Good day burgerteers!
First thing.. do not pass go, do not collect $200 go directly to this video:
Holy burgers. Dylan from modern eye (twitter @ModernEye13) recommended this video. At first it struck me as possibly a satire? Is it a mocumentary? Right down to the twinkle in this guy’s eye I thought it was a joke. They are not joking. But seriously, if you’re going to make a burger – do it right. I’d eat it 🙂
News from the burgerteers:
Denise said she had a burger from Perch Pub and it was pretty good! I’ve really been meaning to try this place, I keep hearing things about it but I haven’t gone yet. Denise said that the meat was cooked well, it had a nice bun but it was over priced. One of the worst things (besides roaches in your soup) a restaurant can do is focus a customer’s attention away from the meal and have the thought “I’m probably paying too much for this” ruin any chance that they’ll be able to taste what’s they’re eating. That’s a shame – I hate to see that. Madhuri had sentiments of the same, saying that the burger is really good but she thought the price was “ridiculous”. Shape up or ship out Perchie!
Adam posted on the fb page that he tried a burger up in Boston and advises anyone who finds themselves up there to try the Boston Burger Company. Will do, Adam! Thanks for the tip!
Quynh posted about Sketch:
“This joint brings out the glutnous soul in me. Nine different shake flavors that are constantly changing. I went with the mint chocolate chip. Hand cut belgian fries with an indulgent side of Harissa Aioli. There’s also other sauces for you to choose from too: Chipotle, Wasabi, Green Goddess (vegan), Hot Mustard, BBQ (vegan), Tahini (vegan). I built my own burger but you also have other choices like truffle, kobe and black bean burger which I hear is popular with the veggies. Toppings are little expensive ($1 for cheese) and the patti is a bit thick but other then that, I dig this joint. Also, if you end up dining in instead of take out, you’ll notice the walls are littered with drawings that look like they’re from elementary school. That’s because they place provides buckets of crayons for your entertainment. I guess that’s why it’s called Sketch burger.”
We went to Sketch for our monthly meeting a few months ago. I thought their burgers were great! I can’t wait to go back!
Last thing is a tweet from Zen and Potatoes:
@zennpotatoes Hey the @RoyalTavern is featuring a half beef half bacon burger, thought you should know. #sinfullydelicious
What good timing Zen had! We’re going there in just a few short days! Keep an eye out for this bacon burger on Wednesday!
So as you’re all aware, we’re going to the The Royal Tavern next Wednesday for our February burger club meeting. I’m pretty excited! Hope you all are too! Please remember that we’re trying to get things started a bit earlier at 6:30 so try to arrive on time! Have I previously mentioned that Jason Wilson from the Daily News (philly.com) is coming to our meeting next week?? This is pretty neat! Burger Club getting some recognition! Let’s try to show Jason some burger club love!
Ok, see everyone next week!
