|We received mini glass red Solo tasting cups!
Yesterday at Safeco Field was the Bacon and Beer Classic. It was a day filled with restaurants featuring food samples all with one common ingredient, bacon! There were also breweries sampling over 100 beers. If that wasn't enough, there was entertainment by three bands, and also some fun games to try out. I had a great time at the event! Here are some pictures I took throughout the event. I hope Safeco Field hosts this event again next year!

I would like to thank all the restaurants and breweries for providing such amazing food and beer! Also thanks to Campfire OK, Hey Marseilles, and Creme Tangerine for their great music. And last, but not least, thank you to Safeco Field and all the sponsors and promoters for putting on such a great event! Bacon, beer and a baseball stadium are a winning combination! I hope to see you all again next year! Cheers!
