Hello folks! Sorry for the total lack of Vegas-related burger posts in the past many months, I promise many new reviews are on the horizon. I have easily a dozen important places on my to-do list, many of which I’m sure you’d like to read about so they will be posted ASAP. In the meantime, I thought I would take a moment and pose a question to everyone out there, one of the most important burger-related questions ever: is a burger a type of sandwich or is it its own entity? If you know me well, you know my answer but I will not provide it at this point so my wife can’t cry foul for me swaying anyone. So without further ado, your poll:
So as you probably know I ended the tournament early last night due to things getting a bit out of hand with many of the voters; I really didn’t want to do that, but this was supposed to be a lighthearted contest and it turned into something ugly. On top of some personal attacks, I’ve also gotten many comments from people claiming I rigged the numbers, that I have unfair advertising on my site, that I didn’t set up the contest properly, you name it. No matter how I set this up or what restaurants I selected someone is going to have a problem with it and they somehow find it necessary to express this opinion to me. Guess what, I don’t care how you would do this differently! If you have a problem with what burgers I like or how I run my contest, go create your own burger blog and contest. For the record, I have never made a dollar off of this website, I have zero banner ads; it is done strictly because of my love of burgers. This tournament was created to promote as many restaurants in town that I could; last year’s finalists had a surge in burger sales so I thought it would be fun to do again. Hopefully this year’s contest provided similar results, gave people awareness of new restaurants, or at least provided some sort of positivity somewhere.
In the meantime, I don’t want to hear about how you would have ended the contest, or what should be done now. It’s over; we’re congratulating the four finalists along with all the other participants that provide great burgers in the Las Vegas area. So go out for lunch or dinner today and eat a burger at DW Bistro, The Dillinger, Pizza Rock or Steiner’s Pub. Or even better, someone can organize a burger crawl and tackle all four in a row! In the meantime, I will be worrying about what burger I’m going to eat next.
We’re now down to four restaurants and the competition is getting fierce! Both DW Bistro and The Dillinger have been getting their voters to come out in full force, so this round is going to be very competitive. As with the past few rounds, voting is open now through midnight PST tonight, so make sure you enter your vote once every 30 minutes! Here is your bracket if you’re still following this all the way through. Good luck to our Final Four contestants! Here are your polls: Continue Reading »
