

Exactly, I want to smell this stuff when I choose. Having a nearby restaurant dedicated to it would be horrible.

Oh, and really like the Monday morning hangover comment. The damned second day always hits me the hardest.

I wish I could find the picture from the Simpsons episode "The Seven Beer Snitch" where Homer smokes the stick of butter.

Yeah, this guy is a TOTAL DICK. "I plan to reopen my food truck, once I can find another illegal kitchen to work out of."

Yeah, while I am all for BACON, this guy needs to ... oooo too tired for friday nvm

I honestly liked bacon before it was cool.

Wait, a second... you can CLOSE a restaurant because of the ODOR it emits?

Don't tell the people who live around McDonald's about that... my stomach turns in disgust when I walk 100 ft. from that grease induced fat hole.  If this is ACTUAL law... I want to see lawsuits brought against BIG time offenders, not mom/pops.

Well, there are other things in the article, such as this:

"Neighbors claimed that [...] grease was illegally disposed of in the sewers."

And the neighbors seem like pretty nice people since they're offering to pay for an air filter, so I have to believe them over the restaurant owner. But the Fark headlines are sexier when they're wildly inaccurate, so let's stick to our mission. No PETA bashing yet? Surely there's some way we can bring PETA into this?

I suspect it's more the pouring-grease-down-the drain, than the constant-smell-of-bacon that has doomed this restaurant in the eyes of the various legal entities involved.
 
2013-05-17 11:56:16 AM
I may be completely ignorant about this, but in my medical garden I use carbon filters to eliminate the smell. Wouldn't a carbon filter eliminate the bacon smell too? Guy sounds like a douche.

I suspect it was the lack of health permits.  Environmental issues tend to just be a fine.
