Everybody eat up
Everybody eat up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

If you haven’t heard ’bout the juicy burgers
About the throwdown on top of Raley Field
You live under a rock
I feel so bad for you
Maybe you’ll be there this time…

Everybody eat up

OK now it was close, the burger competition
Won by Chef’s Table, but, can they do it this year?
You don’t need to mustard
Hey, hey, hey
You don’t need no ketchup
Hey, hey, hey
To be the winning burger

And that’s why I’m gon’ get a burger
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
Tasty burger
Can’t let it get past me
Not wrapped in plastic
Talk about those grill marks
I hate these burger lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a burger
The way you tasted
Must wanna win badly
Go ahead, vote for me
Everybody eat up

What do they make fries for
When you got a burger?
What do we need buns for?
That’s hottest bite in this place!
Make them feel lucky
Hey, hey, hey
Raise so much money
Hey, hey, hey
The Burger Battle
Hey, hey, hey

OK now it was close, the burger competition

Everybody eat up
Everybody eat up

OK, sorry, I love that song… had to put it to good use! Here’s all you need to know about this year’s Sacramento Burger Battle!

Ticket sales are on for the 2013 Sacramento Burger Battle, which will be held at Raley Field on Wednesday, September 18 at 7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online at Ticketmaster or at the Raley Field box office.

Prices start at $55 and include burger samples, drinks and side items from vendors, and parking. For $75 guests can purchase a VIP ticket, which includes early admission to the event and a raffle ticket.

Competing restaurants include 2012 champion Chef’s Table and People’s Choice winner Krush Burger. They will be met on the field of battle by returning contenders de Vere’s Irish Pub and Ettore’s, as well as newcomers Roxy Restaurant and Bar and Bacon & Butter. The remaining competitors will be announced over the weeks leading up to the event.

The winner of the 2013 Sacramento Burger Battle will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes food writer Chris Macias, award-winning chefs Patrick Mulvaney and Randall Selland, and Rick Mindermann from Corti Brothers. The competitor with the best burger will receive the custom-made belt presented to last year’s victor and will go on to represent Sacramento in the Burger Division at the World Food Championship in Las Vegas later this year. The People’s Choice award will be given to the competitor with the most votes by event guests.

The inaugural event in September 2012 raised more than $27,000 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) through ticket, merchandise, and raffle ticket sales.

Conceived by nationally ranked burger blogger and Sacramento resident Rodney Blackwell, the Sacramento Burger Battle is designed to showcase the local food and dining scene as well as raise money for CCFA. “I’m excited to see what burgers will be presented, and especially what returning competitors have in store for the judges and guests,” says Blackwell.
