Yes, May is National Burger Month. But at KGB at Harrah’s Las Vegas, they treat every month like National Burger Month. How do we know this? Because each month, the restaurant, brainchild of Chef Kerry Simon, rolls out a new Burger of the Month special, each more piquant and pleasing than the last, whatever “piquant” might actually mean.

Yes, there's also vodka. Can we please try and stay focused for a minute?

Currently, the featured burger is a Carne Asada Burger, with a carne asada-marinated beef patty topped with pepper jack cheese, grilled lime-marinated onions and peppers, guacamole and crispy tortilla chips. Take note: The jalapeno cheddar bun has a sassy kick to it.

"Carne asada" in Spanish means, "No, we will not be sharing."

Each monthly burger special is paired up with a shake, straight from the ever-creative minds of Chef Simon and his team. The Carne Asada Burger comes with a Mexican Hot Chocolate shake.

Yes, Mexican Hot Chocolate. Don't question Chef Simon. He's been on TV.

The cavalcade of burgers doesn’t have to end with the end of National Burger Month, of course. In June, the Burger of the Month at KGB is the Mushroom Swiss Burger. It comes with a mango milkshake. Don’t freak out. It’s probably not as healthy as it sounds.

Leftovers aren't outside the realm of possibility.

Looking ahead to July, it’s a Breakfast Burger, with an eight-ounce burger topped with apple wood-smoked bacon and a fried egg. That swoon you just heard is that of people who are really, really into burgers topped with friend eggs. (Hint: There are a lot of them.)

Hangover helper!

Hangover helper! Not that anyone would ever have a hangover in Las Vegas, of course.

This burger forgoes the usual fries, and goes straight for the tater tots.

We've considered going on an all-tater diet.

The shake for the July special is the Creamsicle Shake, and yes, if you’re drooling, you’re a human being rather than a mannequin.

Creamsicle shake, would you accept our proposal of marriage?

So, the next time you’re at Harrah’s, or anywhere within a 60 mile radius, stop by KGB: Kerry’s Gourmet Burgers and ask about the Burger of the Month deal. Tell them we sent you. And that we asked you to bring us back some tater tots.
