Baconfest 2011 Set, More Tickets, More Bacon

Remember Baconfest? When tickets sold out in minutes for last April's bacchanal of all things pork belly at Logan Square's Humboldt Park's classy but creaky Stan Mansion, the organizing Triumvirate was nearly run from town by angry, slobbering, ticketless mobs, ignorant of the nascent Bacon Backlash.

Never again. The principals, who've just announced April 9 as the date for the sequel, have taken steps to see at least 2,000 folks get in by hosting the event at the much more spacious UIC Forum.

Participating chefs haven't been set yet, but I'm told they're shooting for 45, and setting up a free vendors' area. Tickets go on sale in early 2011.

Can't wait that long? Tickets are still available for Baconfest satellite dinners at Paddy Long's (10/13) and the Southern (10/26).
