Baconfest Chicago Postponed

All's been quiet on the Baconfest Chicago front in recent weeks. Today we find out why. In a blog post on the Baconfest website, co-organizer Seth Zurer announced that the event has been postponed until April 19, 2K10. Zurer writes:

Although we have raised a significant amount of pledged monetary and in-kind sponsorship support, we have not been able to meet the financial goals that would make it possible to produce the event on the original time-line.

The VIP bacon cookoff, scheduled for October 24 at the Publican, will go on as scheduled. Zurer says that tickets for that will go on sale next week.
