Good burger day everybody!
This week we announced that Google Philly (twitter @googlephilly ) will be sponsoring our March event! This is so exciting, what an honor! They’re going to fund 25 burgers for us! I’m not sure we’ve ever had 25 people at a meeting all at once but I bet we will this time! PLEASE be on time – only the first people in the door (that are also on the eventbrite sign-up) will get in on the deal. 7pm. Be there. I really just can’t wait.
Also Dan Reed from WXPN (twitter @WXPNDanReed) asked if he could talk about us on the air last Wednesday! I couldn’t listen to the show but I hope someone did! Did anyone hear anything? How cool! He said he might want to come to a meeting sometime – hope so!
Not too many people tried burgers this week, except Sandrine F. said “I had the “burger” at Hawthorne’s last night and it was pretty yummy (not the Hawthorne’s burger which is served differently). Angus, brioche bun, shredded cheddar on top. Meat was so tender and flavorful and cooked to perfection”
I went to PYT last Tuesday for a burger club meeting with CTO Jim (twitter @ jethomas) and “French Fry Friends” leader Megan. I had the philly cheesesteak burger. That burger is a heart-attack on a pretzel roll. I loved every bite of it. I’ll admit that it’s not the first time I’ve indulged in one of these. It won’t be my last. This burger is the messiest crazy delicious thing anyone could ever imagine. I’m a total sucker for anything on a pretzel roll (see also: the philly style eggs benedict at the Green Eggs Café).
I don’t know if this counts but has anyone tried the cheeseburger pizza from birra? Oh em gee this is good stuff! Get it in the pizza bowl, it’s DELIC! It really does taste like a burger but there’s no way you can finish it on your own. I don’t often get to-go boxes but sometimes you just need to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em.
You’ll notice Jim’s been doing some work around the site. Kewl new social media feeds and graphics. He’s working on a little update to the leaderboard here, something to the voting system there. Basically you’ll notice some changes all over the place. Hope you enjoy them! We’re looking for a SEO who’s wants to put the ‘free’ back in ‘freelance’. If you know anyone send ‘em our way.
Ohh I’m going to start doing a new thing called “on my radar”.. basically these are places burgerteers have been talking about, burgers that have been tweeting around and other places that seem to have a burger worth trying. Maybe these are candidates for a monthly meeting? Who could know… anyway
