WHAT IS INDY BACON WEEK?

Sizzlin' Bacon Specials for $5.00. For a week.

Indy Bacon Week is a week-long celebration of our belief that everything is better with bacon. NUVO partnered with local restaurants and chefs to create appetizing specials featuring breakfast’s best side, bacon. We’re not doing this just for us, though we will be partaking in as many bacon dishes as we can, Indy Food Weeks support a good cause, Second Helpings, and offer a great excuse to try a new restaurant. And at $5.00, you’ll have plenty of cash left for a side and a beer (or three).

BACON WEEK PRO TIPS

GO SOMEWHERE NEW
Try somewhere new. Spice up your date night or your lunch break. Eat something awesome. Tell your friends about it and come back with them later.

TAKE IT HOW YOU GET IT
Some restaurants will offer dine-in only options for Indy Bacon Week. Some may offer carryout or delivery only. They have their reasons, and they are very good ones. Just go with it.
THERE’S A SOLID CHANCE RESTAURANTS WILL RUN OUT OF THEIR BACON SPECIAL
Expect that restaurants will be busy. If a place runs out, take it like a champ. Go back the next day, go earlier, order your bacon, and thank them for working hard to do this for you.

THERE MAY EVEN BE WAITS
This will be a sizzling deal and people love bacon. So don’t be surprised if restaurants have waits. In fact, be pleasantly surprised if they don’t.
