If you are a vegan, stop reading here and go eat some kale! The rest of you welcome to the best gift idea since the bacon flavored cologne! Baconfest!
Yes, Baconfest is a veritable blend of bacon, great chef’s bacon, amazing drinks, bacon, charity, bacon and yes the meat sweats! It’s perfect.
This year, the folks at Baconfest are offering up early bird pricing (though if you think about it, they should call it early swine?:). The point is they are offering up early bird/swine pricing, giving you the opportunity to give the gift of Baconfest at a discounted price!
Beat that Zales!
Early bird tickets will go on sale TODAY! Dec 7 (VIP are $175 and General Admission are $75 – full price is $200 and $100 respectively). This is the first year that GA tickets have gone on sale early at a discount in time for the holidays.
Last year we attended the VIP party and it was a mouth-watering festival of yummy goodness! By the time the GA opened up, we were full, happy and off to the t-shirt stand…yes they have Baconfest t-shirts that look like the Chicago flag!
Here are some more details about the 2016 Chicago Baconfest:
