Oh yes.  You’ve seen the tweets.  You heard about it on Facebook.  It’s true.  Damn right.

The third Baconfest Satellite Dinner will be a collaboration between the Southern’s Cary Taylor and Eve’s Troy Graves – a five-course bacon feast.  I am giddy just thinking about it.  You may remember Troy from such events as WINNING A FREAKING GOLDEN RASHER at the Publican VIP Cookoff last October.   He and Cary are cooking up an unbelievable array of bacon-treats for you.

Sponsors Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats and Templeton Rye Whiskey will be fattening up the deal with their sweet sweet bacon and fiery spirits.  Plus Santome Prosecco by way of friends of Baconfest Candid Wines.
