These days it seems like there is a National Day for almost anything that moves or in fact doesn’t! Dogs, Hats, Peanut Butter Lovers, Doughnuts you name it and there’s a National Day for it. In the UK, chips (not crisps, you understand!!) get a whole National Week and beds, they get a whole month! Not that I’m complaining about that one as I do love my bed! Anyway I just found out that it was National Burger Day a couple of days ago and shock, horror! I didn’t partake or even so much as sniff a burger, woe is me!
I have to say there are a lot of National Days that raise awareness and a great deal of funding for various causes, those organisation’s do fabulous work I believe. However, I’m not sure what aims lie behind some of the more silly days but, if the aim of National Burger Day was to make people like me want to eat a burger then I can categorically say that it succeeded! ‘Cos I want a burger and I want it now, but not just any burger……!!!
It has to be a Shack Burger, a side of Crinkle Cut Fries, all washed down with a Strawberry Milkshake and it has to be specifically eaten whilst perched in a window seat of Shake Shack on 8th and 44th in NYC. This was the place that gave me my first taste of that ooey, gooey yumminess that is a Shack Burger and it’s the perfect place for people watching in one of my favourite cities of the world. What more could one ask for from a burger joint?
Oh well we might have missed out this year but perhaps if I get to work on persuading Hubs now we might just make it for next time around ;-)’
What’s your favourite burger joint?
