Restaurant Three Gears Up for Bacon Week

The third annual Week ‘O’ Bacon at Restaurant Three (2950 Clarendon Blvd) is set to get started tomorrow.

From Thursday to Saturday, Oct. 22, the Clarendon restaurant will be devoting an entire menu to its in-house cured and smoked bacon. Among the items on the menu:

  • Bacon on a stick
  • Bacon cheese dip with bacon-dusted potato chips
  • Wedge salad with bacon bits
  • Bacon noodle soup
  • Bacon-crusted chicken wings
  • Country fried bacon with mashed potatoes and bacon gravy
  • Pork loin wrapped with pulled pork and bacon. Also comes with bacon and cornbread stuffing and beer-braised bacon Brussels sprouts.
  • Bacon-studded waffle with maple bacon ice cream
  • Bacon Martini and a Bacon Bloody Mary (both with bacon-infused vodka and a bacon garnish)

The bacon festivities will kick off tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. with a pig roast and $5 pork sandwiches. Each night of bacon week will feature a bacon happy hour from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., complete with bacon specials. Sunday’s brunch will feature a Bacon Benedict and the “Graceland Waffle” — a bacon waffle topped with caramelized bananas and a caramel/peanut sauce.

“We love bacon here at 3, and decided 3 years ago that we wanted to make a week-long celebration of bacon and dedicate an entire menu to it,” the restaurant said on its web site. “We have been curing and smoking fresh pork bellies since we opened and are really proud of the bacon we make. We worked hard on this year’s menu to make sure that every item was full of bacon flavor. We hope that you enjoy it and have as much fun as we have had creating it.”

Three’s Week ‘O’ Bacon is popular among locals, but it has even gained nationwide notoriety thanks to a Travel Channel segment filmed at the restaurant last year.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
