Hi Bacon Nation,

We know January must still feel like a long way off, so consider this an early warning to “Save the Date!” The fourth and final installment of the Baconfest Chicago Satellite Dinner Series will be held at Three Aces on Monday January 14th.

The Three Aces team, led by Chef Matt Troost, won the Golden Rasher award at last April’s Baconfest Chicago for Most Creative Use of Bacon (Dinner Session).  Their bacon “shake ‘n bake” with bacon bolognese and a vanilla-bacon-bourbon milkshake was simply mind blowing and wowed the judges and guests alike.

THREE ACES – 1321 West Taylor Street Chicago, IL 60607 (312) 243-1577

Featuring Baconfest Sponsors: Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats, Templeton Rye and a special guest sponsor Greenbush Brewery who will be pouring a variety of their seasonal ales. Oh yeah!!

Details: Cost, menu, exact start time, how to reserve, etc. are still being ironed out, but rest assured we’ll let you know as soon as these details are nailed down. But for now, SAVE THE DATE: Monday January 14th!

Bottom-line: Three Aces is a fantastic place. Great people, great food, amazing beer menu and fun atmosphere.  And it’s fitting that the last stop on the Satellite Dinner tour is ending so close to the UIC Forum, the site of Baconfest Chicago 2013 on April 20th.  Come join us on January 14th as we celebrate the final Satellite Dinner of the season!

Here was their award winning dish and a shot of their 2012 Baconfest team:

A little about Three Aces from their Facebook Page:

“The Italian countryside meets the American farmhouse…in Keith Richard’s basement bar.”

Matt Troost and the team have created a bar in the tri-taylor neighborhood that speaks to our hearts.  Rock ‘n roll music, rich pork-laden dishes, stellar pizzette and potent cocktails.  Their patio is unbeatable in the summer and their bar is a craft-beer-stocked refuge all winter long.  Go for dinner or drinks and don’t’ forget to tell them that Baconfest sent ya.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Little Italy at 1321 W. Taylor Street. For more information, please call (312) 243-1577 or visit online at www.ThreeAcesChicago.com.
