. . . . and now the news is out!

This just in from my in-box!

"We hope you like meat.




Greetings!

Lots of speculation. Lots of guesses. Some threats. We even had a Jamba employee hold our Jambas hostage unless we told (we lied. don't mess with our Jambas, man).

The secret is out. Burgers. Big, fat, juicy, freshly ground. And? Just about everything comes with Bacon. (Shout out to Chad.)

Now... for those of you that don't eat meat - don't get your knickers all twisted up... we'll have a really phenomenal portobello "burger", and of course there's the fries...

And since you know what Rob can do with some pasta and cream, just wait til you see what he's come up with for the burgers. We are committed to using as many local ingredients as possible - all the cheeses we feature on our burgers will be manufactured in the Northwest. The beers we serve will be too. Sure there will be some familiar items, but we are going to seek out and promote some esoteric stuff too... because we firmly believe that the little guy CAN do it just as well (if not better) than the big producers. And I think we've proven it.

Peace, Love & Burgers...
Janet & Rob
(we also want to introduce Sarah & Nate,
business partners and fellow burger fanatics...)"

"We hope you like meat."

Oh I do.

VN, do you think you could eat that thing?

What's the big deal? What's with all the secrecy....yet another burger place? Blech.

Oh yeah, "vegetarians don't get your panties in a bunch"? That's real classy.

Ooh, can't wait! I hope they have smaller burgers though...and shakes, any shakes? I need the full heart attack when I eat at a burger place.

Anonymous: You are right - telling vegetarians not to get their "panties in a bunch" wouldn't have been too classy. That's why we wrote "knickers in a twist" ...MUCH classier. Sorry you aren't excited about the burgers. We are.
Lisa Anne: That was a prototype during just ONE of our MANY MANY work sessions... and we are considering the feasibility of sliders, even though they are "trendy" they do fit the bill for smaller appetites. Yes - shakes are in the works too...
VN: Wipe your chin... ;)

Are you going to source your meat locally or have that as a menu option? What wins me over with McMenamins (your direct competiton on Broadway) is that they serve natural Oregon Country Beef. I'm really interested but will not flex my priorities of hormone and antibiotic free meat...

Hmmm. Big Grody Cheeseburgers. My dad would approve (at least if you use real cheddar, not American, aka "fishbait").

Personally... I might like a bit more bun there. That piece of bread looks like it'll dissolve as soon as I grab hold of it.

Genuine question: how do you cook it in order to get the center cooked without totally carbonizing the outside? That sucker is thick!
