Wipe that burger grease off your chin, for those are the tears of vegetarians.
This Saturday there will be plenty of crying, but mostly for joy as BurgerFest Dallas 2013 takes over the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market for a day of feasting so decadent, you might just need elastic pants.
There, you'll face a challenge as daunting as it is delicious. More than 20 burger joints from all over the Metroplex will serve up their most famous beef-between-bread creations.
Savor the toppings-in-the-patty genius of Mixed Up Burgers, towering Carolina pulled pork burgers from Chop House Burgers, or double-meat, double-cheese sliders from Stackhouse Burgers.
But it's not just about burgers. Live music will keep things rockin' while the beer garden keeps thirsts quenched.
Then top it all off with a giant scoop of ice cream. Delicious, vegetarian ice cream.
Except that one filled with bacon.
