Get Bacon To-Go From 3; Truckeroo Debuts Tomorrow

CLARENDON—Restaurant 3 already cures and cuts its own bacon for dishes like its bacon-studded waffles with maple bacon ice cream. The next natural move is to sell it. Starting June 8, you'll be able to pick up slabs of 3's in-house hickory-smoked bacon at the restaurant for $12/lb. The meat, which chef Brian Robinson cures for five to seven days, is all heritage hog from Virginia farms like Polyface and Babes in the Wood. It's just their signature flavor available at first, but expect more flavors in the future. [EaterWire]

EVENT PLANNING—It's a veritable food truck extravaganza tomorrow at the first Truckeroo gathering near Nationals Park. About 17 trucks — including the Red Hook Lobster Pound, TaKorean, Sauca and Pleasant Pops — will be parked across from the Navy Yard Metro station from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow for the first in a series of monthly festivals. There'll also be live music, free gifts and beer available from Das Bullpen. [FTF]

EVENT PLANNING—Bibiana chef Nick Stefanelli will be preparing a four-course meal from author Domenica Marchetti's new cookbook, The Glorious Pasta of Italy, on Tuesday, June 7. The dinner begins at the downtown restaurant with a reception at 6:30 p.m. and will showcase various pasta dishes from the book like curried pasta with mussels and shrimp and a dessert walnut-and-almond-stuffed pasta. Tickets are $90 per person, including wine; reservations can be made by calling (202) 216-9550. [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS—In more food truck news, ARLnow has it that yet another cupcake truck has joined the fray. Sweet Fleet, which will have cookies too, will be serving all of Arlington. [ARLnow]

GEORGETOWN—Georgetown Dish reports that Georgetown Cupcake has hired off-duty police officers to watch over its crazy line. Apparently, the pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the corner of 33rd and M streets can get a little out of control. [GD via DCist]
