This weekend it’s crucial to take advantage of what’s going on outside of Georgetown. Partially because the weather is about to cool down, but mostly because some of the best annual events and festivals are about to wrap up.
Would you care for more bacon to go with your … bacon?
Speaking of wrap, we could really go for some bacon-wrapped pork and cornbread. (Sort of.) To celebrate National Bacon Week, Restaurant 3 is offering bacon-spruced dishes [PDF].
Ever try bacon cheddar soup, bacon fritters, bacon martinis, bacon waffles, or maple bacon ice cream? If not, skip out on Leo’s sub-par bacon slabs this weekend and celebrate the second annual glorification of America’s favorite greasy side dish in style.
Hop on Ye Olde Metro and Ride all the way back to Medieval Times! Huzzah!
Some of our friends recently went to the Maryland Renaissance Festival and came back raving about the jousting contests, the throwing of various weaponry—knives, axes, in an odd anachronistic turn, ninja stars—Shakespeare plays, comedians, giant turkey legs, peasant bread, and fried cheese. (And of course, the other delectable modern treats, such as fried Oreos and ice cream.)
So grab your friends, saddle up to your noble steed (er … car), and head on over before the festival draws to a close. The festival is slated to run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on October 16, 17, 23, and 24.
