"Whenever you're at a brunch buffet and you see that big metal tray filled with the 4,000 pieces of bacon, don't you expect a rainbow to be coming out of it? 'I found it! I found the source of all bacon!'"
Held this past Saturday at UIC Forum, it wasn't all about piggery. The Baconfest Triumvirate of founders also donated a big $50,000 check to the Greater Chicago Food Despository—and 3,000 Baconfesters brought 2,298 pounds of food for the food drive.
