PIG out at BaconFest 2014

Join the rest of the swine-heads for fun and frivolity where pork is king! I'll be there by 1:00, come when you like and stay as long as you like. Text me for more info or if you need to find us past 1:00 that day[masked]-7645. And buy your tickets now!

-------------------------------------------------
Info from the Dad's Garage event page:

It's at the Masquerade Music Park and the event will be cooking up over 2,250 lbs. of bacon this year!

This outdoor festival is an unbridled bash filled to the brim with the 3 B's: BEER. BANDS. BACON. It's also a fundraiser for Dad's Garage (yes, we're a non-profit), so even if you're not in it to capture the world record for swallowing the most swine, you can rest assured that your cash is still going to a good cause.

We'll grease up the day at 1pm on Saturday, March 29th and go full boar until 6pm that evening with awesome local bands, hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city, troughs upon troughs of cold beer brought to you by PBR, sizzlin' bacon donated by The Vortex (and cooked by Thumbs Up), and more!

This year's GAMES and FUN include: Hobo Wine Tasting with the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, Chill the Eff Out with Lucky Yates, Terrible Caricatures, Dr. Boobies, M.D., Sanitary Smooches. Naughty Face Painting, Game On's Video Game Truck, An Adult Bounce House, Fitness Battalion's Fitness Challenge (winner gets a treat, loser gets a carrot), Mary Todd Hair and Beard Stylings, Palookaville Corndog Obstacle Course, and more!

This year's ENTERTAINMENT includes: Thimblerig Circus, Blast Off Burlesque, The Seed and Feed Marching Abominable, A Stand Up Comedy Tent, The Dirt Poets, and The Soggy Top Boys!

Other awesome folks providing SPECIAL TASTINGS and ACTIVITIES: Whynatte, Happy Hour Confections, Frozen Pints Ice Cream, Bone Lick BBQ (slow roasting our delicious whole hogs), Establishment, The Wrecking Bar, The Atlanta Rollergirls, Dough Bakery, Turner Broadcasting, and The Atlanta Freedom Band (providing G(BLT)Qs! What?! Yes!!)

This year's SILENT AUCTION includes: A pair of round-trip tickets on Delta Airlines and dinner for 10 at Chef Kevin Gillespie's latest restaurant, Gunshow! Additional silent auction items have generously been donated by Cartoon Network, FX's Archer, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters, Muss & Turners, Atlantic Station, and many more. All proceeds from the auction benefit Dad’s Garage Theatre Company.

      I didn't see anyone, and no one approached me. Carla did show up after I left and mayhaps others just came and went but I had a good time anyway :)
