A benefit for the cured.
Sunday, Sept. 29, 11 a.m-4 p.m.
We’re not entirely sure what to expect at the first ever BaconFest Tulsa, Sunday, Sept. 29. According to www.facebook.com/baconfesttulsa, this outdoor event will feature the area’s finest and most creative chefs, bakers and baristas all working with our favorite breakfast staple – bacon – and competing to be crowned Boss Hog of BaconFest. The Nightingale Theater, 1416 E. Fourth St., in Tulsa’s Pearl District wants to fill your plate with gourmet bites and desserts from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. There will also be an amateur bacon cooking contest, bacon haiku contest and a bacon look-a-like contest. It’s the Nightingale, which has brought tales strange, true and esoteric to its stage for more than a decade, so we’re know it will be unlike any other benefit we’ve seen. Advance tickets are $20, but tickets at the gate are $25. Price coveres sampling and goodie bags. Proceeds will fund capital improvements of the theater. Go online for more details.
