In the beginning, there was bacon. Not the beginning of time, nor the beginning of humanity… but the beginning of one’s journey into a lifetime of appreciation for the sweet, candy meat known as bacon. Often responsible for the loss of one’s tastebud virginity, bacon is the reason pigs exist. On Saturday, July 16th at the Ash St Saloon (225 SW Ash St in Portland, OR, roughly 8:00pm… the First Annual 1HRx Bacon Cup will make history…

Since bacon is pretty much the best thing ever, the fine folks at 1HRx Entertainment have decided to present a night of entertainment with a focus on competitive bacon creation, the best of which will be awarded the 2011 Bacon Cup (in addition to a shitload of promotional advertising material). Celebrity judges, as well as audience members, will be assisting in the cutthroat decision-making processes involved in the delivery of this prestigious award to it’s rightful owner.

In addition to the usual Portland-area event shenanigans (live bands getting down, off-duty strippers getting dirty and Pabst getting drank), Bacon Cup features an impressive lineup of unique entertainment that includes bacon wrestling and a giant-tittied bacon-pastie-wearing DJ! Ever wondered how bacon was invented? Do you want to taste the secret bacon recipe that led to the arrest of Wombstretcha the Magnificent?…

… were you sold on this thing as soon as you read the word “bacon?”

Don’t worry, 21-and-over kids, this will not be another flash-in-the-pan half-assed attempt at fun-having that is so commonly associated with Rose City concerts. Oh no. This is the First Annual Bacon Cup, and if you’re not doing anything next Saturday, leave the kids at McDonald’s and come on down to Ash St Saloon for Bacon Cup!
