Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Every once in a while, someone comes along who pushes boundaries, who doesn't let words like "no" or "impossible" cross their lips. A Hamburger Today's Adam Kuban is one such pioneer. When they said creating the ultimate bacon sandwich couldn't be done, he didn't budge. No, he ventured into the unknown, with little regard for his own safety, and produced this: the bacon hamburger fatty melt. It's a bacon cheeseburger housed between two bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches. And I want one. I don't know what I'd do with it - eat it, I presume, but more likely build an altar an worship it like a Carpathian deity -- but I want one. (Note: Don't scroll down the page of that link unless your heart is strong enough to see -- dun, dun, dun -- the DOUBLE BACON FATTY MELT. You've been warned)

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
