THE CONQUEST
“What can we do that’s different?” That’s how the conversation started when I sat down with Harry & Kenny from The Bar Room. Their excitement and desire to be a part of NY Burger Week was infectious. The Bar Room is brightly lit (thanks to an awesome skylight), upscale bar with a small dining room, interesting cocktails, a selection of Craft Beers and a short menu of really nice upscale Pub Fare. It’s not really a Burger joint per se, but they do regularly feature a Burger made with Burger Maker’s Steakburger, topped with Vermont Cheddar Cheese, sliced Pickles, melted Onions, and housemade Aioli. If you want to know more about, please check out the review on BurgerWeeky. But what they don’t have is a Mexican themed menu…until now.

Price: $49

Includes:

  • 1 Welcome Tequila Cocktail
  • 1 Mexican style appetizer
  • 1 Dos Equis Beer Cocktail
  • 1 Off-menu Mexican Style Burger
  • 1 Side of Nachos
  • 1 Mexican style dessert

To celebrate Cinco De Mayo, The Burger Week has teamed up with The Bar Room (117 E. 60th St) for a Mexican-themed Burger feast. On May 5, you’ll be treated to a special pre-fixe dinner designed by The Bar Room Chef Kenny Brand. The event includes a 5-course Mexican themed dinner with 3 Dishes and 2 Cocktails, including a Beer Cocktail made with Dos Equis. The star of the show will be a Mexican-spiced Burger Patty topped with Aged Cheddar, Grilled Tomato, Fresh-made Pico de Gallo and a side of Nachos (replacing the standard French Fries). The Burger will be made with Burger Maker’s fresh “Certified Angus Beef Steakburger” which includes only fresh Certified Angus Beef trimming that are upper two-thirds USDA Choice.

THE BURGER:
Seeing as how the event was going to fall on Cinco De Mayo, a date that is observed in the US as a celebration of appreciation to Mexico in warding off would-be French support for the Confederate States of America in the Civil War, it only seemed to make sense that we theme it around the day. When I suggested it to Harry & Kenny from The Bar Room a resounding and excited approval came right back at me. They went to work and came up with a pretty awesome pre-fixe menu centered around a Mexican-themed Burger. Like the event poster says, I don’t normally eat Mexican Burgers, but when I do, it’s during NY Burger Week at The Bar Room.

Jalapeño Poppers from scratch with a Smoked Pepper Dipping Sauce, stuffed with Cream Cheese, Bacon and Onion.

NY_The_Burger_Week_NYC_2014_The_Bar_Room_Mexican_Burger_Most_Interesting_Man_In_the_World_050514_4492

Paired with 1 “Ransom Buck” cocktail which consists of Tequila, Habanero Syrup, White Pepper and Ginger Beer.

Thank you as always goes to those of you who came out and enjoyed the event. I hope you enjoyed the Food as much as I did. Special thanks goes to Michael & Kurt, 2 Burger Week veterans who had so much fun that they wanted to come again. Also, a special nod of thanks to Kathy from the Food Film Fest. It was fun to see you outside of our normal environment. To Harry, Kenny, Antonia, Adelyn, Kyle, Pierce and everyone else from The Bar Room, thank you very much. Turning over your dining room to an event with 2 seatings and a menu of Food you don’t normally offer on a holiday is no small task. You handled it like champs and it was a pleasure to work with you. I’m going to name Brad Garoon as the event VIP. Brad is the Chief Eating Officer (yes I’m taking ownership of this term) at BurgerWeekly. If you love Hamburgers, it’s a never ending stream of delicious pictures and reviews of Burgers primarily in the New York area. I love it. He worked extra, extra, extra hard to help promote not only this event which he helped me to present, but all of NY Burger Week. Brad also ran around the city with me a couple weeks before the events and in one day taste tested 6 different Burgers. It was an EPIC day of eating and because I had a stomach bug, he had to do all of it. You are true brother of the Burgerverse and I appreciate all you do.

