These were previewed at select locations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina & Texas this summer, but as of October 1, 2015 they will be available at Mellow Mushroom locations nationwide.

The beef burger (Carnie) is made of 100% choice, all natural, certified Black Angus Beef. The beef is humanely raised and minimally processed, using no additives or ammoniated procedures. It will be available with Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, romaine lettuce, tomato, pickles and garlic aioli spread.

The veggie burger (Herb)
, which can stand up to any beef patty, consists of kale, quinoa, roasted mushrooms, and brown rice among other seasonings and vegetables. These hearty, house-made patties are made with the highest-quality ingredients. The veggie patty will be prepared with Cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, tomato, sweet onions and fresh avocado.”

From Dr. Clock’s facebook (thanks to Barred in DC for the tweet):

September will be the last month for the Clock, guys and gals, as I’ve decided to partner up at Steel Plate over in Brookland. There will assuredly be ample Clockisms, and I encourage you to mosey through and scope it all out once the move is complete.

The Clock space will go back to being the upstairs of Rendezvous Lounge.

Until later, friends – Van
