COMMANDMENTS FOR BURGER WEEK
1. THEY MIGHT RUN OUT
#MaconBurgerWeek is the beefiest week for Macon. It’s drool-inducing beefiness will sure take Macon’s carnivores by storm. We actually feel a little bad for the restaurants as they are hit hard by beefeaters across Middle Georgia. So, if a place runs out of their #MaconBurgerWeek burger toward the end of a shift, take it like a man: go back earlier the next day, order your burger, and thank them for working their rumps off. Do Not Be A Jerk To Our Restaurants. We’re in this together, Maconites.
2. THERE WILL BE WAITS
People have been talking about #MaconBurgerWeek for weeks. It’s become an institution built on the foundation of beefy flavor. We’re talking $10 burgers here, people. Don’t be surprised if restaurants have waits. If they do, buy a beer and relax, share a post on social media using #MaconBurgerWeek and maybe you’ll win some prizes.
3. YOU WILL TIP
$10 brings out the cheap in all of us, but really, you’re getting a $12-$15 burger (many restaurants get a little aggressive), so please tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working harder during #MaconBurgerWeek than at any other point in the year. A kind word will also be welcome—these people are our friends and neighbors, so Hakuna Matata.
4. YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY A DRINK AND/OR OTHER FOODS
All #MaconBurgerWeek Burgers are a la carte. Sides are extra. While extra purchases are not a requirement, we beefeaters think you should show a little love to a restaurant for going above and beyond to bring you an awesome burger (FOR $10!). Pick up some fries and a drink, and you’re sure to enjoy yourself more.
5. SOCIAL SHARING IS CARING
@MaconBurgerWeek is on Facebook and Instagram. Follow us and get up-to-date info on everything #MaconBurgerWeek. Share your burger photos using #MaconBurgerWeek and you might win awesome prizes.
