So the Bacon Chase has come and gone, as does Chicago Glutton’s first attempt at whoring itself out for server money. Someone’s gotta bring home the bacon as they say.
Anyway. . .
So the bacon chase actually is something I’ll never forget, for a few reasons:
1. It was the most amount of cooked bacon I’ve ever seen in my life.
Seriously, we’re taking enough bacon to feed literally thousands of crazy people. And I’m not joking when I say crazy people. People celebrated this shit out of this thing, it was almost to the burning-man level, just a bit nerdier. Definitley some good people watching.
2. There were the most bloody mary’s that I’ve ever seen in my life.
As an American, you need to respect this level of excess.
3. The bacon fever thing is really out of control.
Sure you see bacon everything at every tchotchke store out there, but until you see several thousand people chanting bacon, while dressed as bacon, eating unlmited bacon you really feel how out of hand this has escalated. Will it go pop? I honestly don’t think so.
4. The Bacon Chase sound guys.

It might just be the strangest 50 minutes you spend this year.
