Some things just go better together - Peanut Butter and Jelly, Ice Cream and Cake, Captain and Tennille. Let’s add another pairing to the list. The second annual Bourbon and Bacon Fest happens Saturday, January 21, at McNichols Civic Center Building and we can’t wait.

This unique event will bring together two great tastes in a variety of ways. Sample food from the area’s best restaurants with premium whiskeys and succulent bacon used in the dishes. There will also be samples of premium bourbons and whiskeys along with smoky pork goodness.  Enjoy such tasty treats as bacon mac and cheese, bacon cupcakes, and bourbon and bacon milkshakes.

Lee, Rebecca Creek, Solera and Templeton Rye. Restaurants include Milk & Cake, Jill’s Bistro, Russell’s Smokehouse, River and Woods, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Southern Hospitality, and range. This is just a partial list. To see the full lineup, visit the website.
