Baconfest lineup announced

January 16, 2013|By Zara Husaini @zarhus | RedEye

It’s never too early to start thinking about bacon--which is why the lineup for this year's Baconfest should excite Chicago.

More than 120 chefs and restaurants are providing the goods for this year's event. The Greater Chicago Depository is a partner for the event, and a portions of the proceeds will go to their efforts to end world hunger.

In what may be the most perfectly timed coincidence of all time, Baconfest will take place on April 20. But fear not, pig lovers--you can check the website now for a list of participating restaurants.

This year’s Baconfest will be split into two separate sessions: lunch and dinner. Check baconfestchicago.com about 2 weeks before the event for a complete menu. Tickets will be  available Feb. 20.
