Bacon with your booze, a toy drive with drink specials and a coffee beer's special day.

UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS— Carnivore central, aka the new S&M Sausage and Meat, just launched a new weekday happy hour that involves free bacon. Yes, free bacon. From 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, all the drinks on the restaurant's alcoholic beverage menu, from craft beer to wine and craft cocktails, are $2 off and come with a complimentary strip of the eatery's housemade bacon; current bacon flavors range from honey-sriracha to sesame-soy, mustard and hickory.
