The big day is here! Today 22 teams will compete for the title of Best Memphis Burger in the parking lot of Minglewood Hall at 1555 Madison. There are four burger competitions: Veggie (turn-in time 11 AM), Anything But (beef; turn-in time noon); Extreme (at least 2 lbs., turn in time 1 PM), and Best Memphis Burger (turn-in time 2 PM). I am one of the judges in the Best Memphis Burger category. I am really looking forward to it. A lot of my fellow judges are people I know from blogs, media, or social media, but haven’t met in person. I am honored that Seth selected me to help pick out the Best Memphis Burger.
The festival is free, but donations to Mid-South Spay and Neuter Services are encouraged. In addition to the burger cooking competitions, there will be a Kooky Canuck Kookamonga eating competition and a children’s chalk art competition. Live music, Minglewood will be selling beer, there will be vendors, and if you want to adopt a pet you can do that too. Come on out!
