Bacon, bacon, who`s got the bacon - Baconopolis proudly raises its hand

By Rocco Loosbrock

Baconopolis " Baconopolis, by any other name would you " could you possibly smell and taste so seductively sweet, salty, sizzlingly savory and sensually sensational! I for one, think NOT!


Baconopolis (Round Two) This time it`s Porkual! " " took place on Friday night, February 26th from 6:00 -8:00 PM at the ever so awesome Palace Ballroom in the wondrously Washingtonian city of Seattle.  

Surprising to none, the event featured bacon, bacon and more bacon.



Specifically " 10 delightfully different, delectable dishes of bacon oriented fine dining fare, from items that seem to naturally go together like a hand and glove, " to other recipes that go together more like penguins on unicycles " and low salt, none fat nuclear submarines. "


The entire event was brought to us by the good folks over at the Palace Ballroom
and their illustrious owner, Mr. Tom Douglas, who is also noted in the foodie " world for being a semifinalist for the prestigious 2010 James Beard Foundation award for Best Restaurateur.

The menu included:

B.L.A.T. (the classic with avocado)

Bacon Cured Whole Pig

Bacon Cornbread Muffin

Pork n` Beans

Bacon Explosion

Elvis` Favorite: Hot Peanut Butter, Banana and Bacon

Classic Carbonara

Bacon Fried Rice

Bacon Biscuit Sandwich with Gravy

Bacon Filled Doughnut with Maple Glaze and Bacon Salt


OK " so I was momentarily distraught to discover they were NOT servi9ng my favorite Pork At The Bottom Yogurt, the entire event was utterly amazing?


Absolutely everybody had a wonderfully awesome time and as predicted, totally PIGGED OUT!


We can`t wait till next year.


Senseless In Seattle!


Signing off at Pigging out!
