America Loves Bacon Review – Tampa

Last week the much anticipated America Loves Bacon tour made a stop here in Tampa.  I’ve been salivating over the promotional pics for weeks and weeks.  When I got word that I could come and blog about it I jumped at the chance!   My teen son and I had bacon fever.

We came hungry! We arrived right when the gates opened because I planned to leave no stone unturned, no bacon unsampled, no swine uneaten. (I’m aware those aren’t words, just go with it.)

My first reaction to entering the fair grounds was, wow it’s pretty small.  There were a few food trucks, the Datz and Dough stand, and the Madison Chocolatiers West stand.   There was space for a couple of other stands but they were vacant.   A bit further there were covered stands for the 4 different areas: Hog on a Stick, Swiny Sweets, Grill It Up, and Butcher’s Block.  The main covered pavilion had beer and drinks, seating, and the cooking demonstration area.  There was also a small kid’s zone.

First, let’s talk about what was awesome!

Datz/Dough brought their A game.  It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa and they are known to incorporate bacon in their dishes.  They even serve a platter of bacon as an appetizer.  Think of them as the Floyd Mayweathers of baconology.  It’s really just not even fair to the competition.

America Loves Bacon Festival – Tampa

Have you heard the America Loves Bacon tour is coming to Tampa Bay?   I am so excited for this event.  The bacon invasion is going down this Saturday April 11th from 1pm to 7pm at the Florida State Fairgrounds. I love bacon and my teenage son loves bacon even more than I do so we are practically salivating about this festival.

EATS American Grill Comes to Eastern Hillsborough County

Guess what day it is! That’s right — it’s time for another Foodie Friday feature this week. In between my recent globetrotting exploits, I found time to check out a new restaurant in my neck of the woods along with some of my fellow Tampa Bay Bloggers.  I live in the eastern part of the county just on the other side of I-75 but it always seems like South Tampa/Downtown area gets all of the good spots. Well, I have great news.  If you weren’t aware, EATS American Grill, one of those South Tampa staples, has branched out and opened a location in Riverview in the cute throwback shopping center of Winthrop Town Center.
