MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Today is National Burger Day, not to be confused with National Cheeseburger Day, which is in September.
And anyone with the last name “Burger” — or variations of that name — can get a free burger from any Twin Cities Smashburger location.
The company said there are nearly 500 people in Minnesota with that last name — 492 with the last name “Burger” and 25 named “Hamburger.”
Of course, all Berger’s, Weinberger’s, Rosenberger’s, etc. get to cash in on a free burger as well.
Proof of last name is required — a valid driver’s license, passport or picture ID — and there’s a limit of one Classic Smash burger per ID.
The average person eats 43 hamburgers per year.
