    I missed the Burger Bash this year, but heard the event was a great success. They had lots of family entertainment (Yard Games, Farm Animals, face painting, balloon twister and others) and of course, great food and drinks. The People’s Choice Award went to Beck’s Prime and Calypto Burger won the Judges’ Choice. I now have 2 more restaurants on my list to visit.
