More Lucy Love

It’s no secret that I love a good Juicy Lucy burger. I’m on a mission to find the best ones in the Twin Cities, and my most recent visit was to the Blue Door Pub in St. Paul. So far, the BDP has made it into my Top 3 (of 6 tested) places to get a Juicy Lucy here in the Twin Cities.

Turns out – the BDP just got even better. According to CityPages’ Teddy Hobbins, the Blue Door ran an online contest to have patrons vote on the next Juicy Blucy offering on their menu.

The winner? The Frenchy Blucy. It’s a French-dip inspired burger, stuffed with Swiss cheese, topped with onions and more cheese, and served with a side of au jus. The review just drools all over itself and I just might have to break my rule about visiting the same place twice in a row to go back for this one…

Gangster Burger (with a diet soda?)

The kids at MnSpeak (that’s what I’m still calling it) have already started talking about this, but I have a different angle.

When the Pioneer Press brought the Rice Street Deli’s famous Gangster Burger back to the office for this non review (they never say what it tastes like), for some reason photographer Hillery Shay decided to capture the five pound burger with a bottle of Diet Coke in the background.

Was that a joke? If your arteries can handle two half-pound hamburger patties, three six-ounce steaks, a half-pound of gyro meat, a half-pound of Italian beef and six slices of cheese, I think you can handle a full strength soda.
