It’s happening again!! We have our plans set for the 3rd Annual Burger Bash.

Burger Bash 3

Saturday, September 19th @ 4pm

Art & Meg’s Home

6170 N. Overhill Ave

Chicago, IL 60631

For those that attended last year, you have an idea of the layout of the day and how much fun it is!!

Multiple Teams (10-15) will compete for the Best Burger in 2 separate competitions, one winner chosen by the attendees and one by the official judges. Each attendee will receive a voting chip at the registration desk when they arrive that they will use to vote for one team. You will have the opportunity to buy a limited amount of extra voting chips should you wish. Winners will be announced around 8pm. In addition to some really great eats, there will be beer, water, music and games.

Everyone attending is asked to make a $25 donation that will benefit our chosen charity for 2014, Operation Support Our Troops – America. This is a wonderful organization whose roots began in Naperville, IL, they are dedicating to supporting deployed military forces, veterans and their families. Check it out at:

You can purchase tickets at:

Purchasing tickets in advance really helps us with our planning in regards to the amount of food, beverages and other essentials. If you are part of a participating team, you do not need to purchase a ticket, your contribution to the day is your hard work and yummy burgers!

For those of you wishing to enter a team in this year’s competition, please let me know in the next by July 12th. We already have 6 teams entered and will cut it off at 15. To enter a team, you just need to have a creative name, a winning recipe and be willing to flip 150-200 sliders. We will provide the grill, coal, 3 10 ft tables, plates, napkins, paper towels and food preparation gloves.

We have a gotten a few requests from people to debut some of their personal brews and we would certainly welcome that and would be happy to set up some stations tastings. Just let us know.

And as most of you know, this is a pretty big undertaking so if anyone would like to help out the day of the event we would welcome that. We need people to handle registration, sell additional voting chips, ice down the beer etc.

We are looking forward to another great event!!

All are welcome and I’m sure we have forgotten a bunch of people so please fell free to bring friends or pass this along.
