Another May is upon us and that can only mean one thing, National Hamburger Month! I can’t believe it, this is the 5th time that I’ve been celebrating this glorious month with you the readers of the Burger Beast Blog. As with every year you’ll need to check in periodically for additions to everything that’s going on. There will be giveaways (on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) including one to see who really is the “Biggest Shake Shack Fan”.
