40 Pasadena eateries celebrate the invention of the cheeseburger in Pasadena with delicious offerings, specials and more
Cheeseburger Week 2015 is coming in January! During Cheeseburger Week from January 11th to January 16th, 2015, Pasadena honors Lionel Sternberger’s genius in being the first to put cheese to hamburger and serve it at the Rite Spot in Pasadena in 1924.
Forty of Pasadena’s favorite restaurants, lounges and burger joints will offer their signature burgers, some special creations and deals during Pasadena Cheeseburger Week. Green Street Restaurant, El Portal, La Grande Orange, Lucky Baldwin’s and Whole Foods Market-Arroyo are among those offering specially created burgers for Cheeseburger Week.
Special events are planned for Cheeseburger Week, as well. Look for a special wine-pairing event as well as the Dog Haus Slider Eating Contest that kicks off Cheeseburger Week 2015.
Again in 2015, burger lovers can vote for your favorites in the Cheeseburger Challenge. Who makes your favorite lunch counter burger? Who serves your favorite turkey burger? Who makes your favorite veggie burger? Who serves the best beverage with a burger? You decide during Cheeseburger Week.
The invention of the cheeseburger at the Rite Spot in Pasadena has been documented by the Los Angeles Times, Time magazine, cheese-burger.net, Hamburger Heaven: the Illustrated History of the Hamburger and The San Gabriel Valley Tribune/Pasadena Star-News. Even CNN covered it in 2011.
Plan to come to Pasadena for a Cheeseburger Crawl, take the Cheeseburger Challenge and celebrate Lionel Sternberger’s culinary legacy in the city where the cheeseburger was first served. For more information visit www.pasadenarestaurantweek.com.