Burger Week, Where Conquest & Beast Meet – Guest Blog

Burger Week, Where Conquest & Beast Meet

Burger_Beast_Photo_Al_Diaz_Miami_Herald

It was really only a matter of time before our worlds collided. Burger Conquest and Burger Beast blogs began at around the same time and would trail similar paths on opposite sides of the United States. I read as Rev ate and preached the Burger Gospel to the folks up north while I was doing the same for the people of South Florida. There was/is no denying our passion as just writing about Burgers wasn’t enough. We both decided to jump into action and create events to showcase the perfectest (Yes, I’m pretending it’s a word) Sandwich ever. Here’s a little Wizard of Oz behind the curtain kind comment, it’s sometimes a thankless job. It’s great to be able to sit back after an event and watch an idea you have that blossomed into a culinary party. We don’t do it for the money involved because a lot of times there isn’t any, this is where passion comes into play. You have to love it and we both do.

I had not met Rev yet I felt a kinship to him, we both had similar visions. We followed each other on social media and kept up with what we were each doing via all these social media platforms. The first time we had a conversation was about Grill ‘Em All during the period of time where they won the first season of the Great Food Truck Race, it’s best season as far as I’m concerned. He also facilitated my interview with them for my Q&A called The Grinder.

Whenever he mentioned he was gonna make a TV appearance I always made a note to watch it and cheer him on. I had started a facebook fan page for National Hamburger Month in 2010 and asked him to become one of the editors for it. And then two years later he started Burger Week and he was off to the races. I was doing events throughout South Florida at the same time. I kept asking him when was he going to come to Miami. Now, before you say to yourself why don’t I go to New York, the truth is I did a few years back but Rev blew me off. Just kidding. It was one of those things where we couldn’t co-ordinate or he was out of town, the point is it didn’t happen. So then years passed….

national_hamburger_month_burger_beast_south_florida_burger_week

At the end of last year (2013) I decided it was time I created a Burger competition with hand picked restaurants known for their Burgers, not just because they serve Burgers. As you can imagine I’ve attended a bunch of Burger Events but it was easy to spot when a favor was called in or when a sponsor put a restaurant in place. I wanted final control of who should participate regardless of who the sponsors might end up being. I had a meeting with Magic City Casino, who have been my more than excellent partners for a bunch of great events in South Florida and they were not only excited but agreed to do 5 big events together for 2014 of which the now named Burger Beast Burger Brawl (4B) would be the first. I’m sure you know, timing is everything in life and at the exact same moment the 4B was coming to life, Rev had accepted a job with Burger Maker. I took it as a sign that this meant we should work together and finally connect our worlds. A few days later we talked about my ideas for 4B and Burger Maker was in. And yes, I’m the only decision maker when it comes to participates in the 4B. But it didn’t end there…

Burger Week needed to make its first South Florida appearance. Rev thought we should have one more event, so the afternoon following the Burger Brawl is the Pincho Factory Burger Brunch sponsored by Burger Maker. These two events now make up what is being called South Florida Burger Week(end). If you’re in South Florida and you’re a Burger fan you should be embarrassed if you miss out on both events. And I can’t wait til next year for the 2015 Burger Week in South Florida cause we’re gonna kill it.

One last thing, Rev and I finally met during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in February of 2014. I took him and Rodney from Burger Junkies (another fellow Burger Blogger from the Sacramento area) to El Mago de las Fritas to try our regional Burger specialty, la Frita Cubana. We met my other blogging bud Droolius from Orlando and enjoyed Fritas & of course Chicharrones, the Saturday special. My wife captured the moment perfectly with all of us in full blogging mode and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Who is the Burger Beast? Burger Beast like to write about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I’ve added News, Opinions, Tips & Events on a variety of Food related subjects to the blog but my first love will always be Burgers.

THE CONQUEST
There were 2 key events that lead to the creation of NY Burger Week. The first was a National Hamburger Day party I hosted in 2010 at Rare Bar & Grill. On that day, readers of this blog were invited to join myself and George Motz for a “Louis Lunch” style Burger at Rare. At the time, it was the highest attended event Burger Conquest had ever done. The following February, I teamed up with Andrew Fischel and threw an off-menu Burger Bash at Rub BBQ. The event sold out in minutes and a 2nd seating was added. It was such a huge success that we wanted to make it an annual event.

That was the birth of the signature event of Burger Week, the Burger Brunch. Six more events were created and boom, NY had it’s very own Burger Week. Sadly, later that year Rub BBQ, home to the BEST Burger I’ve ever eaten, closed it’s doors.  In 2013 Chef Jeff Maslanka took over the duty and we hosted the Burger Brunch at 67 Burger in Brooklyn. In 2014, the Burger Brunch came full circle for the 3rd Annual NY Burger Week.

