The Year of the Burger
Nation's Restaurant News
What's better than a calendar full of burgers?
"This was a banner year for vegan burgers to be introduced to menus, but there were plenty of beefy ones as well as turkey burgers. Some were topped with more meat, others with chilies, mushrooms, a wide variety of cheeses, proprietary sauces, mushrooms, corn chips, avocados and more.

Take a look at the burgers that were rolled out over the course of the year."
Get in the "Spirit" of the Season
Looking for the perfect gift? Take a page from Lakes Distillery’s handbook: Christmas tree ornaments filled with whiskey, vodka and gin!
