This local bar has an incredible chef who chooses a theme for Wednesday nights for a month.  December is a celebration of BACON!  
Check out this menu:

All the dishes sounded unique... made it very hard to choose!  N. and I had a grand time sharing four dishes tonight.  See my notes and photos under the cut 


1) Bacon Satay -  four skewers of bacon with thai peanut sauce
        This dish didn't work for me.  The bacon was thick.. I liked it thin and crispy.  And the sauce didn't quite work with it. 

2) Shrimp wrapped in jalapeño bacon with sweet chili sauce
        This dish seemed the most "normal" with four perfectly cooked large shrimp wrapped in crisp bacon with a slight spice.  I squeezed a little lime over it and it was yummy. 

3) Bacon Poutine - waffle fries with bacon, cheese curds, bacon onion gravy and a fried egg on top
        This was a cross between nachos and an egg mcmuffin.  There were too many fries or not enough topping, and it was a little bland.  

4) Chicken fried bacon with bacon cheese grits and bacon cheese biscuit.  
        WOW!  This was more like canadian bacon, coated and fried, with a yummy bacon onion gravy.  The cheesy bacon grits were stellar.  The biscuits were tiny - just a little bite.  This is the dish that will send me back to order again!

Ditto, especially since I live two blocks from there.

I am so with you on that one. (How hard can it ber to make, too. If you live too far away to make it there.)

I've tried a couple of times and never been completely satisfied with the results. I've done a lot more cooking since the last time I made an attempt--should try again!

I cannot wait for the 14th! We're going to be arriving in Davis between 6-6:30. Any chance we could ask for a ride from the T to have dinner with you two?
