Burger Brawl moving to Navy Yard for 2019

Burger Brawl is back on Sunday, but this time at a new location. For 2019, the all-you-eat event is taking place at the Navy Yard.

Attendees will get to try a whole bunch of burgers from local restaurants, then vote on their favorite one. A panel of judges will also pick their favorite.

General admission is $45 and includes samples from all participants, plus a free cocktail.

And don't feel bad about binging on burgers. It's for a good cause. The event funds literacy programming through technology for underserved elementary and middle schools in Philadelphia.

Note: PhillyVoice's Sinead Cummings is one of the judges participating in Burger Brawl.
