on the ROX

In case you haven't heard, Richmond, we're about to get our first Bacon Festival.

I know, of course you've heard. Everyone's heard and everyone in Richmond has all-out lost their minds over the June 9 Brown Distributing and Devils Backbone Bacon Festival in Shockoe Bottom. 

But did you also know that right around the corner from the 17th Street Farmers Market, On The ROX, has a bacon happy hour, every weekday, with free bacon?

Because they do.

The details are this:

Monday - Friday, 6 - 7 p.m., FREE BACON (with beer or wine or booze or any other food purchase.) It's that simple.

Of course, On The ROX's regular happy hour isn't too shabby either: Monday - Friday, 3 - 7 p.m., 1/2 off all beer, wine and drinks (except a few fancy large beer bottles). Half-off. Every weekday.

And appetizers and sandwiches are also half-off Monday - Friday, 3 - 6 p.m.

And then free bacon. Monday - Friday, 6 -7 p.m. Pretty sweet. (They'll be closed Memorial Day, FYI.)

Check it out.

On the ROX is at 119 N. 18th St. in Shockoe Bottom.
