A ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Pop-Up Is Now Live In NYC, Here Are All The Details

Last year, Eggslut owner and breakfast legend Alvin Cailan launched a Bob’s Burgers pop-up in Los Angeles. We’ve been waiting for a second iteration of the wildly popular concept to return, and Cailan has finally made that wish come true.

This time, Cailan will be running the temporary fictional restaurant out of New York City’s Chefs Club Counter, where he previously ran a pop-up location of his famed breakfast spot. The Bob’s Burgers pop-up starts today and will run until Christmas Eve, according to Grubstreet.

Unlike last time, Cailan will be featuring a “Burger of the Day” every day that the shop is open. As reported by Grubstreet, the burger for each day, along with what’s inside, can be found below:

Monday, December 18: Baby You Can Chive My Car Burger (pictured above) (beef patty, sour cream and mustard spread, chives, fried pickle “wheels”)

Tuesday, December 19: Don’t You Four Cheddar ’Bout Me Burger (beef patty, four different cheddars, lettuce, bacon, onion)

Wednesday, December 20: Foot Feta-ish Burger / Never Been Feta (beef patty, Feta, arugula, mayo, mustard)

Thursday, December 21: Dark Side of the Shroom Burger (beef patty, shiitake, pineapple, teriyaki sauce)

Friday, December 22: Hit Me With Your Best Shallot Burger (beef patty, caramelized shallots, chèvre spread, arugula)

Saturday, December 23: We’re Here, We’re Gruyère, Get Used to It Burger (beef patty, sweet pickles, Gruyère, caramelized onions, au jus dipped bun)

Sunday, December 24: Bet It All on Black Garlic Burger (beef patty, mozzarella, spinach, black garlic spread)

Each burger comes with a side of fries, a commemorative keychain, and a sticker, all of which costs a total of $20. Ten percent of the proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Fire Department, who’s been having a rough couple of weeks dealing with one of the area’s worst fires in history.

Those hoping to get a Burger of the Day will have to be quick, though. The Bob’s Burgers pop-up will open at 11:30 each day, but will close once everything sells out.

As if there wasn’t enough reason to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day. What if you enjoyed the scrumptious burger holiday knowing it’s for a great cause?

Fox Consumer Product teamed up with BoxLunch for a limited time Bob’s Burgers collaboration that drops September 18: National Cheeseburger Day. The cause-driven pop-culture gift store is teaming up with Feeding America and Funko for an exclusive Tina Belcher toy. The smart, strong, and sensual woman is arguably one of the best characters of the series. She’s like a charm bomb waiting to explode.

The Dark And Creepy Origin Behind TV’s ‘Bob’s Burgers’

Fox’s animated series “Bob’s Burgers” found its way into our hearts and homes in 2011, now six seasons and 100 episodes later, we continue to look forward to new adventures in season 7. However, the original concept for Bob’s Burger carries a dark and secretive past.

Bob2

The original pitch for the show was based on a “Sweeney Todd-esque burger joint” that was operated by a family of cannibals, who cooked human remains into the food they sold.

Found under the subreddit, r/Television, YouTube channel Court Of Source, an account dedicated to uploading videos that focus on investigating “the roots of your favourite movies, tv, and games,” according to their description, uploaded this strong case against Bob’s Burgers on June 7, 2016.

Apparently, Bob’s Burgers creators Loren Bouchard and Jim Dauterive found character inspiration from classic horror villains like Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Additionally, there are small details within the plot that go unnoticed, if you’re not familiar with the original cannibalistic plot.

Take a look at the original pitch for the pilot entitled, “Human Flesh:”

Fox let them keep the same cannibal concept for the pilot, kind of as an ode to the original show idea, but they changed the direction of the show as a whole, and tweaked some things with the characters, as fans can quickly tell.

We’ll never watch Bob’s Burgers the same after today.

Baking Wizard Turns Your Childhood Memories Into Delicious Donuts

This is an awesome collection of pop culture donuts by apparent donut whisperer Timmy Hanno. He’s got donuts inspired by characters from movies, cartoons, TV shows, and video games. I would eat them all. Not in one sitting of course, because that is physically impossible. But dammit if I wouldn’t try. I would, is the thing.

Bob’s ‘Child Molester’ Burger Recreated IRL, Features Candy on Burger Patty

Talk about reality television.

Bob’s Burgers, an animated series on Fox, follows your average yet quirky American family as they work together in their family-owned burger shop.

Each episode features a new “Burger of the Day” hidden away in the background of a scene. The burger board typically features some crazy concoction but also houses some pretty pun-ny creations.

Curious to see how these cartoon patties would hold up in real life, Josh Kurp over at Uproxx recreated some of Bob’s signature specials. From the “Fig-eta ‘Bout It” to the “Not If I Can Kelp It,” Kurp ranked his burger concoctions on a scale of One Dancing Jimmy Pesto Jr. to Five.

“Papaya Was a Rollin’ Stone” Burger

“Don’t Get Crème Fraîche With Me” Burger

 

Ironically, the only burger to get Jimmy Pesto Jr. dancing like a maniac was “The Child Molester” (as seen above). Topped with some chopped up Snickers and Twix bars, this burger ranked the highest of the eight with a score of five out of five Jimmy’s. Go figure.

Check out how the rest of Bob’s Burgers scored here.
