It's National Burger month, and that means it's time for the Georgie Porgie's annual burger contest, an annual tradition which carries on even as we shelter at home.
Have you been perfecting your burger making skills? Do you have a red hot idea for a creatively conceived burger you'd love to see on the menu? If so, you're in luck. Entries for the annual competition are being accepted on the Georgie Porgie's web site through Friday, May 15.
Here's how it works.
- You submit your outrageously delicious burger online before the deadline.
- Georgie Porgie’s narrows down the entries down to a top 10, which will be posted online on Monday, May 18.
- Treefort fans will then be able vote for their favorite burger via text through Friday, May 22.
- The top five burgers that make it through the customer voting process will then be passed on to a panel of judges including Marcus Hanel of the Milwaukee Brewers, Brewers announcer Bill Schroeder, WISN 12 Meteorologist Lindsey Slater, Brian Kramp of Fox 6, Marcus Allen of WKLH and Lori Fredrich of OnMilwaukee (that’s me). We will taste each burger and score them to determine the ultimate winner.
The lucky winner will receive $100 gift card and a free burger a month for a year. In addition, their winning burger will be featured on the menu at both Georgie Porgie’s locations throughout the month of June.
More details and full contest rules are posted online. Good luck!
