2nd Annual Cheeseburger Week January 13th -18th

Come to Pasadena for a Cheeseburger Crawl as Cheeseburger Week Celebrates America’s Favorite Food

The second annual Cheeseburger Week celebration in Pasadena is January 13-18, 2013. Everyone is invited to Pasadena to celebrate the birthplace of America’s favorite food as we honor Lionel Sternberger for the invention of the cheeseburger at Pasadena’s Rite Spot in 1924.

This year, for the first time, the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce is providing suggested routes for Cheeseburger Crawls. “Last year, one of the phenomena of Cheeseburger Week was people who organized cheeseburger crawls,” said Chamber CEO Paul Little. “They got three or more of their friends together and went from restaurant to restaurant sampling burgers. People would order a burger and split it four ways, enjoy drinks and then go on to the next place and do it again. That way, in the course of an evening, everyone had a chance to taste the culinary excellence of four or more restaurants.”

Suggested Cheeseburger Crawls can be found at the Cheeseburger Week website at www.pasadenarestaurantweek.com. The Cheeseburger Crawls are suggested routes. Cheeseburger Week celebrants are encouraged to create their own, as well. Some suggested routes include a Traditional Pasadena Cheeseburger Crawl, an Old Pasadena White Table Cloth Cheeseburger Crawl, an East Pasadena Cheeseburger Crawl, an Alternative Cheeseburger Crawl, a South Lake Avenue Cheeseburger Crawl, a Beer and Burgers Cheeseburger Crawl and a Sliders Cheeseburger Crawl.

Cheeseburger Week celebrates the invention of America’s favorite food in its birthplace, Pasadena. From January 13-18, 2013, Pasadena salutes Lionel Sternberger for his mastery, insight, innovation and daring in placing a piece of cheese atop a hamburger for the first time in recorded culinary history at the Rite Spot in Pasadena in 1924.

Restaurants, burger stands, bars and lounges will celebrate Cheeseburger Week with special offerings, creative interpretations of the cheeseburger and cheeseburger alternatives. From lunch counters to white table cloth restaurants, the cheeseburger rules in Pasadena from January 13th to 18th. Come to Pasadena for a Cheeseburger Crawl, take the Cheeseburger Challenge and celebrate Pasadena’s culinary legacy in the city where the cheeseburger was invented.
