    Bacon + Beer Classic at Citi Field — Saturday, July 26 at 12PM to 10PM

    Yum!

    Held on Saturday, July 26 at Citi Field, this must-attend event brings together some of the best local breweries and restaurants for an unforgettable mix of food and fun.

    Choose from a brunch (noon to 3 p.m.) or dinner (7 to 10 p.m.) session, and get tasting. In between craft brew samples from local breweries and bacon-inspired tastes, guests can check out great DJs playing from atop the dugouts, bring out your inner kid by playing interactive games, (think dunk tank, inflatable bungee run, and batting cage) and attend food demos and brew schools. You will definitely leave knowing a thing or two more about bacon and beer (and with a full belly to boot), but can feel good knowing the proceeds from ticket sales will be used by Citymeals-on-Wheels to deliver nourishing meals to New York City’s homebound elderly.
