What: The Bacon, Sports & Beer Celebration is an opportunity to celebrate three of the greatest things in life. Taste samples of bacon inspired creations from over 30+ different restaurants, beer samples from 30+ craft breweries, all while in a fun, social, and sports themed environment.
Attire: When is dressing up not fun? Never. Wear your best or most random jersey or sports attire. We are going to have a photo booth and be taking pictures and videos to put on social media so rep your fandom, go hard in the paint, and have fun with it. We’ll be awarding the Bacon Bro and Bacon Babe of the celebration to the people who look the best.
What’s this sports goodness you speak of? On top of having everyone rock jerseys we are going to have Nerf games, pop-a-shot, TV’s with the games on, sports trivia, and we’ll be inviting athletes and sports personalities. We run a sports website so we are going to be adding intricate details to make this pop.
Tunes: We love bacon, sports, beer, and jerseys but we also dig music. That’s why we’ll be having a dope DJ cutting the 1′s and 2′s. In order to have a killer atmosphere good music is key.
Giving Back: We’ll be giving a minimum of $5,000 of the ticket proceeds to Chicago Cares, a Chicago based charity organization who’s volunteer programs help make Chicago a better place to live for everyone. Since 1991, Chicago Cares volunteers have completed more than 1.4 million hours of service through over 30,000 group volunteer projects.
