What a glorious month May is. In the world of "food holidays you probably didn't know existed," it's National Barbecue Month, National Chocolate Custard Month, and, most importantly, National Burger Month. Every month feels like National Burger Month at A Hamburger Today, but you can use this month as an excuse to incorporate more burger-ness into your life. Get inspired to make burgers by reading The Burger Lab (sliders, patty melts, double Shack Stacks, and more), brush up on your hamburger history, get yourself a burger gift, or check out our recommended burger joints.
We'll have some giveaways lined up for you, but for Burger Month celebrations from other burger blogs check out The Burger Beast (for Miami-based burger lovers) and Sac Burger Month (for Sacramento-based burger lovers). As for chains, White Castle has some special plans this month to mark the chain's 90th birthday, Red Robin is holding a Chief Burger Officer contest until May 15, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is offering four special burgers chosen by Facebook fans, Elevation Burger is holding burger-eating contests, and Iron Hill Brewery is offering a different burger every day this month. (As for who isn't participating, Krystal's nationalhamburgermonth.com and Smashburger's nationalsmashburgermonth.com haven't been updated this year. Aw.)
