Bacon & Bourbon on Feb. 8th; Beaufain St.

Going to the Bacon & Bourbon "party" (festival? gala?) at Memminger on February 8th.

Anyone else going? I believe this is year 1 for this shindig. Haven't been to CHS in a few months, and wondering if this has been getting any press "on the streets", in the City Paper, etc.

Pretty interesting line-up of chefs and bourbons. Figured I'd go to TA as this would be of interest to locals and travelers alike.

Cheers

Interesting. I haven't actually heard anything about it.

Looks great! I gather the Post and Courier wrote about it back in December, but I missed it. Here's the website - http://www.baconandbourbonsc.com/#!about/c1ugn

Price might not seem too bad when you consider the normal cost in Charleston of dinner with drinks plus entertainment. Also, the event benefits "Darkness to Light", a charity developing programs to help prevent abuse of children - http://www.d2l.org/

I was given 2 tickets for VIP access as a Christmas present from my mother in law. $75 pp.

Goes to a good cause, and the price is extra-justfied considering one 2 oz. glass of Pappy Van Winkle cost $85 at my local bar! (Pappy tastings are free to VIP guests here..!)

I detest bourbon, so probably not a good choice for me. At this time, online VIP tickets are $102 with tax and fees. Your mom got a good deal. Regular tickets are now $65 before fees (online).

Oops ~ now it says $60, could have sworn that yesterday it said $65.

Yes the prices are going up. She got the $75 VIP tickets first week they went on sale.
