This just in from Dan Woog’s 06880 blog.

Sure, tomorrow is the first day of March. We will turn an important corner on our long, dark, snowless winter.

But tomorrow is special for another reason: It’s the first day of the Great Westport Burger Contest.

The restaurants are Amis, Black Duck, Border Grille, Dunville’s, Harvest, Jesup Hall, Jr’s, Little Barn, Match Burger, McDonald’s, Parker Mansion, Rothbard Ale + Larder, Rye Ridge Deli, Shake Shack, Spotted Horse, Tarry Lodge, Tavern on Main and Viva Zapata.

All month long, 18 burger-making restaurants will compete in 7 categories:

  • Best Classic Burger

  • Best Cheeseburger

  • Best Gourmet Burger

  • Best Veggie Burger

  • Best Non-Beef Burger (fish, turkey, lamb…)

  • Best Fast Food Burger

  • Best Slider

Each restaurant can enter up to 4 categories. But — in a nod to today’s no-one-really-loses culture — no restaurant can win more than twice.
