Recapping the Bacon and Beer Happy Hour at Bad Decisions
Much to my chagrin, I couldn't make it to the fourth Bacon and Beer Happy Hour last night at Bad Decisions. Midnight Sun spy Evan was there, though. I salivated at the thought of eating beer and bacon all night. But by the time I got to the end of Evan's recap, I was kind of nauseous. Enjoy:
The Bacon and Beer Happy Hour IV has come and gone and it was a pretty great time indeed. For a bar that has essentially made a name for itself solely through Tweeting frequently, Bad Decisions has really done a fine job of generating a ton of interest in their events and establishment in general, this particular event especially.
The place was packed by 7 p.m. and it was still packed when I left, having a grande olde time eating entirely too much bacon and drinking cheap beer.
And when I say entirely too much bacon, I mean entirely too much bacon; instead of pretzels in baskets, they put out baskets of bacon as snacks ...
Each and every menu item had bacon in it (a lot of bacon). I played it safe with a grilled cheese and bacon but other sandwiches, such as the GBLT (a BLT with Guacamole) were piled enormously high with the smokey goodness.
And no evening featuring all things bacon would be complete without a star, a bright shining star that eclipses all other food items, a truly epic piece of food destined to destroy us all in a white hot supernova.
That food item is known as The Gutbuster (pictured), and it is truly horrifying. The Gutbuster is a double bacon cheeseburger with -- are you ready for this -- two bacon grilled cheese sandwiches as a bun (no lettuce or tomato, that stuff's for wimps).
This thing was like a Hollywood star on the red carpet when it came out of the kitchen: Pictures being shot left and right, ooohs and aaahs and gags all around.
Upon taking his first bite, one guy stated "it's like I've been slimed!" as grease and butter covered his chin. But he ate the whole thing, and then ate a plate of nachos. Unreal. (I also submitted it to This Is Why You're Fat)
People were met, beer and bacon vodka were consumed, it was great. Can't wait for the next one!
