It's hard to imagine my food life without the internet. Most of my delicious journeys have come about because of a blog post I read, a tweet I glanced at, a FB post I perused and so on. Wouldn't you know it? It took a tweet from @LadyDucayne about a blog post she had written about an outdoor Underground Burger event that had me scrolling my mouse up my Twitter feed to see what the deal was on one January evening.
Well, the deal was that Christian Navarro of Haute Skillet hosts what he refers to as Burgers and Beats events where attendees can come by to enjoy a free specialty burger on him; however, the tips do help to offset the cost of the ingredients. After reading about the Juicy Lucy burger that Lady Ducayne got to experience, I knew I was on board for the next Burgers and Beats event and it happened just a few weeks later.
Unfortunately, on the day of the event, there was a forecast for rain, so instead of an outdoors Burgers and Beats, the event was hosted by Curry Up Cafe. So off from Duarte, I made the trek with friends all the way to Woodland Hills. I have to admit that the long drive almost threw me off, but the chance to support a fellow Filipino and to have an awesome burger finally did it for me.
