I love bacon. I’ve always loved bacon but this love is different, it’s newer, more evolved. I come from a family where we eat.. turkey bacon (are you already de-friending me on Facebook?) Honestly, it’s not that bad!

BUT, nothing compares to the sizzling aroma and taste of pork bacon. Bacon on the side of a bowl of grits. Bacon, just cooked, on a BLT. Bacon chocolate chip cookies. No, really. If you haven’t discovered the magic of bacon and sweets together it’s phenomenal.

Today I tried a restaurant: Bacon. It’s on the corner of 10th and Lamar where The Screaming Goat used to be. Eat there! It’s fantastic. It’s counter service and the staff behind the counter is patient and helpful. They understand the use of bacon in and on everything is new and a novelty. They also know it’s fantastic and they’re not afraid to tell you. There’s plenty of room inside to eat with one wall being used to project a movie. You’ll want to sit outside of course, on one of the yellow picnic tables. Grab a tea or Maine Root Beer on your way out the door. (They’ve got that crunchy, tiny pellet ice. Can’t pass that up!) Both my date and I got chicken and waffles. You will not be able to finish this, no matter how excited you are when it arrives. It is two enormous pieces of well salted, juicy fried chicken on top of a malted vanilla waffle. Get ready to clog your arteries, delight your tastebuds and cry with delight for Bacon does not disappoint. I also tried a bite of a bacon snicker doodle cookie. Yes.

Chances are there is not enough bacon in your life. Seek it out.

Sit Down Restaurants Are For Dummies

Food Trailers make my life. I’m not kidding. East 6th Food Trailer Park is a glorious semi-circle of culinary delights. To the left you’ll experience all the tastes of Greece, to the right a trailer just for egg sandwiches. I love eggs! Look forward to Mexico and a trailer dedicated only to bacon. Just to bacon! I would dedicate my life to bacon if wouldn’t also simultaneously destroy it…. Nothing like rapid weight gain and clogged arteries to ruin a girl’s day.

But then maybe you’re already at the bar. And you’re hungry. But it’s a bar, they don’t serve food…Except there’s a food trailer in the back yard! Destiny! Who would have thought of such a thing?

My new love: Liberty Bar


The Liberty sells my new fave beer Fire Eagle by Austin Beer Works (as well as many other fine beverages I never stop to sample). They also have an enormous outside area filled picnic tables and to top it all off a food trailer out back. As you walk outside you’ll start the delicious smells of beets frying and chicken cooking with onions , cilantro and jalapenos. Your knees will weaken, your mouth will water and your feet will inevitably end up right in front of East Side King. Eat it. You’ll love it.


On an another note, I thought I’d google image search: ruin a girl’s day and this is what I found:
