The 2011 National Hamburger Month Agenda

Here’s the agenda for Burger Beast’s National Hamburger Month Celebration. A couple of these events sound like bad Planet of the Apes sequels but here goes:

Sunday May 1st: Battle of The Beast at Pincho Factory:

A food eating competition to decide who is the Pincho Factory “Foreman”. The competitors will eat 3 “Try Me Tuesdays” Specialty Burgers consecutively in a timed event. The winner will receive the title of champ and $100. There is a fee for entering and you can email Pincho Factory at pinchofactory@gmail.com for more details.

Friday May 13th: Riverwalk Trust’s Burger Battle II

I was a judge at last year’s event when Georgie’s Alibi came out of nowhere to win the Best Burger in Ft. Lauderdale title.  Everyone was left stunned by their victory and I can tell you it was well deserved. They’re back to defend their title, I’ll be back judging and I’ll also be giving away 2 pairs of tickets to the Burger Battle II event during May.

Sunday May 15th: Beat The Beast at Gilbert’s 17th Street Grill

Who wants to square off in an slider eating contest, mano a mano with me? You’ll have your chance as Gilbert’s 17th Street Grill will be open on Sunday (they’re normally closed) to hold the contest. You’ll also be able to order new menu items like the Bacon Cheese Fries I’ve been begging for. Email Gilbert’s at info@gilberts17thstgrill.com if you’re interested in participating in the slider-off.

Wednesday May 18th: Celebrate American Craft Beer Week and National Hamburger Month at The Filling Station

What could be better than a Burger and Beer Pairing Dinner? I don’t have answer for that so I’m expecting you here!

Friday May 20th: Street Food Fridays – All Burger Edition

Food Trucks. That’s right. 16 Trucks and they all have to have a new burger on the menu to celebrate National Hamburger Month. Grill Master Cafe is claiming to be creating a cinnamon bun burger for this event. I’m hoping for some craziness.

Sunday May 22nd: Burger Brunch Buffet at Sakaya Kitchen

Chef Richard Hales is going to put together a burger brunch buffet menu including breakfast items with a Sakaya Kitchen twist to celebrate National Hamburger Month . It’s going to be limited  and tickets are now available.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.

    Really? A cinnamon bun burger? Didn’t Pincho Factory tweet a picture a couple weeks ago of one they made…talk about unoriginal on Grill Master’s behalf

  • @Phil It’s not a new concept and as someone who’s seen most burger concepts out there, there are very few new ideas. Everyone is doing the Luther Burger (Krispy Kreme) now and it’s not considered copying. Plus I suggested the idea to Grill Master Cafe like I do plenty of places I frequent. I just suggested the Quesadilla Burger to Pincho Factory which I’m hoping they’ll do next week.

    Phil, thanks for sticking up for us, but that burger was just for fun. We didnt sell, or release it. Plus, with so many people doing so many things in between buns and with ground beef, you BOUND to find lots of repeats every where, even at the great Pincho Factory 🙂

  • Oh man.. Kobe-style Beef Frita!!! Wowza

  • DaveyBoy
