Bacon and Bourbon Festival Returns to Loveless Barn on Feb. 6

Posted by on Mon, Dec 30, 2013 at 7:33 AM

My compatriots in the marketing department at SouthComm certainly know how to throw a party. From the annual Best of Nashville event to Iron Fork to the Sugar Rush party, the event planners at the Scene, Nfocus et al. really know their stuff.

Last year, SouthComm put together the inaugural Bacon and Bourbon fest, and it was a resounding success. Organizers smartly limited the number of tickets so that attendees could actually spend some time talking with the various purveyors and enjoying the bluegrass rather than just running from long line to long line in the pursuit of a porky buzz. Because of this limit, the event was a hard sell-out, and I expect this year's edition to do the same.

Bacon and Bourbon will return to the Loveless Barn at 8400 Highway 100 on Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The bourbon sponsors are an auspicious lot, including Blanton's, Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, W.L. Weller, Colonel E.H. Taylor and Elmer T. Lee. Astute bourbon fans will notice that those are all brands in the Sazerac portfolio, and that's a good thing.

The roster of food vendors that will be providing samples of bacon-y goodness is still expanding, but early commitments include Loveless, Pub5, Perl, The Local Taco and more. Just to make the evening perfect, there will also be more beer and bluegrass. Like I said, this event will sell out, so if this sounds like porky-vana to you, head over to the event website right away and buy your tickets.

See you there!
