Gothamist/A Hamburger Today QBQ A Resounding Success

Well, the weather was clearly against us, but the burgers and the good humor prevailed. If you missed the event, be sure to watch this flash video with the best highlights (click) and be sure to listen to the podcast with Mr. Cutlets, George Motz and Adam Kuban (click).

I can’t emphasize how much rain we got today, for those of you non-NYers. Torrential downpours literally nonstop this afternoon.

Great day for a beach party!

If its gloomy, hit the bar!

The grill area was the center stage of the event.

The fries were truly killer.

Despite the weather, attendance was very strong.

A Hamburger Today’s Adam Kuban and his friends at Gothamist kept the crowds in good spirits despite the incredibly sticky humidity. Do like Adam — always have a beer in hand.

Burgers were flying off this grill in ridiculous quantities.

Night falls on NYC.