Includes:

  • The Rare Drunken Trio of Mini Burgers
  • Bourbon & Tequila Tasting

The Burger Week began many years ago at a boozy Burger brunch and for 2014 the tradition continues! Rare Bar & Grill (303 Lexington Ave) will host Boozed Up Burgers With a Tequila & Whiskey Tasting Brunch on Sunday, May 4th for the 3rd Annual NY Burger Week. Proprietor and Burger aficionado, Douglas Boxer, has put together a Drunken Trio of Burgers, each of which is flambeed in a different liquor. You’ll taste all three as well as Rare Bar & Grill’s delicious Sweet Potato Chips topped with a Honey Drizzle.

Along with the Drunken Trio Burgers, you’ll enjoy an expertly lead tasting of small batch Tequila and Bourbon. Returning to the Burger Week, liquor expert Jessica Partington from Heaven Hill will lead a tasting of Lunazul’s Blanco and Anejo Tequilas along with Elijah Craig 12 year Bourbon.

THE BURGERS
There’s a lot of ways you could make a Burger Brunch “boozy.” When it came to this year’s party, I thought working with Rare Bar & Grill would be fun since they have a menu of Burgers that are flambeed in different liquors. How else to make it fun? Invite the guys from Gotham Burger Social Club to join. If you follow them on instagram you’ll be privy to a never ending stream of amazing Burger porn, refreshing looking Cocktails and a lot of dudes in suits. It’s definitely one of the classiest Burger clubs out there.

Jameson Black Barrel Burger – Fresh ground ribeye, flambéed in Jameson Black Barrel select reserve atop its aged whiskey slaw & smothered with white Irish cheddar.

We had so much fun with the Bourbon Tasting event during the 2nd Annual NY Burger Week at Hardings with “Bourbon Jess” Partington from Heaven Hill, that I asked her to come back and be a part of Burger Week again. As this event was the day after the Kentucky Derby and the day before Cinco De Mayo, Jessica suggested we do a tasting of both a Bourbon and a Tequila. It was a good call because both of them were very delicious. Jessica is an expert on these spirits and gave everyone a little lesson about their history and how to “properly” taste them.

Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the Boozy Burger Brunch. Events like this are not easy to do and pretty stressful on a kitchen. You guys were super patient and really fun to serve. You made this a great event. Thank you very much to Doug, Katie, Sergio, Eddie, Jess and everyone else at Rare Bar & Grill. They were the very first restaurant to reach out and ask to be a part of the 3rd Annual NY Burger Week. Thank you to the Gotham Burger Social Club. You guys worked really hard to help promote this event … and finish off the Tequila. I really appreciate the help and had a blast hanging with you again. Last and certainly not least, a big big big THANK YOU goes to Bourbon Jess. You are officially now a part of Burger Week and I anxiously look forward to working with you again in 2015.

Who eats 10 Burgers in one day? Last year during the 2nd Annual Amstel Light NY Burger Crawl you did! New York City however is not to be outdone and this year for the 3rd annual you ate 14 BURGERS IN ONE DAY!!!! We had so much fun in 2013 that I knew we had to bring the event back and make it even bigger. Thanks to Amstel Light, the official Beer of the Burger, we were able to make it happen again. Amstel Light is the Beer that Beer drinkers drink when they’re having a light Beer … with a Burger. Amstel Light is made with only 4 ingredients; Water, Hops, Yeast & Malted Barley. It comes from a brewing tradition that dates back to 1870 in Amsterdam. It’s a perfect Beer to have when you are having 14 of them at 14 different NYC bars with 14 different Burgers. 

This year’s Burger Crawl was made even more special as it was a fund raiser for Autism Speaks. Their goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. Thanks to help from Burger MakerThe Food Film FestBurger LiftBurgerator, BurgerWeekly & Gift Courture, a portion of every ticket sold to the crawl will be donated to their organization.

