ACME HOTEL COMPANY is the Official Hotel of Baconfest Chicago 2014 and the co-host of the Bacon Month Kickoff Cocktail Party!

Bacon Month?  Yes!  Bacon Month!  Here at Baconfest, we’re always thinking of new ways to satisfy Chicago’s bottomless appetite for bacon.   We’re not content merely to saturate the city with delicious cured pork on the days of Baconfest itself; oh no!  This year, for the first time, we’re transforming April into Bacon Month with brand new bacon programming throughout the city.

To kick things off right,  we’re teaming up with ACME Hotel Company and The Berkshire Room to throw a swanky bacon cocktail party:


The Bacon Month Kickoff Cocktail Party

On Tuesday April 1, from 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM, three all-star Chicago mixologists will gather at The Berkshire Room in the Acme Hotel to share custom-crafted bacon cocktails with an intimate crowd of bacon devotees!

With your $30 ticket, you’ll get three creative bacon cocktails, a frosty can of Labatt Blue, bacon snacks from Berkshire Room executive chef Chris “Chip” Davies and executive pastry chef Chris Teixeira, as well as a Bacon Swag Bag care of ACME Hotel Company.

More details to come on the rest of Bacon Month, but here’s a sneak preview of some of the other programming on deck:

The Bacon Month Charity Dine Around:  Participating restaurants will place a Bacon Special on their menus for all to try throughout Bacon Month. Each restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of their Bacon Specials to our Charity Partner, the Greater Chicago Food Food Depository

ACME Hotel Company’s Baconmania:  Bacon is taking over at ACME for the month of April with Kevin Bacon movie-nights, bacon cocktail demos, bacon nail-art and more.

Whole Foods Market Bacon Events: we’ll have bacon-sampling and bacon chef demos at area Whole Foods Markets.

And MORE to be announced.
