Burger joint seeks new pinup girl



    Searching for the New Patty
    This could be you -- well, if you're female. And a redhead. And "fresh, hot and stacked."

    There's no such thing as a redheaded stepchild in the search for the next Patty Burger Pin Up.


    The restaurant (72 East Adams) is seeking a redhead to be the new face of the franchise.


    The contest starts on March 17 and runs through the 31st. The winner gets $1,000 and will represent Patty Burger in the media and at various promotional events. The image used for promotional purposes won't be an actual photo of the winner, but a cartoonized version.


    The Patty Burger concept is filled with nostalgia -- the days of classic burger joints, pin up girls and poodle skirts, hence the search for the classic redheaded beauty.


    Applicants are asked to submit their best Patty look-alike photograph, and 200 words on why she is the best girl for the job and the winner will be selected after a series of interviews.


    According to the restaurant's Web site, Patty is "fresh, hot and stacked" -- but we're not sure if they're just talking about the burgers. We could go on about the "fresh baked buns," but this is somewhat of a family show.


    Interested applicants are asked to drop off their materials at the Adams Street location.
