MILWAUKEE -- Because the Milwaukee Brewers won 12 games in a row at the end of the season and the beginning of the playoffs, George Webb officials are prepared to give away free hamburgers on Thursday, Oct. 18!
On Wednesday, the eve of the massive burger giveaway, they were stocking up on burgers at the nearly 30 George Webb restaurants in Wisconsin -- described by some George Webb staff members as chaotic fun. Each restaurant is expected to serve an estimated 2,000 burgers on Thursday.
"The mission is to get all of our stores supplied and stocked up and ready to go," said John Heintz, George Webb manager.
Heintz counted 4,000 burgers in the freezer!
"I've been waiting for this since I've actually started working here, since I've heard about this. I see the posters in our store all the time," Heintz said.
It'll be the second time working during the madness for Heintz.
"This was my second year there and they did it then and it was exciting then like it's exciting now," said Heintz.
The free burgers* will be given away on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m at all George Webbs. During that time, hungry fans can visit any one of the 26 locations (view with interactive Google map or list) to claim their piece of baseball history.
"It's fun chaos. That's the best way to describe it," said Michelle Engelman.
Engelman will be serving, just like she was back in 1987!
"I was 17. That was 31 years ago! It kind of tells you my age," said Engelman.
George Webb will also have special pricing on other menu items including fries, soft drinks and more.
*Limit 1 per person, dine in or carry out.
