What a fun event this is going to be.  We have a similar event in Los Olivos (wine country of SB county) called Bacon, Bourbon and Barrel.  The barrel is wine barrel tasting.  It is sold out the minute it is announced.  I love the menu you listed.  A

James Dray I will take your hand off if you reach for my last bite of bacon!!!

Roger D. Mucci it's the only reason I eat a BLT!

Marco Giancola I'm quite friendly with bacon, but haven't had any bourbon in years.

Sharon Tara I used to wrap the dove and quail breasts that Larry got in bacon. You can eat almost anything as long as it's wrapped in bacon. 

Ginny Gorman from what I hear, the seminars and tastings fill up quickly.

Hi Mary Yonkers I wouldn't mind trying some of the dishes!

Dianne Goode same here.  It would be wasted on me!

Sharon Lee hey, I'd go just to smell the bacon.

Scott Godzyk I love bacon too and boubon does make a good marinade.

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI I wish I'd never had even a slice of bacon but once you taste it.  It's like trying to eat just one potato chip. 

Kristin Johnston, Waukesha County Realtor 414-254-6647  when I think of it, bacon and bourbon go hand in hand. 

Linda Guess I think what works is "seldom."  Moderation works.

It seems so many places are including bacon in their recipes these days.  I recently saw a bacon and carmel shake on a menu but I wasn't brave enough to try it.  Sounds like a fun event.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington no kidding.  Maybe shrimp and scotch?  Dolphin and Dewars??

Ron and Alexandra Seigel and that's just part of the menu!!!

Marco Giancola yum, the bacon wrapped stuffed figs sounds so yummy.

Hi Kathy --- Beach Bacon and Bourbon sounds more appealing than that other BBB: Bed Bath and Beyond.

Sounds like an interesting festival, Kathy. Although this might be one I'd be passing on -- I don't particularly care for bacon (not even the smell of it) and as for bourbon... well, I don't drink any spirits. Of course, who knows, if I attended I might be converted!

Hi Kathy Streib - I haven't had bacon since 1986. I think I'd be safer having bourbon on the beach! This sounds like fun!

Good morning Kathy, this sounds like a fun event, even for those who don't eat bacon, they can double on the other B!

Oh Kathy - this all sounds delicious.  Add this to the fact that by this time in March it should be great warm weather.  This should be great.
