Are you one of those people who believes that bacon makes pretty much everything better? How about beer? Beer makes everything better too, doesn’t it? So what could be better than bacon and beer? Not much that I know of. Does this sound like something you might enjoy? Then keep reading.
Last year I told you about the 1st Annual Bacon & Beer Classic, which debuted at Safeco Field last May 17th. This event of gastronomic glee paired local craft beers with tantalizing snacks, each one featuring bacon as a main ingredient. Well, this celebration of the best way to tax your liver and harden your arteries is returning to the Safe, this year on May 2nd.
The way some events are named sometimes baffles me. Golf provides some of the better examples: ‘The Cadillac Classic’? That sounds more like a new Cadillac model to me than a golf tournament. How about ‘The John Deere Classic’? Are we golfing or competing to see who can mow their lawn the best here? I think the name of an event, even a ‘Classic’, should reflect what you can expect to find at that event rather than who’s sponsoring it.
You enjoy good craft beer, don’t you? I mean, you’re here reading this article, so I would suspect you do. I also suspect you enjoy good food as well; perhaps even bacon. Would I be correct? Well, do you have plans for Saturday, May 17th? If you didn’t before, you do now. The Bacon and Beer Classic is coming to Seattle’s Safeco Field on Friday, May 17th and, with a name like ‘Bacon And Beer Classic’, I’m sure you have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
