{Local Event} Bacon Off Orlando Ticket Giveaway

I think y’all know by now–I love bacon. It is the sole piece of meat that keeps me from going vegetarian. It is like candy to me–I could give up all other forms of meat, but not bacon. If you live in Central Florida and you are a bacon lover you have no excuse to not attend Bacon Off. You might be asking what is Bacon Off Orlando and why must I attend?

Two of Orlando’s award winning food trucks; Big Wheel Truck and the C&S Brisket Bus will place their house cured and house smoked bacon head to head for guests to choose the best bacon. Best of all it’s on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17, 2012 from 12-4pm.

As a first event of it’s kind in Orlando, the $30 ticket price includes a bacon sampler plate from each truck, with tastes of bacon in 4 different categories; guests will vote on their favorite, and the winner of each category receives bacon bragging rights. Ticket price also includes access to a bacon-filled buffet, a craft beer or all-natural soda, and live music from The Mud Flappers.

A proceed of sales from Bacon Off benefits the Audubon Park Garden District, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, who works to strengthen and bring cohesion to the district by fostering support through public and private resources with the common goal of rejuvenating and promoting a district that enhances the entire community.

Let’s talk about what these tickets give you access too?

  • A “tasting plate” from both Big Wheel Truck and C&S Brisket Bus (for you to taste and vote on the 4 different types of bacon).
  • Voting rights to vote on your favorite bacon in each category, plus vote on the overall “Bacon Grand Champion” Best Original Bacon, Best Novelty Bacon, Best Bacon Side, Best Bacon Product and Bacon Grand Champion)
  • All you can eat access to a buffet: The Big Wheel Truck is roasting a pig and providing a variety of salads, and the C&S Brisket Bus is providing a make-you-own sandwich station.
  • A beer of your choice from Cigar City, Swamp Head, or Narragansett (quantities are limited, first come first serve) or a non alcoholic Boylan’s Soda. *Additional beer, soda, and water will be available for purchase.
Remember, this is a food truck event–chairs won’t be provided so make sure you bring your own chairs if you wish to sit. Retail opportunities include Big Wheel Provisions line of house made, locally sourced grocery provisions, and merchandise, and C&S Brisket Bus’ line of bacon swag gear. The Batter Bowl will be on sites selling sweets as well!

    Bacon wrapped shrimp are super tasty but can’t beat a Classic BLTC – Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Cheese!
