Bacon and Beer Classic @ Avaya Stadium
The 6th annual Bacon and Beer Classic is coming to Avaya Stadium on Saturday, April 13, where local chefs will serve 30+ bacon-inspired dishes and regional breweries will offer a variety of 100+ craft beers. Hence the name. There will also be music, games and a bacon-eating contest.
Events like this with heavy food and alcohol are the perfect opportunity to take public transportation. Think of the children. Take Caltrain down to Santa Clara Station and either walk (not a bad idea after all that bacon) or take VTA’s Route 10 bus for service to Avaya Stadium.
