Tickets are on sale now for the first Rock Town Bacon Throwdown, 1 p.m., Oct. 5 at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, a competition featuring local professional chefs serving their best bacon dishes in a cookoff contest to benefit patients at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Medical Center.
Tickets are $25 each and include a sample of each dish, soft drinks/water and a vote in determining the best bacon dish. With purchase of an adult ticket, children 6 and under get in free for games with activities that include a tasting table just for them. Live entertainment will be provided by the Good Time Ramblers.
Ten local chefs from area restaurants or public venues are already signed up to present dishes revolving around bacon. Top honors will be selected by a panel of judges and the “People’s Choice” based on votes from ticketholders.
