GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews is losing the bun and hopes Milo Ventimiglia does too! To celebrate the launch of the Gourmet Burger Authority's new Avocado Chicken Wedgie – a bun-free, lettuce wrapped burger – Red Robin is challenging Ventimiglia to cut off his man bun hairstyle before walking the red carpet on January 8. If the actor takes Red Robin up on its offer, the casual dining restaurant chain will make a $20,000 donation to the charity of his choice.
"Red Robin's playful spirit is infused into everything we do, especially our new Chicken Avocado Wedgie," said Jonathan Muhtar, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Red Robin. "All eyes will be on Sunday's award show and we hope our loyal guests will join in support of our red carpet-worthy burger by encouraging Milo to lose the bun. We'll be watching closely!"
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews' newest craveable menu item, Avocado Chicken Wedgie, features a fire-grilled chicken breast, bacon, avocado, tomatoes, red onions and ranch dressings wrapped in a lettuce wedge bun. Guests can visit their nearest Red Robin restaurant now through March 19 to enjoy one during its limited availability. Red Robin also empowers guests to order any of its more than two dozen high-quality burgers "Wedgie Style" and substitute the traditional burger bun for a fresh lettuce wedge wrap all year round.
