The Beijinger 2017 Burger Cup
The estimated attendance (some of you were fairly crafty and snuck past our security) of last May’s the Beijinger Burger Cup launch party at Oasis International Hospital was 5,000 people. This year, the biggest burger party in our fair city will have a Wild West theme, and runs May 20 and 21 from 11am to 8pm at Galaxy Soho.
Apart from the usual suspects – i.e. those juicy burger joints and booze suppliers that keep us nourished and watered throughout the year – you’ll also find plenty of entertainment to maintain your buzz come the two-day extravaganza, ranging from musical performances to themed games.
And of course, there’ll also be plenty of kid-friendly activities to keep the little ones entertained while you’re busy stuffing your face. Stay informed with everything that we have in store for you with our 2017 Burger Cup blogs.
