2011 marks the first birthday in the history of my life where I owned a bar which meant I had to go big. By big, I mean small and by small I mean mini as in mini Burger. What about it makes it big, THEY WERE FREE!!
That’s right! Every Monday at Idle Hands & Billy Hurricanes we give a FREE mini Burgers from That Burger Tent. Dan from That Burger Tent comes down to the bar to make smaller versions of the very popular Burgers he serves on Saturday’s & Sunday’s from his tent in Brooklyn. Dan has his own proprietary Pat LaFrieda blend of ground Beef that he uses in his Burgers and serves them with fresh ingredients on soft and tasty Potato Rolls.
For this party in particular, Dan let me design my very own Burger for the menu and serve ‘em up for one night only while our good buddy Caroline held down the fort as our weekly guest bartender.
THAT REV’S BURGER:
- Meat marinated in Maker’s Mark
- Grilled Pancetta
- Crunchy Peanut Butter
- Order it “Extra Blessing” style where the Patty is grilled with Hot Sauce
Was it good? HELL YEAH! It was amazing. While it sounds like an odd mix and one you might not find any where else, let me assure you, it was awesome. To be honest, it would be difficult to make any of Dan’s Burgers bad.
A big ole thank you to Rob & Marc my partners at Idle Hands for helping me to throw a rad party. Thanks to Dan for making some damn tasty Burgers. Muchas Gracias a Carlos y Jessica for coming down on an off night to hang out with us. Thanks to Caroline for bringing the house down with a rockin’ guest bar tender party. Thanks to Kyle, Roland & Billy for riding shot gun on our party. The biggest of thank yous of all goes to all my friends who came down to party down for the Birthday Burger Bash. Lastly, thank you to my wife Cara who makes every day of my life better than the day before.
