It's that time of year again! #BaconDay2017, held at Workshop Eatery, is our 8th annual and is set out to be our best yet!
Since opening the doors we have been so fortunate to have the support of our community, and we want to show our gratitude by giving back in the best way we know how. Last year, with your help, we raised just over of $20000.00. Not bad, but this year, we want to crush that. So, again we have decided to donate 100% of ticket sales to YESS and set the fundraising goal for the evening to $30000.00. That's right, every dime you pay (except GST, darn laws and such) will go directly to YESS. We can't achieve this goal without the incredible generosity of some of our partners in business, which include CTV Edmonton, Southgate Audi, Alberta Pork, Irvings Farm Fresh, Baseline Wine & Spirits, Hesco, and Chic Boutique, and of course the generosity of you, our faithful diners.
This year, the evening will see the return of the whole roasted pig, thanks in large part to the kindness of Smokehouse BBQ for their pit. As a matter of fact, you're more than welcome to stop by early, as we will be going whole hog right on the front lawn, from early in the morning to prepare the delectable beast. Weather permitting, the patio will be in full swing and the restaurant will be a buzz with delicious tray passed food items, and several swine inspired food stations, as well as tasty libations, provided by Baseline Wine & Spirits. The imcomparable DJ Hector Castro will be spinning his favourite Kevin Bacon tracks, and the silent auction will be sure to have some real gems.
Last, but never least, Chef Andrew Cowan, beloved chef and co-owner of Northern Chicken will be returning to compete in our annual Bacon Dessert Cook Off. With Chef Paul winning the best of seven series last year Andrew has something to prove. Be there to cast your vote for the winning dish.
Your ticket purchase will get you a seemingly endless amount of bacon inspired food, 10 drink tickets (with the average pour costing 3-5 tickets, more can be purchased) and one vote in the Bacon Dessert Cook Off.
It will be a fun-filled evening, with delicious food, great company, and an incredible cause. I sincerely hope you will join us to celebrate swine and reach our fundraising goal for YESS!
