Been looking for that special something for dad this year, but just can't bear to buy another tie this June 21? Well Ted's Butcherblock thinks they have the answer: The Bacon of the Month Club.
To be sure, you can enroll in this club any time of the year but when we saw it featured in a recent e-mail for Father's Day, how could we not smile?
Enroll and you'll get different types of speciality bacon each month. It's cut thick and shipped out in one-pound increments.
Here's the details form the e-mail:
Father's Day is Sunday, June 21, and what dad doesn't love bacon?! Our Bacon of the Month Club, featuring the finest artisan bacon from small-batch farms around the country, is the gift that keeps on giving. We offer 3, 6, and 12-month options, and can deliver anywhere in the country. Cost is $40/3 months, $75/6 months and $150/12 months.
Order during the month of June and receive a free lunch for yourself at Ted's!
If you live in town and want to dodge the shipping costs, I'd see if they'd let you just order a pound each month of the special bacon and come pick it up.
Ted's is at 334 East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. (843) 577-0094.
