Kobe Bryant tribute
Bar Code Burger Bar, 1590 E. Flamingo Road, is honoring Kobe Bryant with a burger that will benefit the victims of the helicopter crash that killed the NBA star. It’s an 8-ounce patty of “Kobe” beef (technically American wagyu), in recognition of Bryant’s first jersey number as a Laker. Other touches include goat cheese (a reference to “greatest of all time”), purple onions and yellow tomatoes, five golden onion rings and something called “mamba sauce.” Twenty-four percent of the $19.95 purchase price is being donated to the cause, a nod to his later jersey number. It’s available through the end of the month.
