Its getting all kinds of national attention. The Whitecaps do this kind of stuff better than just about anybody when it comes to generating publicity in introducing a new food item. In the spirit of the "5th 3rd Burger" and "Chicks with Sticks" comes the newest creation of the 'Caps and 5th 3rd Ballpark. The Baco. The What?

Its a taco. You know with cheese and lattuce and tomato...and a shall made out of bacon. Yes, bacon. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Here's just one of the national news stories I have seen in the last 24 hours about the Baco. From "Enjoy a Taco with a Bacon Shell at West Michigan Whitecaps Games"

"Crazy food can definitely be an extra push to draw me in to a minor league ballpark. Are you ready for Baco? It’s the taco with a bacon shell. From The Detroit News: “Those who come to see the West Michigan Whitecaps play will have the opportunity to chow down on a Baco, a taco with a specially made bacon shell. The Baco was the top vote-getter in the fourth annual Whitecaps food contest, which determines Fifth Third Ballpark’s next culinary delight.”

Everyday I get a Tweet from the Whitecaps counting down until opening day. 20 days and counting. Cant wait!
