If you're looking for information on #NationalBurgerDay 2014 hold tight, it's on its way.
Tuesday 27 August 2013 marks the UK’s first #NationalBurgerDay. Take a moment for that to sink in.
North America has (at least) two, while our calendars have remained in the culinary doldrums*. WELL NO LONGER. Mr Hyde - the daily email from the guys behind ShortList - has taken it upon itself to create the reddest of red letter days and we want IN. That’s why we’re putting on a very special Tweat Up to mark the occasion.
We’ve invited eight of the UK’s best burger chefs and restaurants to #DalstonYard (the temporary home of Street Feast) to hang out, sell a few burgers, share a few drinks and enjoy the #vibes. We won’t be releasing the full line-up until Monday but to keep you going until then we can confirm that MEATliquor, Honest, Bleecker and the soon to be relaunched Slider Bar are all signed up and (medium) raring to go. CHECK OUT THE FULL LINE-UP HERE.
Tickets cost £10 each, which includes a pint of ‘brewery fresh’ beer from the Meantime Beer Tank (that’s right, we’ve got a whole TANK), a Cheeseburger Pickleback and a #Chilliback from Breddo’s. If you’re not familiar with this style of drink, it’s a shot of spirit (Jameson or tequila in this case) chased with a shot of homemade pickling liquor. They’re sweet, spicy and DELICIOUS. And addictive. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 13 August 2013 at 1pm when we will tweet the link. If you are signed up to our occasional newsletter, we’ll email you the link a little early to get a head start. Sign up NOW!
PS. We've asked the burger chefs to serve slightly smaller burgers than usual so you can try more of them.
*Only joking, rice pudding. You know I love you.
Making shit happen and bringing the vibes.
So far no deaths or arrests.
