The love of bacon has really caught on this year. First came a bacon bakery and now, a festival dedicated completely to the greasy strips of pork.
Dubbed the “candy of meats,” bacon will be celebrated at the Arena Event Space in Times Square on June 23. The event will feature restaurants like Tommy Lasagna, Lucky 777Chili Company and Little Town NYC.
Vendors will be offering bacon-prepared treats in all different ways. You’ll get your sweet, your savory, and who knows–maybe even a mixture. We hear bacon vodka shots will even be involved.
Tickets start at $25, which includes admission, 50 percent off craft beers, and one bacon vodka shot. For more ticketing information, check out iadventure.
