(June 19, 2015) Bacon lovers rejoice and bring your dads to the first ever Jah-Bacon Brew Fest at Seacrets on Sunday from 12-4 p.m. at the beach stage.
Attendees 21 and older will have the chance to try a selection of bacon dishes while tasting local craft brews from Evolution, Fin City, Dogfish Head, Duclaw, Burley Oak and Fordham and Dominion.
Sample bacon wrapped meatballs, chocolate-covered bacon, bacon wrapped pretzel dogs, bacon pizzas and salad.
“It’s Father’s Day, what a great day for it. I am bringing my dad,” said Seacrets marketing manager, Jackie Miller. “You can hang out on the beach, drink a beer and eat bacon. Dads love that, who doesn’t?”
For $30 in advance or $35 at the door, attendees will receive 10 drink tickets for craft beer tastings (five pints), a souvenir pint glass and as much bacon-inspired fare as desired.
Additional beer tickets can be purchased and cost $5 for four.
Activities will add some fun to the event including cornhole, a big Jenga and bottle and toss, Miller said.
DJ BK will host a bacon-eating contest while wearing a bacon-theme tuxedo starting at 1:30 p.m. with the introduction of contenders.
“It’s hilarious. He will totally rock it and it’s going to be really fun,” Miller said. “The whole day will be very entertaining.”
Each of the 10 contestants will be given 100 strips of bacon, which is about two pounds, to consume in five minutes. The winner will be whoever finishes first or eats the most bacon.
The bacon-eating champion will receive a pair of tickets to Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads & the Expendables at Pier Six Pavilion Thursday, July 16, a Seacrets Gold Card, Seacrets Spirits, a case of Seacrets Tropicale, Ocean 98 and Seacrets swag and a ticket for the chance to win 20 years of bacon.
Alex & Shilo and Bad Since Breakfast will be entertaining the crowd throughout the day.
“Come out to taste beers and crazy bacon foods,” Miller said.
The event came about when Miller and Justin Grimes, an assistant general manager at Seacrets, decided “to create a fun event where people can relax and enjoy some food and drinks.”
