Rach says, "For one October night, the Tobacco Warehouse -- a historic structure at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge -- was home to a burger bonanza. More than 20 meat masters fought for first place, and although we were in Brooklyn, I'm sure the delicious aroma reached Manhattan and beyond. My favorite food lovers and I danced, courtesy of rockin' cover band The Touch; drank, courtesy of Blue Moon; and ate mini burgers, courtesy of everyone from Bobby Flay to reigning champ (and Lure executive chef) Josh Capon."
