The Return of My Weakness for Foods Involving Awkwardly Placed Bacon

Monday, May 18, 2009

I just started reading Cleveland's a Plum, who's clearly from my neck of the woods & who visited DC last weekend. As I started perusing her most recent posts, I was absolutely bowled over to find this photo:

Basically, right now I want nothing more from my life than to drink a Bloody Mary from Bar Pilar, where I've never been. Why? Obviously because IT COMES WITH BACON GARNISH. I don't even like Bloody Marys (I don't think), but for bacon garnish, I could probably talk myself into it.

I know bacon-loving is, like, the newest weird, trendy food obsession, but I gotta be up front about this: I just love me some bacon. To be fair, I don't really love it in strips because bacon fat is, I think, the grossest thing ever, & I have zero desire to look at or ingest it. But as you may have read here (bacon waffle!) & here (bacon chocolate!), I definitely appreciate bacon in its non-strip forms. However, I realize that the Bar Pilar Bloody Mary comes with a bacon
strip of garnish, & I've vowed not to discriminate against forms of my beloved food this time - I want to try this drink, stat.

Oh, & I also want to try Bar Pilar's $7 pancake sandwich. I can only assume this is some extravagant, fancy McGriddle, & my arteries are already screaming in pain, but my taste buds... Ohhh, my taste buds.

(Dear Mom: If you post an "anonymous" comment reminding me of the size-smaller-than-my-body bridesmaid dress I need to fit in by September, I will not call you for a week. You've been warned.)


  1. Wicked! I'm all about the grits and all kinds of Southern foods... but there is no way I'd touch that!

  2. For the record, Tonic started the Bacon in Bloodys trend in DC, though I am not sure if the still do it. Their version had the bacon battered and deep fried (because who doesn't like overkill.)

  3. You gotta know how hard I laugh at the fact that you (more than once) wrote about bacon & that you just raaaave about it. I don't like bacon, at all. But you writing about it makes me wish I did!!


Leave me some love.
