It is for real. Today is National Cheeseburger Day and since it was first trademarked here in my new hometown of Denver, CO…I feel the need to celebrate! Cheeseburger Cheeseburger. I rounded up a few cheeseburger creations from the creative world to share to kick this party off.
And here is a super fun fact from Magazine USA, “Louis Ballast, born in 1910, operated the Humpty Dumpty Barrel Drive-In in Denver and was constantly looking for original ways to improve the simple meal. One day he put a slice of cheese on the burger, heated the cheese, and decided that the taste of the cheese went well with the beef. Being excited that much he applied for a patent on his invention ‘Cheeseburger’ in March 1935. Anyhow, the word Cheeseburger became a quite usual and generic expression nowadays. Those who want to pilgrimage to the cultural place of the Cheeseburger can do so by visiting 2776 N. Speer Blvd, Denver, Colorado, which is the historical site of the Humpty Dumpty which burned down completely. Today on this location you will find a quite boring parking lot here. A small memorial reminds of the Humpty Dumpty.” Here is a picture of the monument by Bryan Andrews! I think we nee do go see it for ourselves.
