The Oinkster’s Burger Week is a Work of Art

june2-atomichotpepper

It's burger week at the Oinkster next week, so let's take a moment to appreciate what burger week is all about-- art. Yes, the creations are all tasty and some of them are likely to be insanely, outrageously delicious, but the conceptualizations around these burgers should be applauded and appreciated as a work of pop art.

Not only does the Oinkster create long lines and incredible buzz around their restaurants, they manage to speak to what a food artisan can do when given free reign and do whatever they fuck they want with food. The spectacle that is created around Burger Week every year rivals anything done by any restaurant of any size anywhere in Los Angeles and likely beyond, creating a "happening" that brings stoners, foodies, homies, bloggers, fatties, hipsters, gluttons, and the curious together.

This year all of the burgers are inspired by pop culture, and also come with special illustrations by Benjie Escobar. Please enjoy these shots of the completed creations along with their in-depth descriptions including the drink pairings that will be available each day. The illustrations by Benjie are at the end (and above)...
