Richmond Bacon Festival!!!

Please read these instructions carefully, as in the past there are people don't read these important notes and miss on important details.

I imagine this place will be super packed, so it will be extremely difficult to find anyone unless you recognize them, or have their phone numbers.


Where: We will meet up at the River City Diner outside entrance! (7 North 17th St) DO NOT wait at Main & 17th corner!!

When: Please be outside River City Diner from 1:45pm-2pm (During that 15 minute window, we will wait for others, meet and greet with each other).

 
If you are late, after 2pm please text  me at [masked] I will tell you where we are all at.

What I will be wearing: I can tell you since next Sunday is Game of Thrones' Season Finale. I will be wearing a Game of Thrones T-shirt!

    The food was good and the vendors were great. I think the only bad thing I had was a sausage from SausageCraft that was a little under cooked. The best thing there was the Buttermilk Chicken, Bacon and Waffle cupcakes. I'm looking for that recipe ASAP.

    Met some really awesome people at the Tobacco Company last night! This looks like a really fun event, wish I could make it!

    June 8, 2013

  • Michelle

    Just to let you guys know, there is a very high expected turn out for this so it's probably better to go as early as possible before the lines get outrageous and the food runs out. I'm probably going around 11:00 just so I can find parking. If I'm still at the event at 1:45 I'll meet at the designated spot to say hello.

    2 · June 7, 2013

    • Don

      Which is EXACTLY why I posted a later time. I don't want take chances being late hosting but I probably will be there earlier as well.

      June 8, 2013

    • Don

      BTW Michelle any plans for the movie Internship?

      1 · June 8, 2013

  • Dawn

    Looking forward to this especially the after-party. I will probably be there much earlier than the group but will come meet you guys at the designated spot and time. I heard on the radio this morning that it is a cash only event (atm on site will be provided) and that we are recommended to bring lots of ones lol. Let the fun begin w/lots of bacon and beer :)

    Oh. My. Goodness. There's already plans for an after party!:
    The Official Bacon Festival After-Party starts at 5 p.m. at On the ROX at 119 N. 18th St.

    "Guess what bacon-lovers, there's now an official Richmond Bacon Festival After-Party, so the fun doesn't have to stop when the festival ends. http://www.richmond.com/food-drink/dish/article_5fb5d96c-cd39-11e2-97eb-001a4bcf6878.html "

      Trying to picture what a bacon after party would consist of.

  • nfp

    I'm curious to know how they will serve us maple syrup or/and scrambled eggs to accompany (if anything) said bacon samples. . . tehehe
    waffles? pancakes? paper cones? condiment cups? mini skillets?!
    Anything could happen! l0l
