Bacon, Beyond Breakfast

Sounds like Chicagoans like their bacon. BaconFest Chicago’s 1500 general admission and 250 VIP tickets sold out in just a minute and a half – WOW! We were privileged enough to attend the celebration of bacon, where dozens of top Chicago restaurants brought the bacon – in very creative ways. While we can’t share the epic smell or enthusiastic chants of “bac-on, ba-con, ba-con!” we do have snapshots of some of the event’s fabulous dishes.

The Fifty50‘s Wobble Stopper Bloody Mary – 2047 W. Division Street

Old Town Social‘s Tijuana Dog – 455 W. North Ave

Pork belly & grit hash, smoked gulf shrimp and bacon vinegar sauce from Lillie's Q - 1856 W. North Ave

If you missed your chance to explore at this epic bacon expedition, never fear. Paciugo Chicago serves up Organic Maple Caramelized Bacon Gelato regularly. Stop in for your bacon fix!
