Pigging Out with Dad’s Garage at BaconFest

A little bit of rain couldn’t keep away hundreds of bacon fans Saturday afternoon at BaconFest, the annual fundraiser for Dad’s Garage Theatre Company.

At the sold out event guest got to pig out on pork in a variety of ways.  There were cups of bacon, BLTs, bacon and sausage sandwiches and more.

Among the local restaurants offering their take on the celebrated meat, Diesel Filling Station served the ultimate bite – bacon wrapped pork, grilled with a touch of maple syrup.

Some people went whole hog with a VIP ticket that allowed them to feast on a whole pig roasted by the BBQ masters at P’cheen International Bistro & Pub.

Complementing the bacon was a selection of beer from Georgia favorites Wild Heaven and Terrapin, as well as PBR.

Beyond bacon, the afternoon included plenty of entertainment and games.  Performances by local bands along with an upbeat interlude by the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable provided the soundtrack for snacking.

There was a dunk tank, a palm reader and bearded guys (and gals) offering massages.  One popular spot was the hobo wine tasting where people could enjoy Boone’s Farm along with the finest cheese that is sprayed from a can.

For those who didn’t make it to BaconFest, there’s plenty of fun to be had all year long at Dad’s Garage.  Founded in 1995, the nonprofit theatre in Inman Park engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works.
