Let’s say you have a theater company that has its own building. And let’s say that building needs regular maintenance, and occasional capital improvements. And let’s also say that you don’t have tons of money to do that stuff. What do you do?
The Nightingale Theater has decided that what it would do in this situation is hold Baconfest Tulsa 2013.
What exactly is a bacon festival? Well, apparently, it’s exactly what it sounds like. There will be tons of food based around bacon prepared by local chefs. Just a little bit of cogitation on that last sentence will probably bring you to the conclusion that this is not a place where there will just be a plate of bacon for you to eat.
Expect bacon-esque takes on all sorts of foods. Like, I’d be there will be a peanut butter and bacon sandwich. Maybe a bacon cupcake.
It’s an outdoor event held on E. 4th Street between Peoria and Utica — outside the Nightingale and smack-dab in the middle of the Pearl District — so it’s a good bet that wafting smells will bring curious passersby.
Once you get in (tickets are $20 or $25 at the door), you’ve got an all-access pass to bacon-themed foods, contests, and swag. Ever wanted to write a haiku about bacon? There’s a contest for that. Think you look like bacon? There’s a contest for that.
Vendors for the event include Andolini’s Pizzeria, Ann’s Bakery, The Phoenix, and Fassler Hall to name but a scant few.
You’d be well served to show up to this hungry.
