Head down to the Seaport District to taste your way through Time Out New York’s Battle of the Burger event on Wednesday, August 19!

If you’re a burger lover, you don’t want to miss out on this. From 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., hungry meat eaters can taste 20 different burgers from New York City’s best. Participants must be 21 and over to attend and tickets include food and unlimited beer from Amstel Light and Amstel Radler.

Last year, the completely sold out event ended with Filipino gastropub Jeepney’s “Choriburger” as the crowd’s favorite and ultimately won the competition. Although there was only one victor, this event features the best and most delicious burgers from New York’s finest and caters to everyone’s taste buds.

This year’s restaurant contenders include Alder, American Cut, BarKogi, Bar Sardine, Bill’s Bar and Burger, Black Tap: Craft Burgers & Beers, Blue Collar, The Burger Bistro, Burger Joint and Church Street Tavern. You can check out the full list here.

The three types of tickets, ranging from $75 to $50, include VIP admission, which allows attendees to gain early access at the event beginning at 5:30 p.m., and an extended tasting time to 8 p.m. General Admission 1 tickets allow access from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and General Admission 2 admits participants beginning at 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

This ultimate grill-off, which is presented by Amstel Light, is happening at 11 Fulton Street and will include live music and more for guests to enjoy and hang out. For more information or to purchase tickets, please click here.
