All across America and especially here on the West Coast, the Slow Food movement is in full swing. Eating organic and locally grown food is the new black. Such is the case at the new burger startup Weezy’s Grass Fed Shed where their slogan is “Slow Food – Faster.” Louise Clow-Birkenseer recently opened up the small shop after being frustrated with the burger options in the small Marin County community.
Weezy’s shed is tucked away in the far corner of a small suburban shopping center that is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Despite the off-the-beaten-path location, they do a brisk business. Their menu, cleverly printed on a 1950’s Formica tabletop, is all about burgers made from grass fed beef. These aren’t your typical big ol’ fat burgers, instead they are 1/8th lb. mini burgers, what most people call sliders. I am happy that Weezy’s doesn’t refer to their mini burgers as sliders because I have an issue with burgers being called sliders. Where the hell did that term come from and what does it have to do with hamburgers? For some reason, the first thing that comes to my mind is laxative, and that isn’t a pleasant thought.
