More than 70 restaurants throughout Southern California will welcome summer – and the reopening of all eateries – during Burger Week, July 11-17. Presented by Old Forester Bourbon, the 3rd Annual Burger Week is produced by the Orange County Restaurant Association and will be encouraging diners throughout Orange County, Los Angeles and Long Beach to support their local restaurants.
“There’s so much to celebrate this summer with the reopening of restaurants to full capacity, so the timing of our annual Burger Week event couldn’t be better,” commented Pamela Waitt, president of the OC Restaurant Association. “This is a great time for those who have spent the year away from family and friends to make plans to come together for ‘Burgers and Bourbon’ and support their local culinary community.”
The 3rd annual Burger Week event will highlight burgers from local participating restaurants throughout O.C., L.A. and Long Beach. During the week-long event from July 11-17, diners will be able to explore a variety of burgers, ranging from classic to creative, featuring various proteins from beef to plant-based, on menus priced at $10, $15, $20, and $25. Many restaurants will also feature cocktails made with Old Forester Bourbon, Ford’s Gin, Herradura Tequila, and Chambord. Restaurants, menus and featured cocktails will be updated at BurgerWeek.com.
