Time Out says

As Chicago is the hog butcher for the world, its annual celebration of all things bacon—with bites, cocktails and beer galore—is an unforgettable event. Plus, all the pork-based gluttony benefits the Greater Chicago Food Depository, so you can feel slightly better about pigging out for an entire afternoon. Grab tickets for either the lunch or dinner spread, where you'll find creations from the likes of Imperial Lamian, Cafe ba ba Reeba!, Piece Pizzeria and Brewing, Bar Roma and more local restaurants and chefs.


Event website:
$60–$85, VIP $160
