National Burger Month is upon us again.
This year’s edition is a little different since we’re in the middle of this thing that shall not be named.
I will be doing some giveaways on my social media (Facebook & Instagram) plus the re-release of the Burger King book and George Motz’s new web series round out things to look forward to in May 2020.
And how can we forget restaurants rising to the occasion with new burger creations?
Bookmark this page as it will be updated throughout National Burger Month 2020 as new worthy content becomes available.
Stay safe out there!

NEW BOOK – THE BURGER KING
The Burger King, my favorite book about burger business and history, has just been re-issued.
The book chronicles Jim McLamore’s (co-founder of Burger King) life in the restaurant industry and all of the struggles and successes during his tenure running the Burger King brand.
If you’re in Miami, it’s currently available locally at Books & Books and next week through Amazon.
Make sure to check out their website and Instagram for more photos and historical information not included in the book.
Be on the lookout for my full review of the book soon.

George Motz‘s new show the Burger Scholar Sessions premieres Tuesday, May 5th, on youtube.
