The Food Snob presents the Barley House’s Burgerfest, in photos

The Barley House hosts Burgerfest for eight days every year to help raise money for Fred’s Fund and the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, but the Food Snob likes to think the good folks there host it as a way to get him through the door eight days in a row. Mission accomplished! 0
