One way to enjoy your Monday…

It’s Monday. We’re back at work after a great Chicago summer weekend. What could Monday possibly have for us to enjoy? How about this:

Monday bacon!  Tuesday the shits!

All you can eat?!?!? I know vegetarians are probably disgusted, and as an omnivore even I’m thinking, “two pieces of bacon should be sufficient.” However, I know that bacon has some ravenous fans that will take up this offer (or challenge).

To find out more head for the Whiskey Road at 1935 N. Damen. Even if “all u can eat bacon” is not your thing, it’s still a nice little bar. They have tasty burgers (beef, turkey, crab, and veggie). It’s also the only place I’ve found that serves one of my favorite foods, fried pickle chips. Plus, Monday is not only “all u can eat bacon”, but also movie night. I go to Whiskey Road on Thursdays at 9pm for a stand-up comedy open mic run by the awesome Chicago comedian Adam Burke (here’s a sample of his stand-up).

Don’t like any of those things? Then draw on the chalk board walls or enjoy some one else’s chalk drawing of the physical embodiment of two euphemisms for self love.

If you go tonight, let me know how much bacon u ate.

    Oldglutton, I am proud to be a part of your super awesome bacon roundup. The bacon suit alone is worth the price of admission.

    Jason, You have ownership of the greatest domain name known to man: mrbaconpants.com. If I’m in Pittsburgh I’ll on a Tuesday I’ll have to indulge.

    Salaboutme, You just listed my favorite foods in one paragraph. I’ve been wanting to check out Reggies since it opened, and now I HAVE to go some time soon.

    My mouth is still burned from that first bite of fried pickle, but it was worth it!
