Save the date. Mark your calendars, start saving cans of food to donate, and begin your pre-event planning now (i.e. get on the treadmill early and often).
You will need to pay close attention to the announcements about ticket sales in order to attend as this event sells out faster than Nathan Spears can butcher a hog.
We strongly support the purchase of VIP tickets. They are more expensive, but the vibe in the room is calmer, there is more time to talk to Chefs, and people seem to really enjoy having the chance to taste the very best in bacon at their leisure. If you are already looking forward to the event, you are the type of bacon-lover who should invest in a VIP ticket.
