Imagine walking into a giant, air-conditioned room and being surrounded on all sides by the delicious smell of meat on the grill. Imagine that people are just handing you burgers to eat, left and right, along with beer and wine and booze to wash them down. Imagine that you get to act like emperor Commodus in Gladiator and decide which burgers get your generous thumbs up or a felling thumbs down.
All this is possible at our upcoming Burger Bash on July 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Jaguar Central (7025 Old Katy Rd.), where we've invited 10 of our favorite burger joints in the city to make their finest fare—all for you to enjoy. Which restaurant makes the best burger? That's for you to decide. We'll be collecting your votes and announcing two winners at the end of the night: Peoples' Choice and Judges' Choice.
Restaurants participating in the Burger Bash come from across the city and across the spectrum, from casual to fancy, including:
- Bernie's Burger Bus
- Brasserie 19
- The Burger Palace
- Jonathan's the Rub
- Punk's Simple Southern Food
In addition, we'll be providing beer, wine, and Deep Eddy vodka (and plenty of water too) at our open bars courtesy of Bud Light and Selmo Wines, as well as a photo booth and DJ to keep the party going. (Naturally, the event is 21 and up only; book the babysitter now.) And you can't have all that meat without any dessert; we'll have that too, courtesy of Creative Cakery. The cost for this meat-stravaganza? Only $25 a ticket, or $20 a ticket if you're buying two.
You'll want to hurry up and get purchasing, though: we only have 50 tickets left, and this is an event you won't want to miss.
