It's not everyday you get to catch some of Seattle's best indie bands in a unique setting like Safeco Field. The Bacon and Beer Classic is a one-of-a-kind event hosted inside major league baseball stadiums across America. The unique event Saturday, May 17 at Safeco Field features Seattle favorites Campfire OK and Hey Marseilles, along with hundreds of craft brew samples and mouth-watering bacon-inspired tastes local restaurants cook up. It's not quite summer, but it's so unique we had to recommend it.
