Burger Bites

Boise Burger Week Dec. 13-19


It's funny how some things only seem to make sense during certain times of the year. Giving Christmas presents in July, hanging out at the pool in December and hiding Easter eggs in February are pretty absurd activities. However, the unlikeliest scenario can sometimes produce the greatest reward.

Hamburgers are most often associated with warm weather. Summertime get-togethers are often depicted by somebody flipping patties on a grill. Imagine, though, how satisfying a juicy burger would be on a frigid day, as you step out of an icy wind into one of the great restaurants listed below, and wrap your hands around a mouthwatering beef-and-bun masterpiece.

Burgers are the perfect cold-weather food, which is why we are happy to announce the inaugural Boise Burger Week, presented by Boise Weekly and Idaho Beef Council, Dec. 13-19. It's a big win-win-win. First, a portion of proceeds during this week will go toward the Idaho Beef Council Beef Counts Program, which benefits the Idaho FoodBank. Second, share pictures of your burgers tagged with @bwburgerweek, @boiseweekly, @idahobeefcouncil and #BWBurgerweek on Instagram and Twitter, and you'll be entered to win some sweet prizes. Third, you're going to eat some awesome burgers at the Boise Burger Week 2017 participating restaurants listed to the right.
