Getting Up Guide: Bailouts and Bacon Week
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Monday:
The man put in charge of the U.S. government's bailout of the auto industry discusses and signs his new book, "Overhaul: An Insider's Account of the Obama Administration's Emergency Rescue of the Auto Industry," at 7 p.m.
The DC Labor FilmFest rolls along with Matt Damon's turn as conflicted whistleblower Mark Whitacre in Steven Soderbergh's darkly comic "The Informant!" If the sight of a puffy Damon wearing a Tom Selleck mustache isn't enough of a gag, the film's vaudevillian score, composed by the inimitable Marvin Hamlisch, will do the trick. The film begins at 7 p.m.
Did you see those shots of the bacon-wrapped steak after the commercial break during the Redskins-Colts game last night? That was a snapshot of the offerings for Restaurant 3's Bacon Week, which features a three-course bacon-infused menu, bacon-making classes, bacon cocktail specials and bacon-maple ice cream. Appetizers include bacon-on-a-stick and bacon cheddar soup, entrees are bacon shrimp and grits or pork three ways, and the coda to the whole thing is a surprisingly well-balanced dessert that tops a bacon-studded waffle with maple-bacon ice cream.
