Event – Wong Friends & Family SEP6-7 – we’ll be there

UPDATE: A hodge podge of Asian influences is the first thing we noticed upon glancing the Friends & Family menu. While nothing is particularly a reach, the menu is safe, but in a good way. The lobster egg foo young reminded us of a sisig, minus the acid. The Cornelia drink was a great Signature Cocktail and epitomizes the arrival of Fall weather. PICS HERE

Event – BurgerWeek2011: Introducing Eater’s First Ever Burger Week APR25-29

Thx to Eater for this…

2011_04_burgerweekart.jpgStarting right now and ending, oh, around 5 PM Friday, Eater will be your headquarters for all things burger for this, our first ever Eater Burger Week. We’re going to sit down with some of the city’s biggest (and smallest) burger suppliers, we’ll hand out about $1,000 in meat through an all-week contest, and there will be all kinds of voting and videos and guest bloggers and burger-related stunts. So do come back here regularly throughout the week to check it out.

Or, check out Burger Week on your lunch hour. Eater asked five of our favorite restaurants that currently do not have burgers on the menu to make a special Eater Burger Week creation, available all this week and next. LaFrieda provided the meat, and in certain cases, special blends, the chefs went to town, and if we do say so ourselves, the end results are pretty fantastic. Every day we’ll highlight a different burger, but below is a quick guide to what’s being offered:
