While everyone has donkeys and elephants on the brain, we are living and breathing all things piggy – bacon to be exact. Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and Covenant House Florida are working hard on the much anticipated Bacon Bash of 2016 coming to Esplanade Park on Saturday, October 8th from 1 pm to 5 pm.
They’re giving the people what they want – a family friendly event with a healthy serving of all things bacon. Bacon is so intoxicating, it might as well have a legal age limit, but the FDA hasn’t caught on, so kids can have it too! General admission is free for all ages
, but for a $30 prepaid donation ($35 day of the event) guests 21+ can gain access to the VIP section
, sponsored by Orchard Supply Hardware. As VIP’ers, they can enjoy 10 complimentary adult beverage samples
(including craft beers and specialty spirits) and small bites with specialty seating.
Enjoy games and activities for guests of all ages while DJ Two Story Lori provides the tunes for the evening. The real lure of the evening is the bacon and there will be plenty of it. Every way you turn, pig inspired recipes will beckon and dishes, both sweet and savory, will start at $5.00.
Local chefs of participating restaurants and food trucks will compete for your votes. That’s right, attendees will cast their votes at Bacon Bash to select the winner(s) of Most Creative Use of Bacon and Best Overall Bacon Dish titles. The best voter is an informed voter, so be prepared to try bites from Stash Box BBQ, Himmarshee Public House, The Downtowner, Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox, Big City Tavern, WOK, New River Pizza and Grille, E & J Texas BBQ, Tip A Roo, Pirate Brother’s BBQ, Tuto’s Street Cuisine, Hickory Sticks BBQ, Ten Palms, Kitchen 420, Burger Fi, Hot Dog Hound, and Eats and Sweets.
