Don't Miss The 2019 Jersey City Bacon & Beer Classic on October 3 [Promo Code]
Jersey City might just be Manhattan’s best kept secret.
A quick 15-minute ferry ride from Midtown (and half that from Downtown), Jersey City has a lot to brag about. It boasts an impressive up-and-coming culinary scene. It has some of our favorite local distilleries (like Corgi Gin, whose out-of-this-world Earl Grey infused gin we sampled at the New York Cocktail Expo). And, to top it all off, Jersey City has a cool, laid-back vibe that gives you the feeling of being in a city without the overwhelm of actually being in the city.
Another thing that Jersey City has going for it?
The Bacon & Beer Classic, a festival featuring two of God’s greatest gifts to man combined in limitless quantities over a four-hour stretch.
This year, the first annual Jersey City Bacon & Beer Classic will be held on Thursday, October 3rd from 6-10pm at the Harborside Atrium at 210 Hudson Street. Being right on the water means you’ll get to enjoy stunning views of Manhattan while you stuff your face with 25+ bacon-inspired dishes from some of the best chefs in the NYC Area. They’ll be serving up food like Kentucky Fried Bacon Bites, Pork Belly Sliders, Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes, Spicy Sriracha Pork Ramen…hold on, brb, going to eat second lunch…
On top of that, the Jersey City Bacon & Beer Classic is “the open bar to end all open bars.” Over 65 vendors will be offering free samples (poured right into your cute souvenir cup!) of every type of craft beer imaginable: IPAs, stouts, sours, pale ales…you name it, they’ve got it.
Oh, and for those of you who don’t do beer, we don’t want to know you.
Just kidding, the Bacon & Beer Classic will also have an array of non-beer spirits and cider on hand to truly round out what’s going to be an epic night of food and drink.
With music, games, giant Jenga, a bacon-eating contest, unlimited beer, and the best festival food to hit NYC since Electric Zoo, Music & Mojitos thinks this is going to be an epic night to remember.
But don’t take our word for it—head out to the Jersey City Bacon & Beer Classic to see for yourself. You can purchase tickets HERE.
