Bud and Burgers Happy Hour Calendar 7/27-7/31: Where To Get (Discounted!) Budweiser and Burger Specials This Week
The power couple is a character trope for the ages. Be it Barack and Michelle Obama or George and Amal Clooney, these duos are forces in their respective fields. And though they’re indisputable darlings of the Washington and Hollywood sets, it’s the culinary scene that deserves its own iteration of the timeless pairing. Luckily, it’s time for Bud-and-burgers to take its seat amongst the storied elite.
To recognize the pair — and, well, have an excuse to sample lots of Bud and burgers — Budweiser is joining forces with local restaurants for a series of Bud-and-burger happy hours where each participating restaurant will put its own spin on the special. Then, diners are invited to compete on social media for a sweet prize package (think: Made in America and Eagles tickets). Want in? Here are the eight restaurants to hit up this week.