THE BURGERS
Once again I teamed up with Mighty-Mike Fox from Edit Beach, who was named the 2013 Burger Week VIP, and our friend Jerry to go out on the Burger Crawl. We tried our best to make it to every single location and eat every single Burger. We met so many great people as we walked around the city on a gorgeous day while having a great time. I want to give a special shout out to Daina from The Hungry Fan and her friend Garrett who paced along the crawl with us.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 3rd annual Amstel Light NY Burger Crawl. Only in a city like New York can you do something this crazy, fun and delicious. I got the chance to speak with a lot of you who participated and it seemed like you were having an awesome day filled with Burgers and Beers from Amstel Light. I’m really proud of what we were able to accomplish together in raising money for Autism Speaks. A big thank you goes to Amstel Light and the Heineken family. They are the ones that make this possible. Coordinating with 14 bars is a lot of work and they helped to facilitate that task. The biggest of thank you’s goes to all of the bars who participated. I appreciate all that you did to help promote the event and the great customer service you showed everyone who was out on the crawl. You guys are the stars of the show and your dedication to serving good Beer and Burgers to the people is outstanding. Thank you to the Burger Lift and Burgeator teams. Hopefully you got a chance to spend a few minutes with them and see how they are working to improve the Burgerverse. A sincere tip of the hat goes to the entire staff of Idle Hands Bar, especially Chef Dennis Hatziner, who cooked up a whopping 480 ounces of Ground Beef just during the crawl. You guys all worked very hard to make the first stop on the crawl a fun and tasty place to be. I’d also like to thank Sarah from Gift Couture for donating Cheeseburger Wrapping Paper to be given away to one lucky crawler. There are way too too too too many to name but thank you to every single person, media outlet, promotional partner and just about anyone who took the time to write a story, publish a blog post, send out a tweet, post to Facebook and Instagram any picture, message or otherwise that helped bring attention to this event. I truly, truly appreciate your support. It took every single one of the people and outlets named in this section to make this happen and raise money for Autism Speaks. It’s really just proof that you can help others by eating delicious Burgers and washing them down with refreshing Beers.

THE CONQUEST
7 days is not a long time. The Burger Week practically ends just as soon as it starts. With so many great Burgers in NYC, the best way for me to get as many of them into your mouth as I can is by putting together a Burger gathering where you can sample many in one night. Enter The NY Burger Feast – a walk around Burger sampling party of some of the best Burgers in the business. The party was hosted by Hudson Common in the Hudson Hotel. They have a beautiful indoor / outdoor space that already has a Beer hall and a Burger bar. It was the perfect place to hold the NY Burger Feast. The event was sponsored by Burger Maker, a fresh ground Beef processor located in Carlstadt, NJ that also happens to be my place of work. We are known for supplying the highest quality of product and customer service in the Food service industry. Burger Maker offers a range of quality products including Certified Angus Beef, Angus Chuck, Prime and Ground Chuck patties and Ground Beef in vacuum bags. This event was the perfect way to let you taste what our customers can do.

What would The NY Burger Week be without a big burger party? Right? We hear you and we agree and that’s why we created THE NY BURGER FEAST. Join us on Friday, May 2nd for an exclusive Burger party at Hudson Common in the Hudson hotel for a burger and beer feast of epic proportions. We’ve invited some of the best Burger spots around to come and serve you some of the tastiest burgers in the biz. Each restaurant will be showing you their best by offering a signature Burger from their menu using a selection of Burger Maker’s high-quality, fresh ground beef. You’ll go from table to table as you walk around enjoying delicious burgers. Wash it all down with a selection of local craft beers on tap at Hudson Common.

THE BURGERS:
Let’s be honest, it’s kind of unfair for me to rate / review / praise, etc, etc these Burgers since I’ve already let you know that I work for the company that makes the Burger Meat. What I can tell you is that there is no way I would’ve ever taken the job at Burger Maker if I wasn’t already a fan of their product and business practices. You can go back through this blog and you’ll see I’ve been giving them praise for a number of years. They even sponsored the Burger Week in the past. My words here are pretty genuine. When I came up with the idea of the NY Burger Feast with the Hudson Hotel peeps, I wanted to give the opportunity to some of Burger Maker’s customers to come out and show you what they do with our Meat. We say it all the time at the office, we are only 25% of the equation. It’s what the Chef’s do with our Burgers once they have them. To the hundreds of people who got a chance to attend the event, they really did get to eat some of the best of the best.

All the ground Beef we supplied for the event was ground fresh morning of and delivered to the Hudson Hotel by yours truly. I wanted to guarantee the absolute freshest, highest quality showcase of our products.

