In our most ambitious collab to date, we along with Seattle Met Magazine, are proud to announce #SeattleBurgerMonth: a partnership with four top chefs from all around the Pacific Northwest bringing you gourmet burgers that will test the boundaries of your foodie imagination.
Throughout March 2015, we’ll be featuring a new burger each week. From fried chicken skin to pickled serranos, you won’t want to miss these one-of-a-kind concoctions. And if you manage to try each burger, we’re rewarding you with an exclusive “I Survived Burger Month” t-shirt!
