Things are heating up for the Miami Heat. Tuesday night, Miami tied the series by defeating the Indiana Pacers 87-83. The Heat will host the Pacers on Saturday, May 24, at 8:30 p.m. and again on Monday, May 26, at 8:30 p.m.
We're sure there are superfans out there sporting Heat jerseys and waving car flags, but how many of us can say we're literally ingesting our favorite team?
Rok:Brgr wants you to take a "bite out of the Heat" by grabbing one of their specialty burgers or sandwiches like the King James burger or the Birdman sandwich.
Each are only $10 during the South Miami restaurant's watch parties during every game. In addition to the special sammies, Wynwood Brewing Company drafts are only $3, making your meal perfectly local and affordable.
Nick Carmona, general manager of Rok:Brgr South Miami, said that the burgers were created "because we are huge Miami Heat fans and the players and their families often visit the restaurant. We wanted to find a way to support our local team and the best way we knew to do that was to dedicate craft burgers and specialty menu items to some of our favorite players. We also wanted to incorporate Wynwood Brewing to support the first neighborhood brewery that was really established in Miami which is why we are offering $3 Wynwood Brewing drafts."
You know you want it.
Choose from the "King James," a royal offering that tops a burger with brie, duroc pork belly, red onion marmalade, and truffle aioli; the D Wade, topped with manchego cheese, chorizo, fried egg, and truffle aioli; or the Bosh Burger with baby Swiss, exotic mushrooms, caramelized onions, and truffle oil.
Not into burgers? Opt for the Birdman, a grilled chicken breast covered with chipotle gouda cheese, smoked bacon, and roasted corn and black bean salsa.
Anyone can wear a hat with a logo. It takes a real Heat fan to actually eat your team to victory.
