Sixty cheeseburgers in six months is enough to break the will of even the strongest-gutted man, and so it is that Kevin Pang — the Tribune’s Cheeseburger Bureau Chief — has reached a point where he “can’t look at a cheeseburger without reaching for the wide end of an open bucket.”
When we asked about the future of the Cheeseburger Bureau, Pang told us that “the bureau chief title will be stored inside a keepsake box in a cool, dark cupboard until we decide to dust it off. Breathless burger coverage may return next year.” In the meantime, in the Trib he leaves us with points on which to meditate: should we skip the ketchup in favor of mayo? Are tallow fries truly better than duck fat fries? Is it true that “the only rule is that there are no rules”?
