A few weeks ago, we shared some absolutely fun, delicious and juicy news.  Visit Owensboro and the City of Owensboro announced they were joining forces for Burger Week, an exciting and tasty week-long "showcase" of the city's signature burgers from restaurants here in Owensboro-Daviess County.

Well, this morning, we are sharing MORE exciting news.  Twenty-three restaurants have signed on to join the fun and offer up a $6 burger during the week of March 2nd through the 6th.  Here's a look at all the burgers and which restaurants are serving them up!  These look DELICIOUS!!

The $6 Burgers Featured in Owensboro's Burger Week

According to Dave Kirk with Visit Owensboro, "During Owensboro Burger Week, each participating restaurant will sell a burger of their choosing for $6 (including tax)."

And for some extra fun, there will be a "tasting panel" comprised of local celebrities and food critics.  That panel will judge all the burgers from each of the participating restaurants and, for added suspense, they'll have no idea where each burger came from.  It's no secret that I have made a very public appeal to be on this panel of judges. I shamelessly plugged myself on air and social media repeatedly.  And I am pleased to report that these teeth were made for chewing . . . and that's what they will do.  By the way, my fellow judges and I will select an overall winner, who will claim the Burger of the Year bragging rights and receive a traveling trophy to display until the next Burger Week.

Plus, there will be a contest for local folks who want to participate and, as Angel says, "shovel burgers in their mouths all week."  According to event organizers, "Customers who use the hashtag #owensboroburgerweek, #boroburgerweek and #locallove when taking a picture of you eating a burger at three (3) or more participating restaurants throughout the week on Facebook or Instagram will also be entered into a prize drawing."  The prizes, by the way, are legit.  The first place winner will receive a Mini Green Egg from Green River Appliance and second place will receive a BBQ grilling meats package from Hill View Farms Meats.
