Get Your Bacon On!
Join us for the Chicago Bacon Takedown, where twenty local bacon gladiators will concoct the most mouthwatering bacon creations you ever dreamed possible using Hormel Black Label bacon as their main ingredient.
It's up to YOU to sample and vote on who reigns supreme- past dishes have included creamy bacon caramel ice cream, meaty bacon-tur-duck-en, spicy bacon infused vodka, delicious bacon cupcakes and more!
Strap yourself in and prepare to not only eat bacon delights, but also meet fellow bacon-lovers and gaze upon pork paraphernalia-clad fans- including walking strips of bacon, people wearing bacon beards, pink curly-q tails pinned to behinds. You never know what you’ll see...
Master of ceremonies Matt Timms will be handing out prizes to contestants with the best bacon dishes, but YOU will also have the chance to also receive a one-year supply of Hormel Black Label bacon!
Cost: $15 to taste and judge all the entries, portion of the proceeds benefit Feeding America.
