Sometimes you can’t hold it in and you just gotta go. Yes, I’m talking about the bathroom!

When your out and about and need a bathroom, your options can be limited. You can try to find a Starbucks, go into a store which might have a public bathroom or go into a restaurant.

What I love about burgers is that they can come in so many different varieties. The bun, meat, cheese and other topping all can vary, making for lots of unique kinds of burgers!

You wouldn’t expect to find an amazing burger at a Jewish- style deli, but you can get a really great burger at Mile End Deli in Brooklyn, NY. Continue reading You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli
