Diary of a Bacon Pimp 8-23-10.

Greetings Bacon-nation,

Lot’s happening here this August at Baconfest Chi Central, or the BCC as we like to call it.

Our first Satellite Dinner at Chalkboard is sold-out …unless we add another night (cue: sinister laugh!!!!).

We’re gearing up to announce the next series of Chef/Resto partners for the BFC Satellite Dinners this Fall.

And most excitingly, after months of venue visits and number crunching, we’re razor close to locking our date and venue for BACONFEST CHICAGO 2011 – Revenge of the Belly.  (Just kidding, that’s not really our new tag-line… hmmm but what should our tag-line be??  I smell a Facebook contest?!?!?!)

Anyway, stay tuned for those announcements…. and let the anticipation officially begin.

But meanwhile, ever eager to keep you bacon addicts in your fix, we at BFC wanted to let you know about this new paring of discount specials for Baconfest Chicago Members at Paddy Longs.  According to Chris from Paddy Long’s, this summer’s ALL YOU CAN EAT PIG ROAST special was like off the charts amazing and that literally hundreds of you have been coming in and taking advantage of the Baconfest Chicago 1/2 off promo discount.  That is SO AWESOME!

Paddy’s is happy, we’re happy, you’re happy.  Everybody wins.

In that spirit, Chris has decided to offer still more bacon-bounty to you zealous bacon argonauts.  Here are his details:

For the rest of August and all through September Baconfest Chicago members can get our beer and bacon tasting for $20 (normally $35). That’s a 43% discount! Our tasting includes 5 delicious cuts of bacon paired with 5 craft beers. Featured bacons include: Irish Bacon, Cracked Pepper Bacon, Danish Bacon, Hickory Smoked Bacon & Brown Sugar Bacon.

The tastings are Saturdays at 7PM and Sundays at 2PM. All they need to do is go to paddylongs.com where they will see the schedule and click on “I have a promo code.”  Or visit www.bookwhen.com/beerandbacon to reserve.  The Promo Code is “Baconfest”.

In addition, their ALL YOU CAN EAT PIG ROAST special for Baconfest members ($12.00 best deal in town) will also stay in effect til the end of September.  NOTE:  PIG ROASTS are now Fridays at 7pm.  Visit www.bookwhen.com/pigroast to reserve.  The Promo Code is also “Baconfest”.

Oh, and check out this great write-up of the Paddy’s Pig Roast in Gapers Block last week.

Not that anyone reading this should need any convincing to visit an ALL YOU CAN EAT PIG ROAST!!!!!

Ok, there you have it – PIG, PIG and more PIG.  God I love this …. job.
