Firefighters Win Grill-Off With Alarmingly Good Burger
This year the Fire Department regained the title, having lost to the police last year. Even off duty, the members of the grill teams, firefighters, above, and police officers, below, showed their camaraderie and professionalism.                                                            RoundTable photos

For a couple of hours on Sept. 9, $10 would buy two of the best hamburgers in town: Evanston’s Finest Burger and the 5-Alarm Burger. Bacon and cheese topped the Finest Burger, while the 5-Alarm burger’s topping combined bok choy and other vegetables with vinaigrette.

Again this year, the Evanston Police and Fire Foundation held its annual grill-off in the parking lot of Valli Produce in Evanston Plaza. Valli also donated the meat, buns, chips, condiments, plates and bottles of water. Radio station WCGO covered the event live from the parking lot, where hundreds of Evanstonians came for lunch to support the foundation. The foundation gives funds for outreach programs and equipment for the two departments, said Greg Klaiber, current president of the foundation, former Evanston Fire Chief and current Director of Emergency Management at Northwestern University.

In addition to the tasty lunch of burgers, chips and bottled water, the donation to the foundation allowed diners to vote for their favorite burger.
