Bacon LIVE: Pittsburgh Chevy Burger and Shake Crawl 2011

Back in the day if one wanted a nice burger and shake they would have to walk 10 miles in the snow up hill both ways just for a little bite to eat. Then out of a desire to never have to walk again mankind invented the car and we’ve been driving ever since.

The good people at Chevrolet must have realized how much I enjoy burgers and hate walking because they invited me and Jason on the 2011 Pittsburgh Chevy Burger and Shake Crawl!!

The deal was we would be whisked away in some of the new Chevy vehicles to some of the best burger and shake joints in the burgh. At first I was a little hesitant to sign up because I know very little about cars and didn’t want to come off as a fool but I do know a lot about the American past time of eating.

I decided to use this as an opportunity to learn a little about cars and fill my belly at the same time, so I signed up. With an open mind and open mouth we headed out.

The plan was to meet up with Chevy, check out the cars, then hit up the restaurants BRGR and Sharp Edge Bistro and finish the day at the Milk Shake Factory. We were so pumped we couldn’t wait around for the 11:30am start time so we went almost 40 minutes early.

When we got there the Chevy team was wiping down the cars to make them all shiny and they were doing such a good job I was half tempted to ask them to do my car next. This was the first glimpse I’ve had at the vehicles. Lined up in all their shiny glory was the Cruze, Tahoe, Equinox, Camaro, and Volt.

We had a quick overview of the cars and they gave us some impressive stats on gas mileage, horse power, and leg room. Now I have to make a little confession, before doing this I wasn’t really a GM supporter but after it was all said and done I was impressed with all the little extras Chevy puts in their cars and the days after the event I even found myself defending Chevy against naysayers.

All the bloggers involved seemed to have a really good time. The afternoon was filled with good food and good people. I for one had a blast and over the next week I’m going to take a more in-depth look at the cars, burgers, and shakes. Some of the things we tried were amazing and blew me away and others were kind of disappointing. So check back through out the week for full coverage.

Jay Leno’s Bacon Lube Commercial

Last week on the Tonight Show Jay Leno said a few jokes about J & D Foods new product baconlube. Strangely Justin and Dave never asked us to review this yet. I guess there are afraid of what Sean and I would do with it on Bacon LIVE.

Watch the video here.

Bacon LIVE: More like Random LIVE

This week’s show was more random then usual, but to some fans thats not a bad thing. Yes thats right, there are some people that say some of our best shows are the ones where we are off-topic. We are not sure why it happens but I guess some weeks bacon is not the first thing on our minds.

Next week should prove to be different. Since the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is that weekend, we will have a ton of bacon stuff to talk about. This is my four year going to the festival and I can’t wait to see how there going to wow me this year.

Bacon LIVE: Non-Bacon Bacon Related News

Last night was the Christmas Bacon LIVE show. We had Christmas music, last second gift ideas, and Sean brought back a popular segment, Non-Bacon Bacon Related News.

The hour went by so fast this week that we didn’t get a chance to get to everything we wanted too. Maybe the new sound board is a little to distracting. All I know is I need some better sounds for it. Maybe next year.

Tune in next week to find out if we got any bacon goodies for Christmas. If you happen to get a few make sure to join us live in the chatroom and tell us about it! See you next week.

Bacon LIVE: Bacon from Space

Sean and I covered a lot ground on Bacon LIVE this week. One of the topics that stuck with me was when we starting talking about alien bacon. Other plants must have bacon… right? If we ever get visited by an alien life forum thats the first thing I am asking. “Do you have bacon and can I try it?”

We also announced that tickets would be going to sale today for the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Sadly if you missed out tickets are sold out. This is great news for the guys that put it on and I can’t wait to see what they have plan this year.

Tune in next week, Sean and I will be reviewing many flavors of bacon jerky!

Bacon LIVE: Bacon is Bad Again

On Season 5 Episode 10 we talked about how some people are spreading lies about how bacon is bad for you, Bacon Take Down, Better Bacon iPad book, UK’s Biggest Bacon Burger, Donny Bacon, and so much more.

How many times do we need to hear people telling us bacon is bad for you? Anything is bad for you if you eat an ungodly amount of it. That’s why bacon lovers only eat the best bacon and never over do it. Watch or listen to the show to hear our full commentary on this situation.

Welcome to the Relaunch of Mr. Baconpants & Bacon LIVE

Mini Bacon PantsIt’s almost been a year since I last updated this website and it feels good to be back. I had a lot going, like starting my freelance career and getting ready for another announcement coming near the end of this post.

Even with lack of blog updates Sean and I have been still doing Bacon LIVE weekly for our fans. You can find all the shows on uStream.tv. But dont worry about bookmarking that link, because we are now using Google Hangouts to record the show. So make sure you subscribe to my Youtube Channel to get the new shows.

How we record Bacon LIVE is not the only thing has changed. I also made some small changes to the design of the site and removed some pages that where never getting updated.

Sean and I have a lot of new content planned and are excited for the new Google Hangout Bacon LIVE.

Lastly, the biggest change to the site will not be happening till the end of July. Beth and I will be bring a Mr. Baconpants Jr. in to the world. The photo attached to this post are little bacon pants made my Sean’s wife Molly.

I will try not to turn this website in to a daddy blog, but please be ready for a few posts that may feature my new baby. Especially once he can fit in to those pants.
