Baconfest Atlanta, March 31, 2012

Baconfest is back for its 12th year at Dad’s Garage. It takes place on Saturday, March 31. This festival has three of the essential B’s for a successful even: Beer, Band and of course, Bacon.

Festivities start at 1pm on Saturday, March 31th and go full boar until 6pm that evening with four awesome local bands, hilarious booths (like Hobo Wine Tasting and Dr. Boobies) manned by the best improvisers in the city, and troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon. There will also be all sorts of awesome entertainment (like eating contests and improv games) as well as a silent auction, and even a slow smoked whole hog for those of you that want to put in a little extra to really pig out.

They sold out last year, and figured they’d give everyone a shot to get in on the hot pork-on-pork action early this year. Don’t get stuck on the wrong side of the pen this year!

Portioned Porking ($25 online): For the average Joe that’s new to the bacon guzzling world. Admission to the festival, 5 game tickets, and three cups full of beer, bacon or both.

Bottomless Bacon ($45 online): For the professional piggy that really knows how to shovel it in. Admission to the festival, unlimited game playing, and unlimited beer and bacon.

Still not enough swine? Go Whole Hog! Literally! For $40 more, upgrade from ‘Bottomless Bacon’ and ham it up with some serious style. A whole pig roasted to perfection by P’cheen, several kegs of delicious high gravity beer, and some exotically flavored bacon that only the ‘Whole Hoggers’ have access to.

Buy tickets:

This festival lasts from 1-6pm on Saturday, March 31th at Dad’s Garage Theatre.

  • GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY. They sold out last year and had no tickets left at the door.
  • It’s a darn good idea to take MARTA or a taxi cab.
  • This event is RAIN or SHINE. Sorry, NO REFUNDS or EXCHANGES.

    It’s a very good drink. I’ve been sick lately and I’ve been wanting a better drink to just grab. My dad has diet coke cans in the fridge 24/7 and sometimes I will just grab a coke can because it’s cold and easy to grab, not because I really want it. Not a good idea for multiple reasons. One is that even though it’s diet, Coke is actually dehydrating you. Also I don’t always finish them… I’m starting to not be able to stand the syrupy unnatural taste in it… and I can no longer drink it from the can, it needs ice to really stand out as something drinkable. Perhaps then the ice will melt and I’ll get SOME water out of the ordeal.

    The Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale looked amazing when I was sick in the grocery and had just picked up my puffs tissues and two cantaloupes. I saw that and my eyes lit up… I was looking for something sparkling – check. I love ginger ale – check. I love green tea – check. I needed vitamin C – Check. Easy to grab in a can? – check.

    I do need to add however that no soft drink is supposed to be completely healthy for you. This has a lot of sodium and the regular version has high fructose corn syrup.(High fructose corn syrup is not a very good thing for you.) and many calories. I think the diet doesn’t have that, but I didn’t check the label very patiently while I was in the store or go to look for diet.

    If you’ll search youtube or online… they’ve been having a battle with the feds who are getting on their backs for the vitamin C and antioxidant claim, stating that basically ‘soft drinks’ shouldn’t be good for you. Quite a dumb reasoning really… But the feds try to get rid of a lot of good things. So this is becoming a hard to find drink, you might want to stock up just in case. Wish Canada Dry’s website had a store locator for their products.

    But for now, I really do love this stuff, and I’m glad to have a delicious, semi-good for me drink that I’ll actually grab and not regret drinking! Yum.

    The inaugural Georgia Kite Festival in Centennial Park on May 15th was a day of relatives fun,thrilling live entertainment, attractions for kids, interactive games and far more. With plenty of over 5,000 families from across Georgia attending, the highlight of the day was Brookwood Split’s show — with several hundred dancers showing their stuff to the steady beat of the band, it was difficult to discover a kite flyer for most of the show.
