Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

It's not very often that I blog while cracking up out loud, but rest assured, I have a little tear in my eye right now.

Just got a press release from Portland's announcing the debut of their Metro burger, topped with Fontina, BBQ sauce, and sauteed onions, created "in honor" of the Light Rail.

To promote the restaurant's burgers, they're giving away free "Juiciest Buns in Town" t-shirts to anyone who orders one from 5 to 10 p.m. on June 16.

Juicy buns? Really? I'm dying here, people. It's like they're trying to be cheeky and slightly pervy, like Oregano's, but the result is maybe a little more over the top than the typical t-shirt.  

Rest assured, if I see you walking down the street in one of these, I just might take your picture as a keepsake.


Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
