After you attend a picnic called “The Great Big Bacon Picnic” you say things like “What a ride” afterwards. You’re in a different state. You’re not the same person you were when you walked into that picnic. Your taste buds are going wild. You tell yourself you can’t eat anything else. You need a nap.
Brooklyn’s FIRST bacon festival, The Great Big Bacon Picnic, happened May 16th and May 17th. The event featured three different sessions of inspired bite-sized bacon dishes with the best in craft beers and local craft spirits, giving bacon lovers a truly unique culinary experience. Also, The Great Big Bacon Picnic had the FIRST EVER “Bacon Bar” – yes, a bar supplied only with different varieties of bacon. I won’t tell you how many times I stopped by that bacon bar.
(This is 1/3rd of the bacon bar!)
There was even a “Boss Hog” awarded to Bareburger who received the highest percentage of Licks (votes) for all the sessions. Other awards went to Streets who had a Tuna-Bacon-Truffle Roll With a Roasted Jalapeño- Avocado Creme Fraiche and a Kimchi Aioli. Goodness, that was good. For Creativity URBO won with their Smoked Bacon Stuffed Oreos which was well deserved. I wanted to go back for Oreos every 2 minutes but I feared they would tell me “no more!”.
