Once a year there comes an event so big and so meaty that attendees must prepare themselves far in advance to consume so much beefy goodness. Which is why we’re warning you now that tickets are on sale for the Fifth Annual Burger Brawl at Xfinity Live on June 14.
Sixty contestants from restaurants all over the city will fight to be named the best burger, and for the price of a ticket, you get to try all of them, after which you’ll cast your vote for your favorite.
The doors open at 3 p.m. on the 14th. Tickets to the event are $35 for the tasting, one vote and a complimentary alcoholic beverage. If you want to ensure you get a taste of every restaurant without long lines, you can pay $100 for VIP tickets, which will get you in the door an hour early, and also gives you access to the VIP lounge during the event.
Reigning champ Blue Duck Sandwich Co. will be there to defend their title against veterans like Barbuzzo and Lucky's Last Chance and newcomers like P'Unk Burger and Lo Spiedo.
Foobooz's own Art Etchells--meat connoisseur and diner extraordinaire--will be among the judges for the event, so you can be sure that only the juiciest will come out on top.
