Where's the Beef?

The beef's right here, suckas! After lots of talk and little action, A Hamburger Today—in a bare-bones, not-much-to-look-at-yet version—is open for business.

This is, in restaurant parlance, a soft opening, meaning that we'll be posting here on the down low for the next 30 days or so, until we get a nice backlog of material for our potential audience—and until we beef up our design and get rid of these default Movable Type templates. After that, we'll have an official launch. Look for that the first week in May.

A Hamburger Today is brought to you by the same people who run Slice, "America's Favorite Pizza Weblog," and the guiding principles of that site will manifest themselves here. So look for a passionate discussion of all things burger, mixed with humor, current events, mouthwatering photography, news, and reviews.

Don't expect the bulk of our coverage on AHT, however, to be limited largely to a specific region of the country. Unlike Slice, A Hamburger Today will have a West Coast editor (Hamburglar Hadley) and an East Coast editorial team (with Honey P., Matty, and Slice's own Adam K. heading up the east-side bill). We expect to bring on other regional editors as need be.

For those of you who don't understand our name or are thinking That sounds familiar, it comes from J. Wellington Wimpy, of Popeye/Thimble Theater fame, whose famous line in that comic/cartoon was "I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today."

We, on the other hand, won't be quite as stingy as Mr. Wimpy, and hope to bring you insightful and entertaining hamburger content on a daily basis. Pay us some attention on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in addition to Tuesday. You'll get all the hamburger you could ever want.
