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).
