“Philly Burger Brawl is back again with a brand new line-up of restaurants ready to fire up the grills for an amazing cause. This is a special year that will highlight the resilience and creativity our restaurateurs displayed as they navigated through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We welcome back some familiar faces doing this for years and years back to the beginning, as well as fresh faces new to the scene that emerged during the last two years,” said Philly Burger Brawl organizer and Rouge owner Rob Wasserman.
Wasserman added, “For our guests, be prepared to come hungry as chefs and restaurants wow us again at the grills. While nothing beats walking away with Burger Brawl bragging rights, we are all actually winners as we raise tens of thousands of dollars together to support the youth of our amazing city. I have been counting down the day when we can get back out there, and I hope to see you all at Xfinity LIVE! this October.”
