1. THEY MIGHT RUN OUT
#MaconBurgerWeek will be the beefiest week Macon has ever seen.
It’s unprecedented juiciness and drool-inducing beefiness will sure take Macon’s carnivores by storm. We actually feel a little bad for the restaurants. They will be hit like never before in their histories. So, if a place runs out of their #MaconBurgerWeek burger toward the end of a shift, take it like a man: go back the next day, this time earlier, order your burger, and thank them for working their rumps off to do this for you. Do Not Be A Jerk To Our Restaurants. We’re in this together, Maconites.
2. THERE WILL BE WAITS
People have been talking about #MaconBurgerWeek for weeks. It will become an institution built on the foundation of beefy flavor. We’re talking $5 burgers here, people. Don't be surprised if restaurants have waits. If they do, buy a beer and relax, share a post on social media using #MaconBurgerWeek and maybe you’ll win some prizes.
3. YOU WILL TIP
$5 brings out the cheap in all of us, but really, you're getting a $10-$15 burger (many restaurants get a little aggressive), so please tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working harder during #MaconBurgerWeek than at any other point in the year. A kind word will also be welcome—these people are our friends and neighbors, so Hakuna Matata.
4. YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY A DRINK AND/OR OTHER FOODS
All #MaconBurgerWeek Burgers are a la carte. Sides are extra. While extra purchases are not a requirement, we beefeaters think it says something good about you if you show a little love to a restaurant going above and beyond to bring you an awesome burger (FOR $5!). Pick up some fries and a pint of brew, or a shot of something stronger! You'll enjoy yourself more. Plus- this is a celebration of the Burger, so act accordingly!
5. SOCIAL SHARING IS CARING
