On October 1st, 2011, the battle is on! The Battle of the Burgers will take place at John Howell Park in Virginia-Highlands, and will feature 25 of Atlanta’s best restaurants serving up their best burgers for the chance to be named “Best Burger of Atlanta.” These are not just any burgers. These are specially crafted, creatively reinvented, masterfully prepared and presented burgers intended to dazzle even the most critical palate. Last year’s winners included Kaleidoscope Bistro, Grindhouse, The Nook, and Atkins Park.
Battle of the Burgers presents the opportunity for restaurants, foodies, and families to come together for a day of great burgers and beer while supporting the charity Embraced. 100% of the proceeds from Battle of the Burgers will go to the Embraced non-profit organization which collects and shares used medial equipment with individuals in need both locally and globally.
Tickets to the event are $25.00 and include 20 taste tickets to trade for burgers (veggie options too), fries, milkshakes, and photo booth pictures. Kids under the age of 10 can enter for the minimum donation of $10.00; but will not receive any taste tickets. Additional taste tickets can be purchased on site.
