Burgie Awards Are Tonight (Updated)
It's been a Burger Beast kind of weekend, with the Fall for the Arts Street Food Fair on Saturday. But it's not over yet, as the Burger Beast will host his second-annual Burgie Awards tonight at 8 at Transit Lounge in Miami (729 SW First Ave.).
The event not only marks the second anniversary of the Burger Beast's popular blog but also gives awards to a litany of South Florida eateries for best comfort fare. Sef Gonzalez, the Burger Beast himself, will present the awards in categories like Best Burger (in both Dade and Broward), Best Taco, Best Frita, and Best Street Food. Handing out the awards will be food bloggers from all over South Florida like Lapp from Worst Pizza, Beth Swanson from the French Fry Fairy, and Dori Zinn from Fat Kids Club.
The event starts at 8 p.m. and is free. Plus Transit Lounge will offer a special Burgie Awards menu with a "Beast" burger ($13 and includes pulled pork, chicken, bacon, mozzarella sticks, and special sauce) plus pizzas, poppers, and nachos.
