Guess What Your Name Has To Be To Get Free Burgers For Life

Mr-Burger-Lifetime

Every time I pick up an Archie comic, I always see that Jughead Jones winning himself a lifetime supply of hamburgers. Though I’ve yet to see an actual person get themselves that deal in real life. Turns out there’s a Burger chain in Melbourne that will do exactly that.

Though there’s a cost.

For a lifetime supply of burgers from Mr. Burger, located in Australia, you’d have to legally change your last name to burger. According to Broadsheet, the burger parlor wanted to brighten people’s day after the recent news of the Brexit.

Nothing cheers us up more than the promise of a lifetime filled with burgers.

You just have to use this application form to change your last name to Burger. Then, email the Mr. Burger crew with a copy of the confirmation from the Australian Government that you changed your name. You only have until 11:59pm on July 31 to commit to this.

As an incentive, the Burger restaurant will cover the fee of $101.40 to change your name if anyone can pull it off. There isn’t a limit on how many people can participate either.

People with the last name Burger will get seven free burgers a week for the rest of their lives. Don’t think you can quickly change your name back once you get that lifetime reward, however. Patrons will need to present an ID to claim their burger.

Gotta say, we’re pretty tempted to go for it.

5 Awesome Cities That Allow Public Drinking (And The Things You Should Know)

The majority of the United States doesn’t allow public consumption of alcohol, but there remain a few key places where open containers are legal. We got the lowdown on each and all the nuanced parts of the law you’ll need to keep in mind:

Butte, Montana

In the city of Butte, you can openly drink in the streets for 18 hours of the day. Open containers are prohibited between the hours of 2am and 8am. Same goes for a majority of the state unless specifically noted by a particular city or region. No open containers in vehicles while on a highway.

The Power & Light District of Kansas City, Missouri

The Power & Light District, or P&L, is a shopping and entertainment district in Downtown Kansas City and is one of the few places in the US where possession and consumption of alcohol is totally chill on the street. Still prohibited throughout the rest of Kansas City, so don’t keep sipping once you’re out of the district!

Clark County, Nevada, including the The Las Vegas Strip

Easily one of the most popular places to drink in public besides New Orleans (we’re getting there, don’t worry), there are some key legal points that needs to be addressed. The law allows for possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages within 1000 feet of the store from which it was purchased. You actually can not drink in parking lots, and during special events, like New Year’s celebrations, it is illegal to possess a glass or aluminum beverage container on designated streets.

It’s also illegal to have an open container while driving or in any passenger seat. The only exception is when you’ve hired someone to drive you, such as a limo or taxi driver, then it’s fine – according to the most recent laws.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Within the confines of New Orleans, the possession and consumption of any alcoholic beverage on the streets is legal as long as it is in a plastic container (can’t be in a glass). Drinking in public is still illegal for the rest of the state – however the state is known for having some pretty sweet drive-thru frozen daiquiri stands.

East Aurora, New York

Heralded as one of the best towns to raise a family in New York State, the meagerly populated town apparently has no open container law. Digging in to local government and real estate discussion boards will find a few citizens that actually wish their town did have an open container law – as the area becomes safe havens for music festivals but doesn’t have an ordinance to protect against public drinking.

Marijuana Coffee Tries to Be the High Light of Your Morning

weed-coffee

Marijuana coffee now exists to help wash down those weed brownies.

Washington will be getting Mirth Provision’s “Legal” beverages in July, a cannabis-infused cold brew coffee. The company also carries sparkling cherry, lemon ginger and pomegranate juices with cannabis extract.

The line of marijuana coffee comes in both plain and cream & sugar varieties. Each bottle has 20 milligrams of THC, which can produce similar effects that a glass of wine would, developer Adam Stites claimed.

Stites told Huffpo that the coffee will be in stores in early July, after it is inspected by the Washington State Department of Agriculture; 11.5 oz bottles will most likely retail around $9 to $11. While the idea of marijuana and caffeine joining forces sounds a little contradicting, it’s a curious option for coffee lovers.
