Have you ever been to Slater’s 50/50? The name comes from their burger patties containing 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon. Slater’s allows you to buy one of their “pre-made” creations or they give you a checklist and you get to build your own. Here’s a burger that Heyzen created during one of his trips to Slater’s. In case you’re wondering, his burger contained the 1lb 50/50 patty, lettuce, tomato, grilled mushrooms, grilled onions and blue cheese. What do you think? Would you eat it? What would your dream burger have in it? Leave a comment below!

    Ok I haven’t finished listening but, the Phineas and Ferb “show” at DCA is no longer. They cancelled it a while back.
