Burger Count Update

We just got the first updates from the managers at Comet and Honeypie. Here are the breakdowns.






Old Milwaukee: 145
New Milwaukee: 109

Total Sales: 254
Total Donated: $508.00 

Old Milwaukee: 149
New Milwaukee: 88

Total Sales: 237
Total Donated: $474.00

As you can see, the total sales competition between the two cafes is a pretty close one, separated by only $34.00, but Old Milwaukee is demolishing New Milwaukee 294 to 197. Yup, Old “Carnivorous” Milwaukee has about a 100-sale lead.

Will the damsel catch the old guy? That’s up to you, Milwaukee.

Thanks to everyone who has so far purchased either sandwich from either establishment!


More Burger Returns

Words by Ryan

The first veggie burger Comet and Honeypie have ever created for WMSE is a huge hit so far. This comment came through on Facebook this weekend from Erik R:

“WMSE Veggie Burger at Comet. Holy f*ing ball of YUM! Come on folks! Go get one. Or two. Yes, they also make a regular beef version, too.”

If you missed Erin’s detailed post about both burgers, here you go. Now, go eat as many as your belly and conscience will allow from now until September 30th.

Early Burger Returns

We’re only one full day into the burger promotion with Comet and Honeypie Cafes, but already we are seeing some great early returns.

From Twitter:

@roachcraft – “The new @WMSE burger (minus mushrooms) gets a thumbs-up; not an instant heart attack like past entries, totally unique, totally MKE.”

We can only assume that Mr. Roach will convulse and die if he eats mushrooms because we can’t imagine any other reason to exclude the mushrooms. Locally grown, delicious mushrooms, even.

From the Cakewalk Blog:

“I split the WMSE burger with Sasa since there is no chance I could eat the whole thing myself. It was great, but what was really exciting to me was this brussel sprout that was garnishing the “Old Milwaukee” style burger. I planted a solitary brussel sprout plant, which appears to be growing alright, if not a bit on the slow side. If I can’t glean enough to pickle, I will procure farmer’s market sprouts to make these spicy hot brussel sprouts!”

While Ms. Cake wasn’t ready to tackle the entire burger, as Mr. Roach said, this year’s burgers are much less heart-attack inducing than previous years’ creations. During our tasted test, all four testers were able to eat half of the Old Milwaukee and half of the New Milwaukee. As we said in the initial burger promotion post, “do what we did—cut ‘em in half, divvy ‘em up, and taste the best of both worlds.”
