If you can, imagine a place where you're surrounded by all things pork.
Well that was reality at the sold-out Baconfest Chicago at UIC Forum yesterday.
The food, vendors, and all the other Bacon Nation-ers were amazingly hospitable. Kudos to all who attended!
I didn't get a chance (boohoo) to try all the food (56 restaurants and many vendors in all). But I did sample goodies from 694 Wine & Spirits, Lillie's Q, iNG, Longman & Eagle, and Terzo Piano just to name a few. I also drank, yes you heard right, drank bacon-esque beverages.
I left the event with a stuffed tummy and stuffed goody bag. I walked away with a Peace, Love, Bacon t-shirt and water bottle courtesy of the Illinois Pork producers.
For larger image views to salivate over and to get you geared up for next year, I've added my pics to our Flickr pool. If you were there, add yours.
