As you know already, It's Summertime™ and with that usually comes my To-Do List for Summer! ('08, '09)
But this year, I have a specific goal in mind for this summer: Eat a cheeseburger at all of the regional Burger joints on Long Island. As regional stuff goes, we don't have many things here that don't exist elsewhere, but here are the places that are pretty rare for Long Island/The Northeast:
And here are some places that only Long Island has to offer:
-Frank 'n' Burger
-American Roadside Burger
I don't know of any others, but if anyone out there would love to fill me in, that would be awesome.
Now the mission at hand is thus: Go to Burger Joint. Take pic of Burger. Eat Burger and assorted extras. Rate Burger on scale of "Beautiful Gold" "So-So Silver" and "Shameful Bronze." Report Back. So far, I'm making good progress. Granted, I've been to all these places before, but I need to visit the LI Exclusives again to have them fresh in my mind. I've completed my objective for everyplace else, though, and I think what I've had so far is pretty good.
Expect a full-blown entry at the end the summer that details the result of my quest. Until then, here's my pic from a 5 Guys burger:
