We just wanted to give you one final reminder about tomorrow's Gothamist-Serious Eats/AHT QBQ BBQ at Water Taxi Beach. The event starts at 5 pm and it's rain or shine. If it does rain, don't worry, we'll already be stationed in the covered area of Water Taxi Beach (pictured above). Those of you who attended last year may remember that there was stormy weather last year too.
On the menu are the onion burger, the butter burger, and the pimento cheese burger as voted on by the readers of Gothamist and Serious Eats/A Hamburger Today. There will be a keg of Orlio IPA from Six Apart. Gothamist and Serious Eats/AHT is also supplying an additional keg of beer.
Free burgers? Yes, we're going to give away some free burgers in addition the two kegs of beer that will be on hand. If you haven't purchased a ticket yet, we're going to
give away a pair of tickets (that's 6 burgers) to one registered commenter on this post that we'll select at random in the next hour. If you're not registered, you can register here (it's free). If you don't win, don't worry, you can buy tickets for $13.50 until tomorrow at noon. Each ticket gets you three burgers of your choice (you can mix and match).
We also want to remind you that you must be 21+ or with your legal guardian to get into Water Taxi Beach. If you forget your ID, you won't be admitted to the event.
Update: Congratulations to Gothamist User, flew, we'll be contacting you shortly to give you details about tomorrow.
Adam has some good answers to the most common questions we've been getting. Check those out in the extended entry:
Vegetarian Options? We've had a number of people ask about this. My first reaction is You have got to be kidding me. Shoo! Shoo! But I understand that you might have vegetarian friends you want to bring with you. There are no vegetarian options at the QBQ BBQ part of Water Taxi Beach. The rest of the beach will be open with its regular food service, however, so your friends can get tofu dogs there. Note: non-burger items are not included in the QBQ admission; that's all you.
Can I Pay at the Door? No. Tickets are by advance sale only, via TicketWeb. Tickets will be on sale until noon tomorrow.
Can My Friends Show Up? Yes. Water Taxi Beach is huge, and we'll only have a little corner of it for the event. The rest of the beach is open to the public. Anyone who doesn't have a ticket is welcome to show up and mingle with you, but they'll have to procure their rations at the regular food-service area.
