I mean c'mon -- it's getting silly. Oneburger, Blissburger, Fatburger, 8 Oz Burger, Burger & Beer, Burger & Beer 2, Bourbon Burger Bar, Dune Burger Bar, Kingdom, Five Guys, Whopper Bar, all the other Burger Kings, Mickey D's, Checkers, Wendy's -- plus one Shake Shack coming right up! According to my abacus, for all of these to succeed, each one of us living in Miami-Dade will have to eat 7 burgers a day, 365 days a year. No, wait, that's not right -- I forgot to factor in The Burger Beast. When we add the burgers he consumes, it means the rest of us only have to eat 3 burgers a day. But still...
First one to correctly guess the first burger-oriented joint to go out of business will win a free hamburger at any one of the aforementioned burger joints. Just post your prediction in the comments section below -- and wait. Shouldn't take too long.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
