Be a judge in our Burger Battle's Final Four

Posted 8:27am on Wednesday, Jun. 29, 2011

In 2009, we sought out DFW's biggest burger fanatic to help us judge the Final Four in our Burger Battle. It'll be tough to top the gent we found that year: Bryan Copeland. Dude gave his right arm for a burger. Kind of. He loves burgers so much that he actually got a hamburger tattoo on his arm. So, although you don't have to permanently ink your skin to show your patty-votion, we do want you to tell us what makes you the most burger-obsessed wacko in the Metroplex.

If we deem you to be the burger king or queen of North Texas, you'll get to join us as a guest taster in our 2011 Battle of the Burger for the Final Four. That means free burgers on us, your name and photo in the paper and, heck, we might even throw in a bottle of Maalox.

So, here's what to do: Tell us, in 100 words or less, what makes you DF-W's ultimate burger nut. You must have an open mind, an empty stomach and be available the week of July 25, when we'll be judging the Final Four.

Send your entries to hsvokos@dfw.com, with the subject line "Burger Judge." Include your name, a daytime phone number and your address. Deadline for entries is noon July 15 .

P.S. Eligible guest testers may not be affiliated with any burger joint. You will be vetted. If we find that you do have such an association, in addition to having your entry discounted, you will be reported to Mayor McCheese. He may seem like a nice guy, but trust us: You won't like him when he's angry.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
