I have always been a bacon girl. As a young pup, I remember heading to Denny’s every Sunday after church – no trip was complete without a side of crispy bacon.
Sausage? No thanks.
Bacon? Yes please.
When I recently found this subject line in my inbox, I was immediately intrigued;
“2010 Bacon Bash at Harris Grill”
Everyone knows Harris Grill sponsors the infamous Tuesday night ‘Bacon Night’ – complementary bacon is served up at the bar throughout the evening. I have never partaken in this Shadyside tradition but I have heard good things.
Therefore, it only makes sense that they take their bacon love to new heights during this year’s Bacon Bash.
Here are the details –
Name: 2010 Bacon Bash
When: Saturday, August, 14, 2010 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Where: Harris Grill
5747 Ellsworth Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15232
Tickets: $35 per person (EDIT: tickets can be purchased here!)
Ticket Includes: admission to the event, several bacon appetizers and small plates prepared by Harris Grill, one beverage ticket (draft beer or frozen cosmopolitan), optional entry in the bacon eating contest, and more.
Menu will include, but is not limited to: bacon pierogies, mini BLT sliders, bacon-wrapped meatballs, chocolate-covered bacon, bacon sushi, bacon horseradish spread with pretzels, bacon breadsticks, bacon shot glasses filled with cheesy mashed potatoes, Coco’s bacon cupcake, and bacon wrapped tofu!
Sponsors: Sugardale Foods, Harris Grill, Mr. Baconpants, Iowa Farm Families, and CoCo’s Cupcake Café
And guess what? I have two free tickets for Bacon Bash that I will so graciously be giving away to one lucky reader.
To note, Harris Grill also serves a mean frozen cosmo. Therefore, to enter this little giveaway, please leave a comment mentioning your most favorite summer cocktail. Enter up until next Monday evening (July 19th) at 11:00PM. I will pick a (random) winner shortly thereafter.
I actually will not be able to make it to this event so I am already jealous of the reader that gets to go. Bacon sushi? Bacon breadsticks? Sounds kind of amazing.
