Do This Today: LA Burger Week



This is probably the LAST thing you’d think I’d post about since I don’t eat meat, but since it’s a slow event day and this is a pretty big deal to some people in LA, I have to tell you about it. The Oinkster in Eagle Rock is holding their “Burger Week” this week, which means new crazy burgers each day. The photo above is the Pantera burger. Now sign me up when it’s a wee of veggie burgers! I’m probably the only person to ever say that statement.

Event: LA Burger Week at Oinkster (event link)
Location: Oinkster, 2005 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
Time: Wednesday June 4, 2014 ALL WEEK!
