Can’t Miss Events: Mac & Cheese Fest, Bacon & Beer Classic, Mash Bash

festWhy eat or drink one meal when you can have dozens in a single afternoon? That’s what these amazing fall fest options bring to the table. There’s something for everyone… or at least everyone worth knowing.

Bacon & Beer Classic
The two best friends in the world are back together again. I was a judge for last year’s festivities, and I’m happy to back in my role yet again. 50+ craft beers, 25+ original bacon dishes, and unlimited bacon strips. Add in party games and a bacon eating contest, and you’ve got a recipe for gluttony.

Mash Bash
30+ award-winning whiskeys will be poured for your pleasure at this annual event put on by Tickets includes a free Glencairn Crystal whiskey glass, a giftbag full of goodies, free food sampling and the chance to win amazing raffle prizes! Oh, and whiskey. Lots and lots of whiskey.

Mac & Cheese Fest
Three hours of all you can eat mac & cheese from Chicago’s finest restaurants (including house favorite Baptiste & Bottle) plus enough drinks to wash it all down. We all loved the blue box, but this fest will give adult-you a whole new appreciation for your childhood favorite. Part of proceeds go to charity so you can feel good stuffing your face!
