Riverwalk Trust Burger Battle is Next Friday (May 13) - Get Tickets Now!
Could this be the bun that captures your heart (and your vote)?
What better way to kick off barbecue season than with an outdoor showdown of the quintessential American backyard all-star: the hamburger. The Riverwalk Trust Burger Battle will pit more than a dozen of the region's finest burger makers against one another for top marks from a panel of judges and crowd fave (that's where you come in).
A $40 entry fee gets you three drink tickets, tasty burger samples, access to the French fry bar, live music, and a chance to root on your favorite local celeb in the Krystal Slider Eating Contest. Don't worry; all of the gluttony (theirs and your own) is for a good cause. Funds raised will go toward supporting the Riverwalk Trust's goal of encouraging a vibrant riverside community.
The battle is 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, May 13 on the Riverside Hotel Lawn in downtown Fort Lauderdale. For tickets or VIP tables, call 954-468-1541 ext. 201. Order online at
