What has two fluffy perfect buns and deliciously juicy meat in the middle? If you didn’t answer “a hamburger,” you might be celebrating the other naughty theme of this month, but for most of us, it’s National Burger Month.
Even though we’ve been spending this whole month stuffing our faces with meaty goodness, The Oinkster in Eagle Rock wants us to remember that every month is burger month with their yearly celebration called Burger Week from June 3rd through June 9th.
Every day of the week, the lauded burger joint will be serving different iterations of burgers based on classics like the McRib and Wendy’s Baconator. Eat a burger a day from The Oinkster? You get a t-shirt, perfect to sop up the thumb-sucking goodness of their faux-probably-better McRib.
