Wizards Fan Tries To Eat BGR Burger Joint's Mega Hamburger, Behind the Scenes Video

On Tuesday, November 23, Washington Wizards fan George Koonce attempted the impossible: eat BGR The Burger Joint's infamous 15 plus pound hamburger.  The sandwich(if you can call it that) has almost ten pounds of meat, more than a head of lettuce, multiple beefsteak tomatoes, a pound of pickles, as well as onions and sauce, in between two giant buns(approximately three pounds).  

The challenge started at tip-off of the Wizards/76ers game.  If Koonce could finish the beast by the end of the third quarter, the entire crowd would receive a free BGR burger.

But poor George never stood a chance.  

After the first quarter, he had finished just one slice that made up only 1/8 of the entire burger.  It was at this point that Koonce gave up.

"No one can eat this much food," He said as he cratered.  

Tomatillo Taqueria in Dupont Circle Serves Lunch Out of A Window

Amidst Dupont Circle's fancy sit-down restaurants like The Palm and big-time chain delis like Cosi, Tomatillo Taqueira truly is one of a kind.

For just over a year now, Tomatillo Taqueira has been serving burritos and tacos to the Dupont community out of a window on the first floor of The Big Hunt, a bar located by the Circle right on Connecticut Avenue.

Tomatillo Taqueira is only open during lunch hours Monday-Friday, but the food is well worth it.  The meats and salsas are delicious, the prices are reasonable, and being served food on the street by something other than a food truck in D.C. is pretty awesome.

Dupont Circle's Panera Bread First in D.C.; Why Should You Visit?

Panera Bread has finally come to D.C..  Hallelujah.

Yes, there has been one in Friendship Heights, but last Friday Panera's first location in D.C. proper opened up in Dupont Circle. 

Panera should do incredibly well in Dupont.  While it's surrounded by bakery competition(it's sandwiched between Krispy Kreme and Cosi on Connecticut Avenue), the neighborhood should embrace yet another tasty place to get a bite to eat.

Check out the video interview above to learn more about the brand new Dupont Circle Panera Bread, and why you should go!

Also, check out what Panera is doing with their bathrooms that might cause a bit of controversy.
