The slogan of Seattle mini-chain Blue Moon Burgers—“Helping People Feel Good About Making Bad Choices”—is now more apt than ever. Apparently our own dear Dan Savage often enjoys a bacon Swiss burger there, and the good people of B.M.B. have made that their August Burger of the Month, calling it the Savage Love Burger and donating 25 percent of the proceeds to Washington United for Marriage to support Referendum 74.
Reached for comment, Dan Savage said, "I am a vegetarian now."
"We start with a 1/3-pound premium beef patty and then add hot melted Swiss cheese, crispy apple-smoked bacon, a sprinkle of our own crispy onion straws, and roasted red pepper aioli, all sitting atop a bed of freshly tossed mixed greens, snuggled between two freshly toasted Larsen's Buns—and there you have the Savage Love Burger."
