Wilmington Burger Battle Returns for Round Two


The Second Annual Wilmington Burger Battle, presented by the Kenny Family Foundation, takes place at Twin Lakes Brewing Company.

Restaurants in the greater Wilmington area?to date that list includes 2 FatGuys, BBC Tavern and Grill, Catherine Rooney’s (Newark), Ernest & Scott Taproom, Home Grown Café, Restaurant 55, Redfire Grill Steakhouse and last year’s People’s Choice Burger winner, Union City Grille?will throw down again at this outdoor, rain-or-shine charity event. Event proceeds support the Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room.

More than 400 people attended the 2012 event to place their votes for People’s Choice Burger, and the event raised more than $4000 to fight hunger. Three Delaware sports legends gave their palates a workout, serving as ?Delebrity? judges to taste 18 burgers! They ultimately declared Kildare’s Irish Pub’s burger their favorite.

The Twin Lakes farm in Greenville has again agreed to serve as the venue and event proceeds will continue to support the Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room, which helps alleviate the immediate needs of Delaware’s hungry with more than 180,000 nutritious meals served at no cost and with no questions asked.

Admission prices include food, beer tastings, soft drinks, and music; tickets to this limited-capacity tasting event are now available at wilmingtonburgerbattle.brownpapertickets.com. For more information about this event, visit wilmingtonburgerbattle.com.
