TGIW? Just 2 more days left until Friday...and 6 more days left until the premiere of LOST. I know that is irrelevant to this blog but I can't wait. If you don't feel like watching the State of the Union tonight, there are some great burger and beer specials around town.
Kings Road Cafe in West Hollywood has $10 burger and beer night, where you get your choice of a regular, veggie or salmon burger + a glass of the beer on tap. Pretty good deal considering it's hard enough to find a $10 beer in West Hollywood. They also feature live music on Wednesdays. Be warned you might have to wait a bit, it is a small place and fills up quickly. Not good for large groups.
If you find yourself in Echo Park there is a $5 burger special at The Park restaurant. The Park offers a 6 oz sirloin burger or a veggie burger, no beer included sadly, but you do get a choice of a side along with your meal. For $5 that beats the Big Carl (also known as the Hot Carl haha) combo at Carl's Jr so you really can't complain.
Lastly, this isn't really a special but you can order a burger so I think it counts? Every Wednesday night at 7pm and 9pm is Bingo night at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. Hosted by Bingo boy and his drag queens, so if you don't play for the other team make sure you are secure enough in your manhood to attend. $20 for ten games, all proceeds go to charity.
