~SUPER DUPER BURGERS~ is celebrating Eat Drink SF with a week-long guest burger chef party, from Monday August 17th through Friday August 21st, at their Kearny Street location. The guest chef burger will be available all day, and a portion of the proceeds from the special burger will go to a charity of the chef’s choice. Then, from 2pm to 3pm, the guest chef will stop by, and 100 percent of the proceeds of all special burgers purchased during that hour will be donated. So who will be the participating chefs, anyway? On Monday, Thomas McNaughton will be the guest, followed by David Bazirgan on Tuesday, James Syhabout on Wednesday, Brandon Jew on Thursday, and last but definitely not least, Michael Mina on Friday. More information here. 346 Kearny St. at Pine, 415-677-9936.

The title of best burger is an ongoing and contentious battle around these parts (and don’t even get us started on best burrito), and ~THE HALL~ is wading into the fray with their Burger Battle series. The first one kicks off on Sunday August 30th, when three burgers stars will face off against each other (for charity, of course). The Whole Beast, Wes Burger, and Burger will each be serving half-sized versions of their burgers, and you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite. The winner will advance to the next round.

Tickets are $45 per person, and include three half-sized burgers and two beers. Fifteen percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to benefit Bay Leaf Kitchen. The battle begins at 4pm. 1028 Market St. at 6th St., 415-558-8293.
