Why cows (and other ingredients) need to fear Dayton Burger Week 

We have some sad news for cows. 

As we told you last week, Dayton Burger Week is coming Aug. 6 to 12. It is expected to be beefier than any of us expected. 

>> RELATED: Can you eat your way through Dayton’s ‘Burger Bermuda Triangle’?

Burger Week organizer Tony Frank said one single man in Cincinnati downed 52 burgers during that city’s burger week last year. 

Yes, 1 DUDE TOOK DOWN 52 BURGERS in a week. 

“It was a week of gluttony,” Frank said of the seven-day festival, a partnership between Cincinnati CityBeat, a Euclid Media Group newspaper, and The Ohio Beef Council.

Eating 52 burgers is not necessarily advisable and far from the norm, but Frank said people really get into trying gourmet burgers created by local chefs.

“Restaurants go through thousands and thousands of pounds of beef during these weeks,” he said. “Burgers are very popular right now and a lot of people take pride in the creation of burgers.”

🍔CINCINNATI BURGER WEEK

Slated this year July 16 to 22, Cincinnati Burger Week launched in 2015. 

More than 50,000 burgers were sold during the last burger week in Cincinnati. 

Everything from shrimp to peanut butter has been used to create burgers for Cincinnati’s burger week.

🍔DAYTON BURGER WEEK

Frank expects about 25 Dayton-area restaurants to participate including Mudlick Tap HouseBrixx Ice Co.The Pub – Beavercreek and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers

Participating restaurants will sell gourmet burgers for $5 each.

Diners will be given Dayton Burger Week passports to get stamped at participating restaurants. 

Those with at least three stamps will be eligible for a grand prize drawing that includes gifts cards and an ultimate grill out. 

Frank said he plans to partner with a charity for the week to raise awareness. 

“Keep in mind there are people who are not getting the nutrition to get them through the day,” he said. 

Euclid Media Group will also hold new burger weeks this year in Cleveland, St. Louis and Detroit.

Frank said the week helps restaurants and Ohio farmers and often introduces customers to new eateries. 

“They end up coming back,” he said. “Restaurants get new customers.”

Crazy cash prizes, local craft beer and homemade cabbage rolls? This is not your average church festival

This is not your average church festival.

The St. Helen Spring Festival in Riverside is now is its 65th year. That’s pretty remarkable considering how some longstanding Catholic church festivals have come to an end in recent years — Immaculate Conception ended 59 years of festivals in 2014, with Ascension’s also came to an end after more than 30 years in 2015.

This year’s event, running June 8-10, has some of the familiar attractions that bring generations of people back year after year. But there are also a few things that make it pretty special.

If you’ve never been, or haven’t been in a while, here are some great reasons to break that streak this year:

>>GUIDE: The 10 festivals we just cannot wait for

 

DAYTON CRAFT BEER

Now it’s true lots of festivals have beer, and thank goodness for that. However, not all have craft beer. This year St. Helen’s Festival will have 12 craft beer taps featuring beers from Warped Wing Brewing Company, Hairless Hare Brewery and Xenia’s newest brewery, Devil Wind.

>>PHOTOS: Inside the Dayton-area’s newest local brewery

They’ll also be serving up favorites like Miller Lite, Summer Shandy, Strongbow and many more. No matter your drink preference, you should be able to find an adult beverage to keep you cool all weekend long.

LOCAL FOOD

Let’s face it: this is the real reason most of us hit festivals, and St. Helen’s is notorious for its delicious food at reasonable prices. 

The kitchen offers several delicious options, but the cabbage rolls are the stars of the show.

>>GUIDE: Classic Dayton restaurants you have to try and love

“We’re known for our cabbage rolls. We’ve always had them,” Marketing and Publicity Co-Chair Colleen Kirby said. “We make our cabbage rolls in-house every year from scratch. They are amazing.”

Holy Smokes BBQ returns to the event for its third year as well.  Meanwhile, the bake sale inside the school features pastries of virtually every variety.

GAMES OF CHANCE

One of the festival’s biggest attractions has been the various booths where you can wager to donate or win small amounts of money. But the St. Helen raffles are no joke. $100 winners will be announced every hour throughout the weekend and winners need not be present to win. What’s more, there will be a $1,000 winner announced for Friday and Saturday each, with a $10,000 winner named Sunday evening. Not a bad incentive to get out of the house for a few hours.

Gambling for money is almost as old as time. But what about gambling for cake

>>You can win up to $10,000 at this year’s Submarine House Super Duper Cheesesteak Challenge

“We have a cake booth. You buy a ticket, you put your number down and spin the wheel. If it lands on your number, you get to pick out a cake,” Kirby explained.

Another St. Helen tradition is the basket raffles where prize packages worth a minimum of $200 are up for grabs. Some of the baskets include things like a Nintendo Switch, American Girl merchandise, Vera Bradley bags, a Gatlinburg package, a Yeti cooler, an Apple Watch and more.

FAMILY FRIENDLY FUN

Despite the various booze and gambling options, organizers maintain this festival is not just for adults. Aside from almost a dozen rides, St. Helen will have a section with activities just for kids such as face painting. “I think sometimes, because of the beer and the bands, people think that it’s more of an adult affair. I think once it starts to get dark, it turns into more of an adult thing, but during the day it’s all about the kids,” said Westerfield
