Can you deny that tagline? We should all be ashamed that we didn’t think of this* first ourselves. Okay, maybe Bittman thought of it, but is he mass-marketing it? And is he launching it with a wrestling match between an enormous slice of bacon and a similarly-sized jar of mayo? I THINK NOT.
Please, someone in or near Seattle, go to this. Go, and take photographs. Many photographs, in glorious, bacon-y color. We must live vicariously through you.
*Most wonderful irony EVER: It’s kosher.
From the makers of Baconnaise.:
“We figured we’d launch this product in a fun way while raising money for a great cause. So we give you – MAYONNAISE WRESTLING. This is an event you won’t want to miss. We’ll have free BLT’s, $3 tequila and Mitch Morgan’s (the drink that inspired Bacon Salt – Maker’s Mark whiskey with a bacon garnish), and a no-holds barred wrestling match between a giant slice of bacon and a giant jar of mayonnaise. Undercards will include our intern Matt (who recently crashed my car and needs to pay) dressed as Bacon Boy vs. the Seattle Mudhens womens’ rugby team, the Seattle Semi-Pro Wrestling League’s all-star wrestlers, and The Bacon Girls – all wrestling in a ring filled with 200 gallons of mayonnaise.
A limited number of people can bring their regular, boring jar of mayonnaise and exchange it for a jar of Baconnaise, available in Regular or Lite.
If you’re in Seattle, come on by Heaven’s Nightclub in Pioneer Square on Thursday, October 30th starting at 7pm. Proceeds will go to the family of Omero Mendez, a friend to J&D’s that supervised our production runs and was tragically shot in Federal Way two months ago.”
NB: I have no relationship whatsoever to these people, although if I did live in Seattle we would totally be BFFs.
