Alright. It’s a Wednesday night, and you’re hungry.
You have this hankering for a big, juicy cheeseburger with all the fixin’s…you know, an ooey-gooey two-fisted burger that you need 10 napkins for. So, what are your options?
Big Mac ? Whopper? Nope, too run-of-the-mill. Time to think outside the big box. There’s only one thing to do…It’s time for:
Yeah, that’s the ticket!
This coming Wednesday, November 16th, the Meriden Record-Journal is sponsoring the second installment in their epic battle to see who can conjure up the best, juiciest, mouth-wateringest, awesomest ground beef concoction this side of Granny’s Meat Loaf. The inaugural burger bash held last year at il Monticello was a hit, bringing over 300 burger aficionados together to decide who would be Meriden’s BurgerMeister for 2010.
This year’s contest, going down at The Meriden Four Points Sheraton Hotel, promises to be even better as six fearless purveyors of burger ingenuity will face off in hopes of taking home the coveted title of Meriden’s Best Burger. The contestants consist of four who competed last year: K. LeMay’s, Grace’s Restaurant, The Original Lunch Box (winner of last year’s Most Creative Burger for their “Military Burger”), and Jake’s Wayback Burgers (last year’s Overall and People’s Choice winner for their “Thanksgiving Dinner Burger”), plus two newcomers to the war zone, Cassidy’s Diner and Silver City Sports Bar & Grill.
The judges for the event will be: Stephanie O’Connell, Record-Journal reporter; Chef Kevin Gravel; Chef Josh Wilcox; and Rick Tompkins, owner of Sans Souci in Meriden. The event begins at 5:30 PM and runs until 7:30 PM, and there is a $10.00 cash admission fee to get to sample the goods.
Be sure to ask at the door about the Belly Buster Burger Contest! Four brave souls will be pitted against each other and the clock to see who can eat two “Skirted Egg Burgers” (don’t ask…) provided by the Silver City Sports Bar & Grill. There will also be a DJ, a raffle and a cash bar. Oh, and plenty of seats!
So now you have NO excuse for having the munchies this Wednesday night…head down to the Four Points and chow down, and bring ALL your friends!
