There are many methods to taste-test a burger. Shoveling it into your mouth like this is my favorite. (RJ Sangosti / Denver Post via Getty)

This week on Denver’s dining scene: Yet another closure on the 16th Street Mall, a new (old) best burger is crowned, and how you can get Starbucks when you pick up your Target order.

🍔 Twenty of Denver’s burger-slingin’ joints went head-to-head last week to compete for the best burger in town and Cherry Cricket defended their title as People’s Champion. Snarfburger picked up the Judge’s Choice award. [Denverite]

🚫 The hard hits keep coming for Downtown Denver. Locally owned Sofia’s Roman Pizza suddenly closed its location on 16th Street Mall just five months after opening. [Westword]

🎯 There’s hardly anything as delightful as a giant cup of Starbucks coffee while you shop at Target — and now the retailer is sharing that bliss with its “Drive Up” customers. This means customers can add a Starbucks order to their Target pickup orders. Denver is one of the first cities getting the “Drive Up with Starbucks” program before it launches nationwide later this year. [9News]

🍺 Goodbye (again) to the once locally owned Breckenridge Brewery. It’s not going anywhere, but Anheuser-Busch, which purchased it in 2016, has sold the brewery to Tilray Brands, a New York City-based cannabis packaging company. I wonder if they’ll be brewing weed beer next. [CBS4]
