#parent | #kids | Where to find deals on National Hamburger Day, Thursday, May 28 – San Bernardino Sun

Every food you can think of has a day set aside to celebrate it, and restaurants often use those days for promotions. They’re usually inexpensive items and often tied to loyalty programs or app use.

Things get a little more interesting on National Hamburger Day, which takes place Thursday, May 28.

Off the Menu, a subscription dining club dedicated to “finding and creating secret off-the-menu food” in Los Angeles, is partnering with Uber Eats on on the Burger Showdown, in which celebrities pair up with chefs to create their dream burgers. Followers can watch videos, vote for favorites, or even order the burgers if they live within range of a participating restaurant.

The showdown began in 2018 as a fundraiser for No Kid Hungry & Feeding America with Tommy Lee among the stars.

This year’s lineup features dozens, looking sort of like a Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival poster, with Matthew McConaughey, Dwayne Wade, Melissa McCarthy and Jason Sudeikis at the top of the list.

Participating restaurants include Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers, which has a presence in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, which will have its own promotion, which on Wednesday posted the image of a “Miss USA Southern Comfort Burger” available for $13.50 May 28-31.

There’s another partnership marking National Hamburger Day, the Great American Takeout’s Burger Bash, presented by five chains: Farmer Boys, The Habit Burger Grill, Mooyah, Wayback Burgers, and White Castle. All but White Castle have a presence in Southern California, but The Habit and Farmer Boys have the most locations.

They’re putting on a sweepstakes for a $2,600 gift card, good for a “year of free hamburgers.” To enter, participants must post a photo of a burger on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #thegreatamericantakeout.
