Did you hear about the Baconpocalypse? You wouldn’t be able to tell at the Bacon and Beer Classic at Citi Field. On July 26th, my husband and I had date night. I know! what shocks you more? escaping without the kids or reading Bacon and Beer in the same sentence!
We entered the home of the New York Mets and were handed these mini sized ceramic red cups and off we were to explore the entire stadium. What exactly were exploring? Bacon and Beer baby!
There were hundreds, yes hundreds of craft brews ready to sample, while New York City restaurants were set up all across the stadiums concourse serving exclusive dishes for the Bacon and Beer Classic. I even ran into Food Network personality Anne Burrell.
The music had me dancing, taking selfies and randomly posing in front of as many slabs of Bacon I could find. I even stood online to get a free Bacon backpack from The Baconeers and thanks to Yelp.com they gave me tons of swag when I mentioned that it was date night.
My tweet across the jumbotron. Me sneaking a kiss to my husband.
Will I go again? Absolutely! Even if you’re not a meat eater. The cold brewskies, music, games, live entertainment and crowd really made it the best outdoor event this year. To learn more about the Bacon and Beer Classic read at http://www.baconandbeerclassic.com/
