I was joking when I referred to myself as being on the bacon beat, but with bacon fixation still echoing through the zeitgeist, it’s looking like a self-fulfilling prophecy. So . . .

The self-proclaimed “bad boys of brunch” at the Fifty/50 have unveiled a new menu with all-you-can-eat bacon for $10.95. “This isn’t a plate of soggy buffet-style wimpy bacon,” the PR boasts. “Your server wil keep your plate full of crisp, thick-cut smoked bacon as long as you can keep putting it down.” Brunch runs Friday through Sunday from 10 AM to 3 PM.

A better deal might be at Chinaski’s, reported to have free all-you-can-eat-bacon nights on Mondays.

The folks over at Onion’s AV Club are having a ball grossing themselves out with a taste test of office-brewed bacon-infused vodka (though apparently the Yoders canned bacon they sampled for a previous taste test has the edge in that respect, and this still takes the cake for bacon-related novelties, if you ask me). If you’re reluctant to try it at home, Sepia is still serving its Bloody Mary made with bacon-infused vodka.

And finally, there’s this paean to bacon in the form of a flowchart.
