It's Burger Week in Louisville
It seems like everyday we are celebrating something now. It’s always “National fill in the blank day” whether that is best friend day, ice cream day, puppy day, or anything else we have seen. I am not sure if these are actual traditional days, or if they are being made up lately just to have a reason to post several pictures to celebrate said days.
Either way, the city of Louisville is making sure to have a full week to celebrate something: burgers! That’s right. It is Burger Week here in town, and that is a real thing. It runs from July 23-29 and you can get $5 burgers from some of Louisville’s best restaurants.
What you want to do is grab your Burger Passport at Louisvilleburgerweek.com and get yourself eligible for a grand prize drawing featuring a grill and ultimate grill out! How does that work? You print your passport and take it with you and get it stamped at your location of choice. You are eligible for the grand prize when you have collected at least three stamps. You can eat a burger at three different places, right?
