Pig Out! The Oinkster's Burger Week Returns June 4-10

Before you

It rocked our tastebuds last year, and now it's back: The Oinkster's Burger Week will showcase the popular Eagle Rock eatery's take on beloved burgers with a new creation every day from June 4-10.

The Oinkster went social media style and pooled the experts: Their burger-lovin' Facebook fans. They came up with seven different classic American burgers to take on and serve up for seven juicy days.

Here's the schedule:
Monday - Red Castle Sliders (White Castle Sliders)
Tuesday - 2 x 4 Piggy Style optional (Double Double)
Wednesday - Northeast Bacon Cheeseburger (Bacon Western Cheeseburger)
Thursday - Grill Em’ All Takeover
Friday - Sourdough Josh (Sourdough Jack)
Saturday Pork Adobo Burger
Sunday The Big Max

With each burger purchase, customers will get a special pin, and, for those brave enough to chow down on all seven you'll be rewarded with a limited edition Burger Week T-Shirt. To keep up with the artistic motif, Monday is the release of a zine called "Pig Candy 2" that will feature artists like Paul Frank, Travis Millard, Sage Vaughn, Erin Garcia, Hassan Rahim, Jon Vermilyea, Hot Knives, Tom Haubrick, Ken Garduno, and more and their burger-inspired artwork.
