Burger giveaway at a Thai restaurant


A Thai restaurant is giving away burgers Friday.

(Am I serious? Yes, Siam.)

Alex Boonphaya, chef-owner of Circles, is launching a lunch menu at his Northern Liberties location on Friday, May 31 by offering free burgers between noon and 2 p.m. 

The new menu features a variety of Thai options plus Latin-inspired dishes, including nachos, ceviche, a taco and a burrito.
