A day to celebrate one of Pittsburghâ€™s favorite foods, BACON!
Pittsburghâ€™s only bacon event, Bacon Bash, will take place at the Harris Grill in Shadyside on Saturday, September 17 from 12 pm to 3 pm. At last yearâ€™s Bacon Bash more than 185 people came to enjoy bacon. Event organizers Jason Mosley (better known as Mr. Baconpants) and the Harris Grill plan to take what they did last year and kick it up a notch.
â€œWith the Bacon Crisis upon us, we are going to need this day of celebration.â€ said Mosley.
This yearâ€™s Bacon Bash will be right in the middle of the Bacon Crisis. With the price of bacon reaching upwards to $7.00 a pound event planners said they were lucky to get the amount of support they did from sponsors.
â€œWhen I made it known that I needed bacon, I was surprised how many bacon purveyors stepped up to show support,â€ said Mosley.
Wrights Brand Bacon, Tender Belly, Sugardale and more are supplying the bacon for this years event. Not to be outdone, Miller Light will be sponsoring tee shirts for all bacon lovers in attendance.
Several bacon appetizers and small plates will be served at Bacon Bash. An exciting addition to this yearâ€™s Bash will be Maple Bacon Gelato from Bite Bistro in Bellevue, PA. As is tradition, the event also will feature the Bacon Eating Contest for a chance to win fabulous bacon prizes.
Tickets are $35 and go on sale online at MrBaconpants.com July 18, 2011. Bacon Bash is Pittsburghâ€™s only bacon enthusiast celebration and tickets are limited, so be sure to claim yours today.
