Bacon-Nation!

The Fifty/50 is back as a Baconfest Chicago Sponsor for 2015.  Owners Greg Mohr and Scott Weiner are bringing back their patented Bacon Bloody Mary – the Wobble Stopper.  This is a Bloody Mary so delicious that we’ve named it the Official Bloody Mary of Baconfest Chicago.  It never fails to let us down – most delicious Bacon Bloody Mary ever.

The “Wobble Stopper is The Fifty/50’s upgrade on the traditional Bloody Mary and is comprised of New Amsterdam Vodka; fresh & housemade Bloody Mary mix; and garnished with Nueske’s bacon. The Wobble Stopper’s glass is rimmed with a finely-ground, salty corn rim.

Thanks Fifty/50 for joining us again and sharing the Wobble Stopper with our guests.

Visit The Fifty/50 at 2047 Division Street, Chicago IL 60622 – Phone: 773-489-5050
