“In Houston, you never know what type of weather you will get in September,” said Tod Eason the co-founder of Culturemap. Saturday, September 22, 2012, was one of those perfect days where Mother Nature gave her full cooperation for Culturemap’s 1st Annual Backyard Burger Grill-Off benefitting Discovery Green. Ten local restaurants and six breweries competed for bragging rights in the back lawn area of the park, “The perfect place to have burgers and beer with three to four hundred of your best friends,” Tod said.
We interviewed vendors who impressed us with their knowledge and enthusiasm about their products ranging from burgers to sides to craft beer. The food was delicious, the crowd was friendly and the proceeds went to a good cause.
