Bacon and Beer Classic at Citi Field

Bikini season is around the corner and if you’re like me, it’s about as stressful as the 2016 election. Every weekend leading up to summer is spent chugging plant-based juices and squatting until my ass is numb.

That being said, there are a few events that come along worthy of breaking my bikini ready routine and this one happens to involve BACON and BEER. Cannonball Productions is bringing their nationally-touring Bacon and Beer Classic back to Citi Field on Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30, and I’m told these are just a few of the reasons to make your way to the baseball field.

  1. Unlimited Food:Sample original bacon dishes from over 40 NYC restaurants like Delaney Barbecue, Salt & Bone, Blue Smoke, Bareburger, Schmackary’s Cookies, and Bar Bacon. Spicy, savory and sweet – pick your saucy poison.
  1. Unlimited Beer: Wash down those delicious bacon dishes with unlimited samples of over 100 craft beers. Yes, that’s one with two zeros after it. Give that jaw a break from bacon (but not for too long) and sip on brewskies from Big Alice Brewing, Black Hog Brewing, Bronx Brewery, Brooklyn Brew Shop, Coney Island Brewing, Fire Island Beer Co, Staten Island Beer Company and more.
  1. Hormel® Black Market Virtual Reality:The Black Market is a multi-sensory bacon experience designed to launch you on a quest in a world of bacon! Explore a tantalizing bacon universe and purchase your favorite Black Label® bacon flavors all along the way in this first ever mobile virtual reality shopping experience. Maybe you should do this before you start stuffing your face with bacon and beer though!
  1. All-Inclusive Tickets.Tickets are all-inclusive, which means you can indulge in unlimited bacon and beer throughout the stadium. Choose from three ticket types: General Admission, Power Hour, or VIP. General Admission tickets are currently selling at $69 and VIP tickets are selling at $129. VIP and Power Hour ticket holders enter the stadium an hour early through an exclusive line.  VIP ticket holders also have access to exclusive dishes, beer cocktails, a pork belly station, and a BLT bar. All tickets include a commemorative tasting glass and access to the Bacon and Beer Classic mobile app for vendor information, special partner discounts, a stadium map, and more.
  1. The Chance to Win A Year’s Worth of Free Bacon: Prove your love for bacon and compete in the Bacon and Beer Classic’s Hormel® bacon eating contest. The first place winner will take home a year’s supply of Hormel® Black Label® bacon and the second place winner will take home a Duff Goldman gift basket from Tylina Foods. The rest will be going home with a full belly and plenty of pictures for social media.
