Photos: Denver Burger Battle sizzles despite a downpour

The Denver Burger Battle opened to a wet -- very wet -- start last night, when rain threatened to turn all that beef into a massive river of particles floating down Speer Boulevard. But while the first thirty minutes of the annual ode to burgers -- which took place at Sculpture Park -- kept the crowds huddling under their umbrellas, Mother Nature played nice for the rest of the evening, allowing hundreds of burger fanatics to feast until the flames finally subsided around 10 p.m.
