It’s not common I would write about the same establishment in two consecutive blogs, but to refrain from writing about burgers and beer is not only daunting, but downright impossible. I mean, why would I ignore a burger throwdown, notably if Moody Tongue is there, too? While watching people compete, you can munch on your own burger and beer. Sounds good to me.
When? Feb. 22, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m (all Jake’s Burgers are $10 during that two-hour span!)
Where? Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap
Who is competing? Professional eaters, Pat “Deep Dish” Bortoletti and Tim “Gravy” Brown from Taco in a Bag will take on a team of five local social media influencers (see below) to find out who can fastest conquer the 8- lb Monster Burger.
