Burgie Awards Coming to Fort Lauderdale
The fourth Annual Burger Beast Burgie Awards has moved north to Fort Lauderdale, bringing with it a meaty good time for all.
The combination burger celebration/food truck roundup/awards ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, February 2 from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. at Esplanade Park in Fort Lauderdale.
The event features 25 different food trucks and restaurants from south Florida and Tampa serving up (you guessed it) burgers, though we suspect other foods like tacos and cupcakes will get thrown into the mix. In addition, craft beers will be available for purchase.
The event is free and food and drinks are pay-as-you-go. In addition to food, the fourth annual Burger Awards will be announced at the event by founder and popular blogger Burger Beast.
Categories include best Broward burgers, food trucks, and restaurants; best Miami burgers food trucks and restaurants;
