Sycamore Brewery Bacon Fest and Papi Queso

New Blog Post!

It was a hot weekend in North Carolina, so we started it off with a pool day on Friday.

Saturday started with Hailey’s last soccer game and then her and I got our nails done. Usually when I take Hailey she just gets her nails painted, but this time she got her first “big girl” pedicure with all the fun stuff they do to mommy’s feet and she was pretty excited!

Then we took the girls to Gammie and Papa Keith’s house and headed to Sycamore Brewery in Charlotte with some friends. They were having their 2nd annual Bacon Fest. I actually don’t like bacon on or in other food, but I’ll eat it buy itself. I guess that’s kind of weird. They called it a bacon fest because there were a bunch of food trucks there and they added extra menu items showcasing bacon. Sycamore had all their beer set up outside in different places so it was very easy to get a drink.

Prosecco Pops included!

He said the sun was in his eyes in this picture. I don’t think that justifies a fake smile, but he really does like me, I promise!

The main reason I wanted to go to the bacon fest was for Papi Queso. They are a grilled cheese food truck that was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. I’ve been wanting to try it forever and it did not disappoint!

I got the “Green Muenster” which had muenster cheese, avocado, spinach and wasabi horseradish sauce. It was so good! They are known for “The Pig Mac,” which has pulled pork, bourbon onions and mac and cheese on it. Maybe next time!

We had a fun Saturday, and the girls enjoyed their time with Gammie, Papa Keith and their cousin Anthony.

Do you try to eat at places you see on food shows?

My husband and I do, especially when we are in a new city!

  1. Nice weekend! We always try to go to places we see on food shows, we’ve been to Price’s Chicken Coop in Charlotte & that was on the same show years ago. Glad you had fun!

  2. We’ve tried Melt Bar and Grilled in Cleveland. It was on Man vs. Food.

    I did not try the giant every cheese sandwich. Yuck!

    I had the cream cheese and jalepeno jelly grilled cheese that was battered, deep fried, and dusted with powdered sugar!

    The fries were disappointing though, which was very sad!
