Respect the Pig at Revival Bacon Explosion October 24, Take Monday Off

Watch out! When two porcine buffs get together, a Bacon Explosion may result. So be it when chef Kevin Gillespie and BBQ Addict’s Jason Day bond over bacon at Revival on Saturday, October 24. Day makes his original Bacon Explosion, weaving a pound of bacon around two pounds of juicy sausage that encases a pound of fried bacon crumbles then grills the whole piggy parcel. Gillespie chimes in with additional snacks and well-matched craft beers from nearby Wild Heaven Brewery. Angry Orchard hard ciders also will be served at the noon-3 p.m. party for 100 guests. Live music by George Norman & Friends. Buy tickets on Xorbia: $30 price includes food and two drinks; $50 option throws in a copy of Gillespie’s “Pure Pork Awesomeness” cookbook.

Revival is turning off the fryer and cooling the ovens on Mondays to give the hardworking staff a day of rest each week. Fried chicken fans need not panic about missing out on a day of crisp-tender goodness and Southern trimmings. The Decatur restaurant now serves dinner on Saturdays beginning at 11 a.m. instead of 5 p.m. Raise a toast to Saturday with a selection from the updated wine and cocktail lists. Make
 reservations online or call 470-225-6770.
