'Food Paradise' to film Bad Decisions' Bacon & Beer Happy Hour tonight

the gutbusterCamera crews from the Travel Channel's "Food Paradise" will be filming at Bad Decisions' Bacon & Beer Happy Hour tonight, according to owner John Reusing.

The footage is for an episode of "Food Paradise" dedicated to bacon, Reusing said. This is the 11th installment of the popular bacon and suds celebration, which features a rotating menu of drinks and bacon-laden fare.

Tonight's party, which starts at 5 p.m., will have food made by guest chefs from the past two happy hours, Reusing said. 

"I'm kinda still in shock about the whole thing," Reusing wrote in an e-mail. "I'm just doing my normal bacon night and hopefully giving people another reason to visit Baltimore."

meat is murder

transported man. no one cares what u say. not even me

I hope he doesn't print the menu before someone reminds him it's spelled "mesclun"; that dangerously-close-to-drug-reference green has its share of misspellings.

Send Patchen. He can tell them all about bacon vodka.

This place makes the best cocktails and the food is great too. Definitely an underrated place for inventive drinks.

I will say this, creative off the wall events, a fantastic drink menu, and good music, does not make up for poor service, terrible presentation and an absolutely filthy, filthy bar.

I understand the dive bar aspect of places, but it is inexcusable, to leave dirty glasses on the bar for 30+ minutes. At one point, I had no idea which can was my beer, so I left.

Jews for Bacon!!
