Bacon cocktails? Baconfest Chicago has something for everyone

CHICAGO — Bacon lovers may have found heaven Saturday as the 11th annual Baconfest Chicago took over the UIC Forum. Roughly 150 restaurants served up bacon dishes and bacon-inspired treats like cocktails, oyster shooters and pastries.

Part of the event’s proceeds go to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. To date, Baconfest has raised more than $400,000 for the organization.
