You know it the moment it happens. You’re walking down Washington Ave or strolling the Loop, and it hits you like a 1/3 pound kick to the stomach. You’re burgin’. You’ve got “the burg”. Whatever you want to call it, you know that if you don’t get a burger soon, you’ll end up regretting it.
The phrase “burgin'” comes to us from the comedy writers at SomethingAwful, whose writer Johnny “DocEvil” Titanium put the bug in my brain that burgers are the King of Sandwiches.
My friend Jeremy, who created this fine wordpress blog, called me the other day and left me a cryptic message. I’ll try to recreate it as best I can.
“Hey man, I was out at Courtesy [Diner] last night and I had a thought, what if we did a website where you review burgers?”
For those of you who don’t know Courtesy Diner, it’s the kind of greasy-spoon diner that is known for its burgers.
For those who don’t know about us, we are burger fiends. We have a burger problem. We go to meetings. We have burger sponsors. But we’re going off the wagon, buckling into our fat pants and getting out the word about the best burgers in our town.
We’re working towards implementing a system where others can input their reviews of burgers, tell us about burgin’ around their hometown and a burger scoring system based on basic factors like size, greasiness, veggie freshness, side options, cheese choices and many many more.
Look forward to a lot of burgin in the near future.
