Media People, Get a Free Beer at BurgerFi Delray Beach

Life in the trenches of the media is far from glamorous. The hours are literally endless, the pay is lousy, and we are constantly blamed by the general public and both ends of the political spectrum of spinning things one way or another.

If you are a poor schlub working in the "lamestream" media you could probably use a beer and BurgerFi in Delray Beach - yes where Romney made his campaign stop Sunday - has got just the surprise for you.


Bring your press credentials in and get a free beer through Tuesday.

Romney is staying right across the street at the Marriott while he's in town for the debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton and President Obama is making an appearance at the Delray Tennis Center on Tuesday. Never before has Delray Beach been the center of national political attention.

So, reporters, copy editors, photographers, bloggers, and editorial assistants, enjoy the moment, dig out your press passes, and toss back a free pint.

You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
