Live meat butchering

Akimenko meats
(Just a picture, NOT a video)

We haven’t figured out all the logistics yet but a professional butcher from Cambridge, MA might be coming out to do a demonstration of how to cut up a pig. Don’t worry, it’ll already be dead. I know not everyone will be keen on this (although I love to understand where my food comes from and how it is handled), so I think we’ll do it at the beginning or the end of the event.

You should definitely check out their kickstarter page. They are trying to raise money to open a butcher shop.

Akimenko Meats strives to bridge the gap between the city dweller and our local farmers. Our commitment to our neighbors is to bring in local, organic, and sustainable products while supporting the local agricultural community, building customer awareness, ultimately aiding our local economy.

This is a great cause worth backing.

On site silkscreening

San Francisco BaconCamp logo
Do you want this logo on a shirt on your shirt? Absolutely!!
I’m very excited to announce that we will have on site silk screening at BaconCamp this Saturday. Quinn has generously donated his time and equipment to screen a delicious strip of bacon and the San Francisco logo on any clothing item you bring. The ink is white, so designs will look best on a red or cranberry colored fabric.

All you need to take part in this fantastic activity is your own shirt (or hoodie, scarf, whatever). We’ll have a table set up for silk screening from 2pm to 4pm and we are taking donations to cover the cost of supplies. For the low low price of only $1 you can have a custom San Francisco BaconCamp tshirt. You can even watch the screening in action.

So don’t forget to bring your shirt to BaconCamp. This is an opportunity you’ll be sorry to miss out on.
