The Burgie Awards

My good buddy, The Burger Beast, is hosting the first Burgie Awards at John Martin's Irish Pub this coming Monday, September 14th at 8:00pm. He was kind enough to ask me to present the award for Best Chicken Wings in South Florida. If you are a fan of burgers John Martin's will have great menu that will only be available the night of the awards. The last event The Burger Beast hosted at John Martin's had a similar menu and the burger I had was one of the best burgers I've ever had. I hope to see you for some burger AND beer fun. Here is what The Burger Best has to say about the event:

Since burgerbeast.com's inception we've glorified what Rick from South Florida Daily Blog has called "everyman food". These awards will occur to not only celebrate my blog's 1 year anniversary but to celebrate South Florida "everyman food" .

The categories will be:

Best Burger
Best Hot Dog
Best Side/Appetizer
Best Frita
Best Cuban Sandwich
Best Croqueta
and last but not least:
Best Burger - Reader's Choice

So who's going to decide the winners? Local bloggers who I've been in contact with along with the Cast of Characters will be allowed to place one vote for each category. The Reader's Choice will be via write in and that particular portion will start on Monday of next week(ed., the voting has ended already).

Will there be an event? Absolutely. The Burgies Award Show will take place at John Martin's in Coral Gables on Monday September 14th at 8pm. The Burger Beast menu will again be available that night as well as some new additions. If you attended our last event there, then you know we'll have some giveaways which will include Burger Beast T-shirts, Burger Beast Caps, Giftcards and a few other things. It should be a great night and I invite everyone to attend. Come by and join the fun. I look forward to seeing you all there.