LOCAL NY CRAFT BREWS FROM
 - The Bronx Brewery

Thank you. Those two words truly, truly, truly sum up my sincere appreciation to everyone that made this happen. It was no small feat to pull this off. First and foremost, to the attendees of the event, thank you for coming out and enjoying some tasty Burgers. Most of the comments I got were very positive. We tried to create a chill environment that wasn’t over crowded with a limited amount of Restaurants involved so that you could take your time and enjoy every single piece of Food offered. I hope we lived up to that. Everyone of you, please join me in thanking the Morgans Hotel Group. In a very excited manner, they took this idea and ran with it. Their production team worked very, very hard to make this happen for you. They believed in the idea from the very first conversation. To Merchants Hospitality, Riese Restaurants, The Burrell Group, Acosta, Manchester Pub, Idle Hands Bar, Point Break, Dennis Hatzinger & Andrew Zurica – seriously, you were the starts of this show. We wanted to give you a stage to show NY Burger lovers the might of your skills and if you’re asking me, you CRUSHED THIS. Every Burger and Cheese that was serves was top notch. I am truly blown away at your abilities to re-create the custom experience you do in your restaurants on the deck patio of a hotel. A serious tip of my hat to your amazing skills. To Sean and The Bronx Brewery, I love your Beer but you know this. Thanks for the awesome dancing, silly shoes and tasty brews. To Ben Trivett, the “official” NY Burger Feast photographer, once again, I hope the payment of delicious Burgers and Craft Beers worth it because I really wouldn’t want anyone else to be the Burger Photog! They aren’t going to want any spot light but I must give a huge thank you to Jamie Schweid and especially John Agostini, from Burger Maker, for really truly working really hard behind the scenes to make this event happen. These guys live and breath Burgers and it’s an honor to work with them.

To celebrate National Hamburger Month, Burger ConquestBurger Maker & The Food Film Festival proudly bring you the 3rd Annual NY Burger Week, May 1-7, 2014.

The Burger Week is a 7-day celebration of trendsetting chefs and unique burgers with a series of daily events.

THE CONQUEST
Anyone can push boundaries especially when it comes to cooking and creating recipes. It’s really not that hard to take a Burger and “dress it up” by dipping it into some weird sauce or layering it with 74 different random items. That’s just like reaching into the Lego bucket and building something with whatever you grab. Pouring that bucket onto the floor, analyzing the available bricks and coming up with a plan to build a 4 turret castle complete with moat, portcullis and a stable for the ponies, well that takes an understanding of the medium, planning and the ability to create. The latter of the 2 Lego builders is how I would describe Chef’s Keizo Shimamoto and Jeffrey Maslanka.

Jeff, the Chef and founder of Black Shack on Lexington has a simple yet tasty menu of Burgers on his menu including Burgers that have Garlic Creamed Spinach, Handmade Mozzarella, Horseradish Sauce as well as all the regular fixins. One of the most popular items though is the Black Shack Western Burger made with Crispy Onions, Pickles & BBQ Sauce. It was this Burger that helped to inspire a NY Burger Week event.

I was talking to Keizo Shimamoto, Ramen whiz kid and creator of the Food sensation, the Ramen Burger, about working together for Burger Week. In that conversation he mentioned that one of his favorite Burgers in NYC was The Black Shack. That’s when the Burger light bulb went off.

The Black Shack
320 Lexington Ave, NYC
6:30 & 8:00 pm seatings

Price: $45 for 2 people
Ticket link: http://theburgerweek.com/tickets/

Includes:

  • 1 off-menu Black Shack style Burger designed by Cheff Keizo Shimamoto
  • 1 off-menu Ramen Burger style Burger designed by Chef Jeff Maslanka
  • 1 Boozy Milk Shake
  • 1 Asian-American style side item
  • **All items split between 2 people**

The Burger Week in New York kicks off May 1 at The Black Shack (320 Lexington Ave) with a unique burger collaboration. Chef Jeffrey Maslanka brings off-menu burgers to the Burger Week, this time with Ramen Burger creator Keizo Shimamoto. Chef Jeff was the creative force behind the 2013 NY Burger Week off-menu Burger brunch at 67 Burger. For 2014, he and Shimamoto will work together to re-imagine each other’s Burger. Keizo has re-designed Jeff’s Western Burger – and it will be served along with Jeff’s take on the Ramen Burger. The dinner, limited to only 40 seats, will also feature a Black Shack off-menu Asian-themed side and a beer milk shake.

