Baconfest 2009


Sorry for the late notice.  The inaugual Bacon-Fest is this weekend right here in the home of pork BBQ: Kansas City.

For a $30 ticket you’ll be treated to:

•Samples and cooking demos from the two local guys behind the world-famous Bacon Explosion, a bacon-stuffed, bacon-wrapped sausage delicacy.

• BLTs and bacon and pulled pork sandwiches with hot barbecue sauce and slaw (from Adam’s Rib in Overland Park).

•Chocolate lava cake with bacon ganache (whipped up by a chef at Ameristar casino).

•Maple bacon ice cream (courtesy of Murray’s in Westport).

•Bacon-infused vodka (from the Drop in midtown) and, for the first 100 people, bloody Marys with a bacon, smoked turkey, pepperoncini and olive skewer (from Belly Up BBQ).

Other food will include pizza (topped with bacon, natch) from Northern Lights Pizza and bacon breakfast sandwiches from Wendy’s. Boulevard Brewing Co. will serve beer (no bacon flavor here).

And of course there’ll be a performance by the Kansas City band Bacon Shoe, which, if we understand this correctly, has two guys rapping and a third guy wearing a dog head while frying up bacon on a grill. (Chatlin says the group is funny but "kind of vulgar. …We might have earplugs there for people who can’t handle it.") Another band, Black Tie Propaganda, will play, too.

Other entertainment: a bacon-eating contest (entry fee: $5) and a bacon recipe contest ($10; bring a dish with bacon as the primary ingredient).

Attendees will get Bacon-Fest T-shirts. And you never know, a real live porker may be on hand for photo ops … and kissing.
