Burger legend George Motz is back in Los Angeles, turning out a duo of burger events around the city. The first goes down on Saturday night at Boomtown Brewery, starting at noon, while the second pop-up happens at Smorgasburg on Sunday alongside Love Hour. In the past, Motz burgers have commanded quite a line, which should come as no surprise given Motz’s unrivaled burger pedigree as an author, historian, chef, and television personality. As for the meal itself, expect lots of fried onions and smashed patties.

This burger, coming at you next weekend in Los Angeles (Mar 14+15). TWO popups are on the schedule - the first will be at @boomtownbrewery downtown on Sat 3/14 from Noon-6pm. The second is at @smorgasburgla, Sun 3/15 from 10am-4pm. At Smorg we will be teaming up with the awesome @lovehourlosangeles again and offering a deal on the purchase of both my burg and theirs. Also, that damn LOVE SAUCE is so good that you actually have permission to slather some of that goodness on your #friedonionburger, if ya want... Come to one, or both and say hi! I'll have some tour shirts available, though these last min pops wont be on the shirt (just sayin). : @dumbnhungry, @lovehourlosangeles and me
