FINALLY! It's here, it's here... IT'S HERE!! Humankind’s greatest celebration/accomplishment, New Seasons Presents Portland Burger Week is in full swing! BUT YOU GOTTA HURRY. Portland Burger Week ends THIS SUNDAY, Aug 22!

As a reminder, all week long Portlanders have been feasting on 37 delectable, original burgers... and if that wasn’t great enough, each of those burgers can be had for a mere $6! Read on to see pics and descriptions of all 37 of this year’s one-of-a-kind burger creations—but before you embark on the most delicious week of your life, keep a few things in mind:

TIP!
And please, don’t be stingy! Burger Week takes a ton of work—especially from Portland’s beloved servers, cooks, and bartenders! Let ’em know you appreciate it. With money.

BRANCH OUT!
Each Burger Week location has more than just fantastic burgers—you’ll also find excellent drinks and sides! Could you survive this week eating nothing but burgers? Uh... probably. But you’d miss out on other awesome stuff!

APPRECIATE OUR AWESOME SPONSORS!
Without these fine folks, there wouldn't BE a Burger Week. Special thanks to our presenting sponsor and your favorite neighborhood grocery store, New Seasons Market! And while you're mowing down a line of hamburgers, maybe enjoy a Jim Beam cocktail or a Rainier Seltzer. Also don’t forget to check out Tetra Cannabis (for the afterparty) and Free2move car sharing in case you need a ride to your next burger!

RELAX!
Due to its official status as the Most Beloved Event on Planet Earth™, Burger Week can get a little hectic. There will be lines—so if a place is too busy, just come back the next day, or hit another Burger Week spot!

Burger Name: Slaw, Spice & Everything Nice

Description: Portland Burger Week is here at last, and you don’t want to miss out on this super stack of tangy, spicy deliciousness: local Carman Ranch grass-fed beef patty topped with a tangy, house-made summer slaw, havarti cheese, and harissa aioli on a brioche bun.
The Insipration: Created by New Seasons Market chef Bill Hussey to bring together, in his words, "the perfect storm of flavors." A juicy Carman Ranch beef patty gets a kick of heat from harissa aioli, perfectly balanced by a sweet, tangy slaw and creamy havarti cheese served up on a brioche bun.
