NY BURGER WEEK MAY 1-7, 2014
– 7 Days of delicious Burger events
The Burger Week is a 7-day celebration of trendsetting chefs and unique burgers with a series of daily events.
I’m humbled. I can’t believe that what started as a silly blogspot site between a couple friends has now turned into a 3rd Annual celebration of Burgers in NYC. New Yorkers like their Burgers. No, that doesn’t do it justice. New Yorkers are seriously passionate about Burgers. This city is home to some of the hardest working, most innovative and passionate restauranteurs, Chefs and Burger fanatics. It was never my intention to become an events planner or promoter but what can I say? It’s a honor to help unite them for one week so that we can all enjoy it together. NY Burger Week is my love letter to the Big Apple and all the delicious Burgers inside of it.
