Just another Saturday night in South Florida? HARDLY!
If you were driving down Rte. 95 or the turnpike from Palm Beach County into Broward, I’m CERTAIN that you could have smelled it. The scent filled the air and made tummies rumble.
I pulled in to the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino, left the car at the valet and took my first walk through. Along the way I tossed a $20 in a slot machine gave a pull, and won $50. I could have stayed and taken a chance with lady luck, but I quickly cashed out because the scent was calling to me.
Wristband securely on, I walked through the gate and found a WONDERLAND of appetizers, drinks, entrees, and desserts all created with ONE common ingredient….BACON. So began BaconFest, hosted by Chef Todd Fisher from Discovery’s Destination America network show, ‘United States of Bacon’ and sponsored by none other than Hormel. With 20 of South Florida’s top restaurants competing for “best of” BaconFest, what could POSSIBLY be better?
How about a concert from The Dan Band, and…the BACON BROTHERS! Yes…that IS Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael.
Enjoy the evening along with me as I tasted, drank, played (yes, that’s beer keg bowling), and danced. This may have been South Florida’s FIRST baconfest, but after seeing the crowds and enjoying the night, I’m certain that it won’t be the last.
Thank you to the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino, The Buzz Agency & BaconFest for inviting me. All opinions are strictly my own.
