Today—Monday, September 17—is…let’s see here…International Country Music Day! Fun! Go out and enjoy some country music (and ask us about a killer country ballad we once wrote called “Bar Dice”)! Meanwhile, tomorrow—Tuesday, September 18—is…let’s check this again…ah! National Cheeseburger Day! Now we’re talking!

So how is Milwaukee celebrating tomorrow’s most hallowed national holiday? From Tuesday, September 18 through Friday, September 21, Milwaukee’s SafeHouse will slash the price of its Black Ops Burger in half (from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) “With a selection deliciously handcrafted burgers fit for the hungriest of undercovers, the SafeHouse will be the ultimate destination for this spy-tastic holiday,” reads a press release. “The famed Black Ops menu features the Double Agent, two all-beef patties, American cheese, sautéed red onions, top-secret burger sauce in between marble rye, the Mission Impossible, two premium USDA Angus patties topped with smoked bacon, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, onion rings, chipotle ranch, and jalapeño relish, the award-winning MOAB, USDA beef topped with American cheese, bacon, an over easy egg, and secret burger sauce on a brioche bun, and so much more that plays for a covert mission sure not to be missed!”

Phew. Elsewhere, AJ Bombers is already in the throes of its self-proclaimed National Cheeseburger Week. The ever-popular downtown eatery is serving up the delightfully named “Cheese on Cheese on Cheeseburger” all week long. “The specialty burger for the week will feature Bomber sauce, lettuce, and tomato—topped by American cheese, Colby cheese, and house-made fresh cheese fried curds,” says a press release. All orders come complete with a complimentary scoop of frozen custard (for a future visit).

Any other special cheeseburger deals out there? You know, other than eating at Kopp’s, because Kopp’s is the best? Please let us, and the country, know in the comments below. Also, here’s the opening to 1986’s disreputable Hamburger: The Motion Picture.
