Bacon Takedown City #6 = Bkln – Meat Explosion plosion losion sion on on on

Thetakedowns.com will neither confirm nor deny that we totally monstered 250 Brooklynites on Sunday (even though we totally did!!!!) at the Bell House.  3rd Bacon TD ever, only this time even more better!!! The stank of a Bacon Takedown makes all other Stuff That Is Fun seem just plain DUMB. Hey, you guys? Guess what Jenn De la Vega did when she WON this thing? She totally cried!!!! What a baby!!!!  But then she explained to me that she was crying because she was HAPPY! Weird, right!???

Thanks be to Hormel Black Label Bacon!  They sponsored this, the last leg of this year’s bacon takedown tour!!! 6 cities DONE!!!  Thanks also be to the New York Food Film Festival! Making it possible for me to do BACK TO BACK Takedowns- Tacos Saturday, bacon Sunday…!!!! Also big league shout out to Baconery.com for hanging out their rad bacon baked goods all day long!!!

Guest Judges who bestowed their local food wisdom included:

(Awesome story about Jen Wanous: apparently she was so inspired by her win at last year’s takedown that she quit her job, went to culinary school, and is now a working chef!!!! Because of the Takedown!!! I swear to GOD!!!!)
