3rd Annual Boise Bacon & Beer Benefit

Park Terrace, Saturday, Aug. 25


The Boise Bacon & Beer Benefit subscribes to a simple philosophy: The only thing better than bacon is more bacon—with the possible exception of beer. Now in its third year in Boise, the benefit will bring more than 300 pounds of bacon to one place for a "bacon-inspired cook-off." Attendees will get the chance to eat as much as 40 ounces of porky creations from local chefs, along with beers from 20 Boise-area breweries. Games and a live DJ will round out the fun, and every bacon lover passing through will score a commemorative glass along with their food and drink tokens, and earn the right to vote for their favorite bacon-filled dish. One restaurant will win the title of "most bacon-y." And in true Boise fashion, the proceeds will all go to nonprofits: Community Outreach Behavioral Services and Create Common Good.
