The restaurant is staging a party on Sunday to celebrate its "Build Your Own Burger" contest with free mini burgers and a burger cook-off. Three contestants will be vying to win a $100 gift card to Friendly's and to have their creation featured on their local Friendly's menu.
They will be judged by a panel of judges, including DJ Rachel Logan of MIX 106.5; Kym Nelson, the deputy chief of staff for the city of Baltimore; and Patti Neumann, CEO/founder of CITYPeek.
The cooks, who were chosen during an online contest in May, will make their burgers for the judges, who will rate them on creativity, taste, and presentation.
The festivities are being held from 2-4 p.m at Friendly's at 1579 Merritt Blvd. The complimentary burgers will only be offered from 2-3 p.m.
The event also features a DJ, face painting, and balloon artists.
