NY BURGER WEEK MAY 1-7, 2013
– 7 Days of delicious Burger events
From gourmet blends to off-menu specialities, to beer pairings, NY Burger Week will pay tribute to the world’s greatest sandwich, the Hamburger. Each restaurateur and Chef will be preparing a unique event that pays tribute to the Burger in their own way.
Who eats 10 Burgers in one day? You do or at least you did last year during the first ever ticketed Burger Crawl for NY Burger Week 2012. We had a blast roaming around New York’s East Village sampling Burgers and washing them down with tasty suds and I knew I had to bring it back for the 2013 NY Burger Week. When the folks at Amstel Light, the official Beer of the Burger called and said they wanted to get involved in the Burger Week, it seemed like a perfect idea. Their Beer is made with only 4 ingredients; Water, Hops, Yeast & Malted Barley. It comes from a brewing tradition that dates back to 1870 in Amsterdam. Once Burger Maker came on board to supply the participating bars with their all natural, certified humane Angus beef along with delicious Cheese from Jarlsberg Cheese, we had ourselves a Burger Crawl to run.

Last year I Burger crawled with my Burger lovin buddy, the Mighty-Mike Fox from Edit Beach. I called upon him to join me again this year along with Ashley from Amstel Light in the crawl. Mike FYI is the man behind the Beer movie starring yours truly, “The Good Beer Seal.”
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2nd annual NY Burger Crawl. From the looks of it, everyone had a fun time visiting a bunch of bars in Murray Hill & Kips Bay while eating Burgers and washing them down with Amstel Light. With Amstel Light, Burger Maker & Jarlsberg, this event would have not been possible. We all owe them a very classy golf clap for their part in this. Specifically to Aja & Mike from Jarlsberg, thank you for running the check in booth at Manhattan Brewhouse. I’m obsessed with eating your Cheese while drinking Beer. To the 10 bar owners who signed on board to this crazy idea, I tip my hat and extend a firm handshake to thank you for allowing me to bring 200+ Burger fanatics into your places of business for a fun afternoon exploring your neighborhood. Burger Cheers to my crawl buds, Ashley, Mike & Jerry for the good times and good laughs.
