Looking to taste tons of great burgers this evening while helping out a worthy cause? Look no further than the Sac Burger Battle at Raley Field. Here's a little more background, via Amy Serna in Submerge Mag.
Burger Battle features all the burger samples you can eat, desserts, beer from local breweries and live music. And don’t worry about the calories; it’s all for a good cause. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.
“At the burger battle, you can do a side-by-side comparison, talk it over with your friends (who doesn’t love a good burger debate) and then cast your vote for your favorite,” explains Blackwell.
The cook-off event will feature chefs from 15 local restaurants who will fight head-to-head to grill up the best tasting burger in town. Those restaurants include Bacon and Butter, de Vere’s, Broderick, Willies, Relish Burger Bar, Formoli’s Bistro, Hawks Restaurant, The Chef’s Table, Krush Burger, Ettore’s, Ten22, The Eatery, Papa Dale’s Drivin’ Diner, Roxy and Capitol Garage. The highly coveted championship belt will be awarded by an esteemed panel of judges, but the “People’s Choice” category will be up to Burger Battle attendees to decide.
“That’s the coolest thing about this event: you have a bunch of chefs that are trying to make something simple at a really high level. Every burger is going to be good at a minimum and most are great,” says Jess Milbourn, competing burger chef from The Eatery.

Enotria’s guest chef program brings national culinary stars to Sacramento - Enotria launched its guest chef dinners in February. It has held four of them so far and each event sold out — in the case of Crenn, within three days of its announcement. They’ve attracted a who’s-who of Sacramento’s culinary scene as well as discerning gourmands looking for a taste from Michelin-starred chefs without leaving the 916 area code. By hosting these dinners, Bruich, 33, hopes to build bridges with the upper echelons of the Bay Area’s food community, to show that Sacramento isn’t just a pit stop for grabbing a burger on the way to Lake Tahoe.

BevMo formally seeks midtown location - BevMo, a big-box liquor and specialty food store most commonly found in suburban shopping centers, wants to move into a key midtown location — a building that long was home to The Beat record store on J Street. According to its application to the city, BevMo would renovate the 12,484-square-foot building at 1700 J Street for selling beer, wine, spirits and other products for entertaining.
