The hamburger is an edible American icon, much like coleslaw made with shredded Norman Rockwell paintings. Make the motherland proud with this Groupon: for $25, you get one ticket to the Boca Burger Battle at Sanborn Square Park on Saturday, July 14, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. (a $52 value, including all ticketing fees). Admission tickets include all food and beverage tastings.
Spatulas will sizzle at Sanborn Square Park, the site of the first annual Boca Burger Battle, where contenders such as Gimme a Burger, Big Joe's Burgers and Wings, and Rebel House are set to spar for meaty dominion of South Florida's burger scene. When the bell rings on July 14, chefs will don aprons and begin flipping patties in front of an esteemed panel of judges, who will decide Best of Show by tasting bites and asking each juicy entry about its philanthropic pursuits.
Amid burger bouts, attendees can chomp into samples while sipping craft beers, summer wines, and other seasonal spirits. Live music from The Resolvers facilitates rhythmic chewing, and a retail bazaar (not included with this Groupon) helps guests escape the competition's heat. Portions of the battle's proceeds benefit Propel Your Future, a nonprofit community organization.
