1. THEY MIGHT RUN OUT
Make no bones about it: #DCBurgerWeek will be the biggest week in Burger History. It’s unprecedented juiciness and drool-inducing beefiness will sure take DC’s Beefheads by storm. We actually feel a little bad for the restaurants. They will be hit like never before in their histories. So, if a place runs out of their #DCBurgerWeek burger toward the end of a shift, take it like a man: go back the next day, this time earlier, order your burger, and thank them for working their rumps off to do this for you. Do Not Be A Jerk To Our Restaurants. We’re in this together, Carnivores.
2. THERE WILL BE WAITS
People have been talking about #DCBurgerWeek for weeks. It will become an institution built on the foundation of beefy flavor. We’re talking $7 burgers here, people. Don't be surprised if restaurants have waits. If they do, buy a beer and relax, share a post on social media using #DCBurgerWeek and maybe you’ll win some prizes. If you’re REALLY in a hurry: you can always call ahead! Not feeling the lines or waits ? Use Postmates to get your desired burger delivered straight to your doorstep. As if skipping the waits and lines isn’t enough, new customers can enter promo code BURGERWEEK for $10 in delivery fee credit! Visit Postmates.com or download the app and scroll through all participating locations.
3. YOU WILL TIP
$7 brings out the cheap in all of us, but really, you're getting a $10-$20 burger (many restaurants get a little aggressive), so please tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working harder during #DCBurgerWeek than at any other point in the year. A kind word will also be welcome—these people are our friends and neighbors, and you are NOT an A$$hole.
4. YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY A DRINK AND/OR OTHER FOODS
All #DCBurgerWeek Burgers are a la carte. Sides are extra. While extra purchases are not a requirement, we beefeaters think it says something good about you if you show a little love to a restaurant going above and beyond to bring you an awesome burger (FOR $7!). Pick up some fries and a pint of brew, or a shot of something stronger! You'll enjoy yourself more. Plus- this is a celebration of the Burger, so act accordingly!
