Nothing like a delicious, juicy burger that comes right off the grill. It's even better when that burger comes from the best places to get one in town. This Friday, you have a chance to sample delicious burgers and crown a champion of this annual burger cook-off.

That's right; you can drink some beers, sample burgers, and have a blast doing it. Sounds like a terrible time, I know.
