The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: The Opening Night Of Wahlburgers Restaurant

By Gabe Delahaye / October 25, 2011 - 6:00 pm

Wahlburgers, the hamburger restaurant opened by Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, is finally OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Last night’s opening night was a star-studded gala event including such celebrities as Mark Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg. Also their mother. And apparently Anderson Cooper. And from the looks of this picture, Lance Armstrong or something? It’s hard to say. Let’s just assume that that’s Lance Armstrong because it’s way more fun to assume that than to figure out who it really is. Anyway, the restaurant is full of wonderful background stories that people will be telling their families about over the next 100 years of eating there. Like this one:

“This is in the spirit of the family,” said Donnie Wahlberg, referencing a menu that includes a Triple Decker. (“Like the house we grew up in.”)

Cook what you know. There is also a reality TV show in the works, maybe, and the child’s menu includes an item called the “smahlburger.” It’s called fine dining. Sam Sifton said it’s a poem to burgerness. I love this restaurant so much. It’s called Wahlburgers! It’s a burger restaurant opened by Mark and Donnie Wahlberg. Say hello to your STOMACH for me. (I hope McDonald’s doesn’t sue me, but I’m lovin’ THIS.)
