If the spectacle of soccer and Teddy Goalsevelt doesn’t quite push your patriotic buttons, here’s something that might. The good people at Cannonball Productions are bringing their Bacon and Beer Classic to Citifield on Thursday, July 26. A mere $59 buys you a ticket to the event, and promises to overload your senses with craft beers (from local brewers like Queens Brewery) and bacon in more ways than you’d ever thought possible. There will also be cooking demonstrations and education sessions, so you can at least learn something while you’re stumbling around Citifield with the meat sweats. Interested? Get your tickets here.
