Friday, 23 June 2017 21:56
Western Hemisphere, June 2017—(Every once in a while we like to run articles that are primarily lists. This is one of those babies.)

With summer officially kicking off this week (June 20), we’re here to report on Postmates’ Summer Solstice Study—which recently found that hamburgers narrowly beat hot dogs as America's favorite summer food. To celebrate, they are awarding residents of 100+ cities with free hamburgers and hot dogs all week long. For more check out (springboard.postmates.com/summersun).
