Speaking of bacon, Tom Douglas is hosting a “Baconopolis” event on April 24 at the Palace Ballroom, featuring “bacon tastings from artisan producers and creative bacon bites from Tom Douglas Restaurants.” The menu so far includes bacon hash, Bloody Marys with bacon garnish, BLTs, “butterscotch bacon bites,” and, just to get fancy, a “lardon salad” with poached quail egg. Producers include Palace Kitchen alum Duskie Estes, Nueske’s (highly recommended for bacon donuts), Pike Place Market’s Bavarian Meats, and local bacon-ators TBA. The porky shindig begins at 6 p.m.. Cost: $20, which also includes one drink ticket for wine or beer. Tax and tip not included. For reservations call Christy at 206-448-2001 or write christinal@tomdouglas.com.
