Cheeseburger Week celebrates the invention of America’s favorite food in its birthplace, Pasadena, California. 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. Ever wonder how a sushi restaurant would interpret the cheeseburger? Are you curious to taste a Latvian-inspired crepe version of a cheeseburger? 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. For up-to-date information visit www.pasadenarestaurantweek.com.
