Burgers and Wine with George DuBouef

Wine is popular.  Burgers are popular.  The combo of the two might not seem obvious.  Wine can seem too high brow to be paired with such common food.  While burgers can seem like common food, it shouldn't be cast aside.  The burger movement has been swinging for a while now.  While I do like fancy gourmet burgers, there's nothing quite like a well executed burger with no frills.

I used to eat a burger and fries at least once a week.  I haven't been as good about making sure I get my weekly burger lately, but it is never too late to start.  

When I was invited to the George DuBouef burgers and wine event, my dopamine receptors were pretty excited.  I had been on a burger fast for about month, so I was primed.  No pun intended.  I won't go into all the details of our wine + burgers class, but I'll show you a good food porn time.  Enjoy!

The wines are poured. 

The burgers were from a variety of places: Cool River, South Congress Cafe, and Parkside.

Hello, Burger Porn.  The fries were pretty darn tasty too!

Alright. It is 8:49 am on a Sunday and I'm feeling really hangry now.
