Good Stuff Eatery in Crystal City (2110 Crystal Drive) is holding a “burger debate” just in time for election season.
The restaurant is challenging customers to see if their politics line up with their taste buds by unveiling two new burger offerings: a James Carville burger and a Mary Matalin burger.
The famous political couple, who live in Alexandria, have lent their likenesses to what the restaurant is calling the “Great Burger Debate.” Starting today until Election Day (Nov. 6), Good Stuff will be offering the two burgers at its Crystal City and Capitol Hill locations. Each day, the eatery will tally how many of each burger have been ordered so far.
The Carville burger will match the Democrat’s “spicy personality.” It’s described as “a burger topped with a roasted creole onion slice, southern fried pickles, cheddar cheese and our Ragin’ Cajun Chipotle & Chili BBQ sauce.”
The Matalin burger represents the Republican’s “sophistication and sharp-wit. It’s described as “a burger topped with grilled, organic Portobello ‘shrooms, a goat cheese, fresh tomato and red onions, peppery arugula & a dollop of Peppadew Pepper Mayo.”
A final tally will be announced when the “polls” close on Election Day. Good Stuff held a similar contest for the 2008 presidential election.
