  • Everyone loves good bourbon and crisp bacon, right? More than 600 Kansas City hog-and-hootch fans paid homage to the boozy, porky combination last night at the first Pitch Bacon & Bourbon Festival.

I was one of those people who stood in the long, long line that snaked around the block to get into the Guild, at 16th Street and Locust, last night for the first annual Pitch Bacon & Bourbon Festival. No one seemed to mind the wait to enter the event space because it was unquestionably a fabulously festive affair.

I don't even drink anymore - luckily, there was food at the event - but was fascinated to watch so many people cheerfully sipping whiskey from little plastic shot glasses that were, roughly, the same size as the pre-measured plastic cups attached to a Nyquil bottle.

"The portions might seem small," one participant explained to me, showing off his black wristband, "but you get to taste 10 of them."
