With Summer fast approaching and BBQ season upon us, we’re totally ready to celebrate the solstice the right way with a burger and a beer.
As most city dwellers know, grilling the perfect burger is pretty tough in our 300 sq ft, $1800 a month apartment boxes, which is why we were extra excited to hear about New York Burger Week, which is happening as we speak and running through May 7, 2013.
Now before you start painting the town "Medium Rare Red" with the cooked blood of some unlucky cow, take a look below at the sweet offering that NYBW has put together with Burger Conquest (so weird, that was my college nickname) to deliver you an amazing burger experience. Here’s how it works.
You can order these exclusive burgers – only on Delivery.com and only during NYBW. It’s Burger Week. Delivered. And it’s going to be delicious.
