Greetings Bacon-Nation,

Well, in the wake of last May’s Paddy Long’s 48hr BACONFEST CHICAGO’s member offer (which was a great success), this just in from our friends at PADDY LONG’S:

Hi Andre,

I hope the summer is treating you well. I wanted to reach out to you with another offer for Baconfest Chicago members. All the Baconfest members that have been in here raved about our bacon tasting last May so we wanted to get another offer out to them.

We are running an ALL YOU CAN EAT PIG ROAST each Friday and Saturday @ 7pm-10pm.  We think it’s a real pig-worthy event. We roast and baste the pig in Austrian Pilsner and bacon-fat. It has a weave of hickory smoked bacon on it’s back and when its done we bring it into the bar so people can see it. Our chef then carves it up in the bar and people can try pulled pork sandwiches or whatever cut of pig they choose. This is an all you can eat deal!

So it’s an all you can eat pig roast buffet served up with sides of potato salad, barbecue beans and coleslaw. 

Normally it’s $22 for civilians, BUT for Baconfest Chicago members we propose a price of $12. Your members don’t even have to reserve, they can just come to Paddy’s and tell the greeter they are a Baconfest Chicago member to get their discount.  Or to be sure of a place, they can book online at To get the discount on-line, the Promo-code is “baconfest”.

BTW they can wash it all down with 1/2 Liters of Trumer Austrian Pils for $4.50 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Starts this Friday (7/16)
and runs til the end of the Summer.  Let me know if this is something you think the Baconfest Chicago folks are interested in and if you have any questions about this event.

Cheers, Chris


uh…. YES, Chris, the answer is YES we are in fact “interested.”

Well Bacon-Nation, $12.00 for an all you can eat Pig Roast – simply by dropping the name “Baconfest Chicago”.  NO RSVP necessary.

FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS from 7pm-10pm ALL SUMMER.  I mean… that’s an amazing offer.  Get a group together, bring friends – look cool by busting out your secret “I’m with Baconfest Chicago” password for a hefty VIP discount.

And having spent some quality time at Paddy Longs’s as of late, I can tell you that you won’t find a more fun place to kick back a pint or three from their extensive beer selection, and enjoy some ALL YOU CAN EAT PIG ROAST action.

Bacon-Nation, this is Andre Vonbaconvitch saying “DO NOT PASS THIS UP!”  You have all summer!
