You can’t always get what you want

Sorry for the delay in posts, it’s been a busy week with work and all.  Life happens.

Last week, The Russian and I went to Bacon and Beer Fest art show hosted by Eat Boston.  I was super excited as The Russian and I both love bacon and beer, but, for the first time, we were disappointed.

Firstly, the space was packed.

We were given a drink ticket good for one Bloody Mary made with bacon vodka, but as one party goer said, he couldn’t taste the bacon.  Also there was no beer un less it was bought, and no beer-flavored food.

Speaking of food, the entire time we were there we only saw two plates of food.  Bacon–wrapped asparagus and bacon–wrapped scallops.  Both were good, but there was not enough food or everyone and The Russian and I had to share a scallop.

The artwork, however, was super awesome.


Notice the portrait of Tyrion. Awesome.

I’ve been to other Eat events and just loved them, so I’ll chalk this time up to a fluke. The next event I’m attending is tomorrow, the Boston Bites Back event, and I couldn’t be more excited.  The event has been hyped so much, it’s sure to deliver. More to come on that very soon!
