Bacon Ain’t Playin’

Bacon - Home to Happiness

 

Dear Bacon:

Tonight, I can’t sleep. It’s not your fault  but I thought I would send you this note while I am working on pleasant things that will put me to sleep.

You see, I visited your fine establishment last week. And I truly enjoyed myself. From the moment, I heard that you were completely focused on my favorite cured food, I thought, “I hope this was done well.”  There is a fine line between art and crap, or funny and corny or classy and campy The same could have been the case with you, Bacon.

But Bacon, when my eyes first glanced at you, I noticed that someone had payed great attention to detail. Someone had done a great job. Then I found out that Sanctuary Printshop was involved. Well played. Everything seems to work well. The neon Bacon logo is warm and inviting. The one-color, silk-screen menus layout was delightful and easy to read. But my favorite part may have been the Bacon door handles.

Texas Toast, Bacon, Eggs and More!

Now, don’t get me wrong Bacon, the place is great but I don’t want the visuals in your establishment to overshadow the food. This is the real test. You had a wonderful special the day I went—Texas toast, apple-smoked bacon, organic arugula, fresh tomatoes topped with a sunny-side up egg and covered in a cheese sauce. Oh the joy! The best part was, I didn’t have that dirty feeling you get when you eat something dirty. In fact, my heart was happy and was ready for my afternoon run. Yup, it’s true!

So, if my heart could hug yours, it would.

And now, I hope to get some sleep and, hopefully, I will dream of Bacon!

Love your new friend,
Antonio + Team OhSpooning.
