The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die

Andrew Roth at The Club for Growth waxes sentimental for the Fourth of July and points to this GQ Article:
The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die

Alan Richman traveled 23,750 miles and consumed more than 150,000 calories while taking the measure of 162 burgers across the country—with one goal: to find you the best damned assemblage of ground beef and buns this country serves up

The hamburger is a symbol of everything that makes America great. Straightforward, egalitarian, substantial, and good-natured, it is also a little bloody at times.

Roth thinks they missed out by not including a burger with an egg on top in Lawrence, Kansas. I sympathize. I think they were robbed by eminent domain of the chance to even try the really best burger. Yes, there is a poor imitation of the original Ebbets Field (original restaurant that is) in Springfield, Missouri. Yes, they still serve a burger called Da Durocher, but frankly it’s just not the same. A parking lot for a performing arts center was a pretty damn poor trade-off for a falling down house full of baseball memorabilia, Marilyn Monroe pictures and draft beer, even if a performing arts center really is a “public use”. (Sorry, those not acquainted with Springfield, MO in the 80s and early 90s, I know you have no idea what I’m ranting about.)
