Is it possible to have too many bacon t-shirts?

This one is pretty great: Haiku About Bacon T-Shirt

Bacon always wins

And in case you missed it, brunch and the city was featured in Washingtonian yesterday!

You Had Me at Bacon

I love getting sent links like the one below.  My friends know me so well! Now the question is, which one to buy? If they were on aprons I’d be sold, but I don’t really wear t-shirts.  I still love them and the rest of the collection is definitely worth checking out.

Bacon Week at Restaurant 3

I saw this mouth-watering announcement from Dining in DC and had to pass it along.  Because, really, what’s better than a restaurant dedicating an entire week to bacon?

During The Week of Bacon (October 21-27), Arlington’s Restaurant 3 will have a special 3-course bacon tasting menu for $30.  According to Dining in DC:

Each day for the duration of the week of bacon, the restaurant will offer a daily Bacon Happy Hour, where bar guests can feast on bacon bites such as bacon on a stick & bacon-wrapped shrimp and wash it all down with $3 craft beer draft specials.

Executive Chef Brian Robinson cures all his own bacon in-house and is a firm believer in the foodie philosophy that, “Everything tastes better with bacon,” a philosophy that he looks forward to sharing with his guests through his gut-busting Bacon Tasting Menu being offered throughout the duration of the Week of Bacon. Priced at $30 per person, the menu will feature some of Robinson’s favorite food and bacon pairings such as Bacon & Eggs and Maple Bacon Ice Cream.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?  You can see the full tasting menu here.

For the love of bacon

Last week, Endless Simmer posted The Top 10 Top 10 Food Lists.  And what top 10 list that relates to food would be complete without bacon?  Sure enough, at #2 was The Top 10 Creative Ways to Enjoy Bacon.   Read, drool, and go find yourself a good BLT for lunch.

I’ve said before that I swear by greasy bacon as a hangover cure.  It looks like there is now some scientific evidence that it can, in fact, help you get through a hangover. Aaah, the magical wonders of bacon!
