Save the Date for Baconfest 2013

Last year's Baconfest sold out faster than you can say pork belly and if you're one of the baconaholics who missed it or is salivating at the mouth for more bacon, you'll want to mark your calender for the recently announced 5th Annual Baconfest Chicago 2013 coming on Saturday, April 20th at the UIC Forum (725 West Roosevelt).
