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.
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!
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!
The Mercury’s got you covered with Burger Week updates, reviews, and tips on Facebook, as well as Twitter and Instagram (just search the #portlandburgerweek hashtag for loads of up-to-the-second info). And at portlandburgerweek.com, you’ll find useful stuff like a handy map of all Burger Week locations, which also makes for a great tattoo.
So prep your tummy now for the greatest week of its life... PORTLAND BURGER WEEK! Coming your way August 16-22!