THE BURGERS:
When I tell you that these guys busted their tailbones re-creating each other’s Burgers, I’m not exaggerating in the least bit. The two of them granted me a first row seat to the process. I was kept on copy for nearly every single email and text message between Jeff and Keizo as they went back and forth with ideas, recipes, photos and requests. They even invited me and Brad from BurgerWeekly to come taste test the Burgers. It was an amazing process to watch and be a part of. It was no surprise then on the day of when it was time to devour the meal that it was amazing. That word gets thrown around a lot but if you asked any of the 40 people in attendance, including the crew from national Japanese television channel, NHK, they would agree.

NY_The_Burger_Week_NYC_2014_Black_Shack_Eastern_Meets_Western_Kezio_Maslanka_050114_4016

The Sloppy Joe-za appetizer, an Asian inspired Gyoza stuffed with, you guessed it, Sloppy Joe was absolutely incredible as were the other apps served especially the Kinpira Gobo created by Keizo’s wife Junko.

NY_The_Burger_Week_NYC_2014_Black_Shack_Eastern_Meets_Western_Kezio_Maslanka_050114_4034

Keizo’s Burger, or as he called it the night of the event, “The Red Shack,” was a true culinary adventure. Normally I would look at a Burger with so many toppings and have a tendency to scoff. Once it becomes a 5 course meal between Buns, is it truly even a Burger? The answer doesn’t matter because it was AMAZING. Every flavor complimented each other perfectly while paying tribute to both Eastern and Western flavors. All of it accented the fresh Certified Angus Beef Steakburger from Burger Maker which even at a 4 oz size, was cooked to a perfect medium rare.

  • Jeff’s – Ramen Spaghetti and Meatball Burger with Sunday Gravy, handmade Mozzarella, Basil and Caramelized Onions.

NY_The_Burger_Week_NYC_2014_Black_Shack_Eastern_Meets_Western_Kezio_Maslanka_050114_4062

Jeff knocked this one out of the stadium. Again, not much of a surprise to me seeing as he did the same thing at the 67 Burger Off-Menu Burger Brunch for the 2013 NY Burger Week. The Ramen Spaghetti and Meatball Burger was just mouth defying. Using Keizo’s signature fresh Ramen Buns, Jeff basically took the dinner that was served in my family’s house every Sunday night and made it into a Burger. All the flavors in this were very pronounced and every bite, much like Keizo’s Red Shack, was a total flavor bomb. As one of the attendees pointed out that night, Jeff definitely earned some Paisano stripes with this one!

This event wasn’t about Burgers, this was Keizo’s and Jeff’s love letter to Food.

Thank you to everyone who attended and went on this culinary adventure with me. I hope you had as much fun as I did, immensely enjoyed the incredible Food prepared by Jeff and Keizo. To Jeff, Keizo, Ed, Daphne, Junko and especially the staff of Black Shack Burger, you are awesome. That was a very difficult event to pull off, with a lot of crazy parts, and all coming out of a very small kitchen. You crushed it. It’s a true honor to work with all of you. I can’t believe the NY Burger Week made it onto Japanese Television. Thank you to the friendly and excited staff of NHK for supporting our Burgeriffic habits. Click here to see the news piece.

I once asked The Burger Beast “If you could have a Burger with anyone alive, or dead, fictional or real, who would it be and where would you take them?” His answer: “I’d take Elvis to have a Guberburger at Wheel Inn.” We’re recreating that Burger as part of the 10th anniversary screening of “Hamburger America” with George Motz for NY Burger Week. I’d invite Sef to attend, eat the Burger and do my best Shake, Rattle and Roll for him but he’s going to be busy in his home of Miami, FL. On Friday May 9th, The Burger Beast, after 5 and half years of writing his blog has put together what he believes to be the “Best Burger Competition line-up in South Florida ever.” This massive Burger event is called the Burger Beast Burger Brawl or 4B for short.

From The Burger Beast:

On Friday May 9th from 7 to 10PM at Magic City Casino, come out and celebrate National Hamburger Month with us at the inaugural Burger Beast Burger Brawl sponsored by Miami Lakes Auto Mall and presented by Burger Maker.

Your vote counts! That’s right, every attendee will cast one vote for their favorite Burger Joint. Whoever receives the most will be named Burger Brawl Champion and receive a soon to be coveted one of kind trophy that can be displayed at their restaurant.

Your ticket gets you Burger samples from all these great South Florida Burger spots:
