“Imagine art inspired by bacon and beer. Sounds glorious, right?” So muses Aaron Cohen, Boston Bacon and Beer Festival mastermind and producer of the Arts Council’s recent Ginger Explosion event, held at Union Square’s PA’s Lounge.
If your interest is piqued and you like the idea of a bacon-beer-art trifecta, snag some of the last tickets to the bacon and beer inspired art show held tonight in Union Square, May 2nd, at PA’s Lounge. Tickets to the later showing are sold out, yet there are still a few tickets left to the 6:30-8pm showing. Once through PA’s doors, culinary curious folk will be able sample bacony offerings from Stone Hearth Pizza Company, Zoe’s Meats, and Pink Box Desserts, with beer from Watch City Brewing Company, Clown Shoes Beer and Left Hand Brewing Company—all while viewing art inspired by bacon and beer from more than 15 artists. To learn a bit more about the art on display, check out Super Prescious, Aaron’s new online art gallery. Tix for tonight’s event cost $10 and are available here.
We asked Aaron if he was surprised by the popularity of his Boston Bacon and Beer Festival. He told us, “This is the third Bacon and Beer Festival, and I’m shocked when ANYONE wants to come to the events, let alone everyone.”
This is a 21+ event and not recommended for the cholesterol conscious.
