Baseball and hot dogs may be pillars of America's national pastime, but everyone knows football and hamburgers rule the day. Want a burger or a dog?
It's a no brainer.
Manhattan Beach Patch is banking that you have your favorite burgers, and we want to know what they are. Whether slathered in bleu cheese or special sauce, whether flanked by sesame seed buns or sourdough, whether the lettuce is leafy or chopped, whether shouldering bacon or mushrooms or both, there are a million combinations of burgers.
MB Patch will be designating a "Best Burger in Town" award to one establishment in Manhattan Beach.
The winner might come from a burger chain, an indie burger joint or a hoity-toity restaurant. The champ could be all-beef, or an ahi tuna burger. Every place, and every burger, is unique.
Once we get nominations, we'll have a poll so that you can vote for the best burger and we'll also offer a forum to debate the issue because, really, that's going to be just as fun.
The presidential candidates can talk about health care; we want to talk about how to clog our arteries. Or, if you're into low-fat, tell us about your favorite veggie burger.
The best burger. Bring it on.
And bring an order of fries with it.
Here are some of our favorite places, but if we're leaving one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:
Nominate your favorite before Friday at 9 a.m. We'll start voting on Monday. If there's a tie, the location with the most positive comments win.
