#finditdowntown for Le Burger Week!

Something has come over Winnipeg – it’s saucy, juicy, meaty, and quite frankly, a bit messy.

It’s Le Burger Week. And people are going wild for the city’s best burgers.

How it works: check out the Le Burger Week website, let your mouth water for a bit, designate your top picks (play eenie, meenie if necessary) and then go forth and eat those burgers!

And don’t forget to download the Burger Week app and vote!

I’ve conveniently compiled a list of the nine downtown burgers I’ll be trying this week (photos courtesy of Charcoal Collaborative)! And if you try one, be sure to #finditdowntown and tag me in your tweets and Instagrams!
