When it came to burgers, we believed there would never be anything better than a juicy ground beef patty, hot off the griddle, medium rare. Then Slater’s 50/50 was born, and with it came a patty comprised of 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon. Burgers would never be the same.

It turns out that Slater’s 50/50 not only makes a mean ground bacon burger, but they also like beer. And to top it off, they’re working to fight cancer, which is why they’re hosting a Backyard Brewfest this Saturday, April 6th 2013 to help raise funds to support the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.

We’ll say it first, if Slater’s 50/50 was a man, we’d want to date him.

Eat Your Heart Out L.A. is thrilled to be giving away two tickets to one lucky reader for this weekend’s Brewfest at Slater’s 50/50 in Lake Forest. The event will feature over 15 breweries and Slater’s 50/50’s most popular menu items–think creamy mac and cheese mixed with buffalo chicken and a bacon burger topped with a sizzling fried egg. Just reply to this post and let us know which celebrity you would most like to eat a burger with. We’ll start: Aziz Ansari. Have you seen how much that guy likes food??!
