CLARENDON—Attention, attention: The Week 'O' Bacon begins tomorrow. Clarendon's Restaurant 3 is well-known for going all-out with bacon and they're bringing back their annual celebration starting tomorrow with a pig roast on their patio. Also involved in this Week of Bacon: a curing class, a $30 bacon tasting menu available throughout the week, a "bacon stand" where you can pick up chef Brian Robinson's house-made bacon to-go,, a daily bacon happy hour and a bacon brunch, which features a pretty damn amazing bacon-studded Graceland Waffle.

WEST ENDRis has announced an expansion to its to-go program that involves pastry chef Chris Kujala's ice cream and sorbet. From now on, you'll be able to get either a cup, quart or a pint of a seasonal rotation of flavors such as apple cinnamon and buttered popcorn. [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS—Glover Park restaurant Surfside has had a food truck in the works for some time now, having made appearances at Truckeroo and also at the Taste of DC this past weekend. But today seems to have been the truck's maiden voyage serving grilled tacos to the people of Washington. [WCP]

BOOZE NEWS—DCist brings the very important news that your early Sunday morning drinking routine can soon start even earlier each week. Some legal revisions have meant that DC restaurants can apply to start serving booze at 8 a.m. on Sundays rather than 10 a.m. They have to apply with the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration first, though, and none have been approved yet. The restaurants with pending applications: Chef Geoff's Downtown, Madhatter, The Park at 14th, Dynasty Ethiopian, Lucky Bar and The Café Lombardy. [DCist]
