The AOA Burger Lab event at Central Steak is this Thursday. The people attending the slider tasting, a benefit for the ASAP Daisies, will get to create their own burgers from a long list of meats, toppings, and condiments.
And it's sold out.
But five people are getting a free ticket thanks to the combinations they posted as comments here at AOA when we first announced the event. Their combinations will be tasted a panel of judges, and the winner burger will be added to the Central Steak menu.
Here are the tasty-sounding combinations that made it to the final round...
