The Experience: Finding like-minded people to eat a meal with is one thing, but finding people equally obsessed with hamburgers to eat a burger feast with is a much more difficult task. That is why my Burger Adventure at Barley & Grain with Rev of Burger Conquest, Andrea of 24 Dollar Burger, and Michael of Gotham Burger Social Club was such a rare treat. Well, that and the ridiculously indulgent food that we spent two hours devouring.
Rev set up the night, dubbed BurgerCon 5 in the grand tradition of his past burger blogger gatherings, and chose Barley & Grain because of its hamburger meat distributor, Burger Maker. As those of us that had not yet met got to know each other, we imbibed craft beer and intoxicating whiskey (Bulleit!), and figured out which meats and cheeses with which to gorge ourselves.
Burger Ordered: B&G Wagyu Burger
