Here it is: Give Baconfest tickets to your loved ones for the holidays.

If you are a TL:DR kinda person, you can go ahead and click on that button to buy the perfect gift for the bacon lover you love. The tenth annual Baconfest Chicago is coming April 6 & 7 at the UIC Forum and they won’t want to miss it.

If, on the other hand, you need a little listicle-style persuasion, read on!
