“It is a traveling food and beverage event,” she said. “This is our first time to Philadelphia but we’ve been doing this for about 4 years and we have about 12 (events) per year.”

“There’s a lot of different bacon things that I didn’t think I’d see here,” he said. “Like the waffles, the mac and cheese bacon thing, that’s pretty cool, then they had some burgers and chicken. It’s not just bacon, it’s a lot of different things so it’s pretty cool.”
