Well, the owners couldn't have picked a more fitting week. On the heels of last night's second presidential debate, Zach Neil and Radouane Eljaouhari—the team behind the Will Ferrell–themed Stay Classy New York and the Tim Burton–loving Beetle House—will debut 'Merica this Saturday, a boozy ode to an America taken with NASCAR, melted cheese and Chuck Norris. (Seriously, a Norris-themed week is in the works, reports DNAinfo, and word has it that diners get a discount if they show up wearing camouflage.) 

The restaurant, located at 320 E 6th Street, will serve burgers inspired by the 2016 presidential candidates: The T-Rump Mexican Burger crowns beef rump with slices of American and Mexican pepperjack cheeses and a "wall" of grilled mushrooms, onions and peppers, while the Clinton-ribbing 100 Calorie Lie is a falsely advertised "100 calorie" triple-bacon cheeseburger sporting a layer of macaroni and cheese. If the election itself isn't enough to jack up your blood pressure, the burgers surely will.
