Burger Beast Food News – December 28th

I’m testing out this potential new recurring feature called Burger Beast Food News. It will cover any pertinent Burger News and Comfort Food News info I believe you will be interested in. I’ve also added a Streaming TV Show News category since that’s what everyone looks forward to other than food during these times.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a message below. Also, let me know how I can improve on this.
