99(%) Problems But a Burger Ain’t One
UPDATE: Z-Burger announced they will be hooking up Occupy D.C. protesters tonight, Tuesday, November 8 at 7:15 with hamburgers, cheeseburgers and veggies burgers in McPherson Square.
With the Occupy <insert location here> protests continuing across the country, our D.C.-brand of the movement is getting support in one of the greatestÂ ways possible: burgers.
OK, so we might be in the minority in our view of the the importance of burger support, but whatever, you can’t deny it’s pretty sweet.
Since October 19, Z-Burger owner Peter Tabibian has been hooking up Occupy DC protesters with free cheeseburgers, veggie burgs and fries.Â â€œI understand what the people are arguing for and I support their concerns,â€ Tabibian said in a press release Friday. â€œWe figured the least Z-Burger could do is send bring them some lunch while they take a stance.â€
To date, Z-Burger has dished out
$500Â $5,000 worth of burgers and 400 lbs. of fries with plans to donate up to $5kÂ $10k of food to the movement.
So, if you’re feeling protest-y, head down to McPherson Square, keep your nose to the air and maybe you can sniff out a free burg or twoÂ in betweenÂ shouts of “Damn the man!”
