May is designated as National Hamburger Month. Waukee has quite a few choices to go out for a burger, and making your own is a perfectly acceptable way to honor the American delicacy.
Any hamburger connoisseurs out there? I like to patty my burgers by hand, throw a pad of butter in the middle and crumbled blue cheese, bacon and caramelized onions on top. But, that's just me. Going out for a burger is a good option, too. So, while we are celebrating this American delicacy, where's the best burger in Waukee? Maybe it's a local business or maybe it's your own personal creation. Last year, during our Readers' Choice contest, you voted Maxie’s Restaurant & Lounge in West Des Moines as having the best burgers between Waukee and West Des Moines. Care to disagree?

The app allows vendors to process sales and automatically updates inventory, saving merchants time when they get back to their brick-and-mortar-shops. Two Waukee men launched the online marketplace.
A new mobile application offered by the West Des Moines online craft marketplace Goodsmiths should simplify sales for vendors at farmers' markets, craft shows and other events. James Eliason co-founded the company with Levi Rosol, both Waukee residents, after his wife and other users expressed frustration with Etsy. The Des Moines Register reports that Goodsmiths' app, Swipe, works using a PayAnywhere card reader on an iPhone, iPad or othr Apple device such. Once a credit card or cash sale is made, the software automatically deducts the product from the vendor's Goodsmiths online store. LINK UP WITH PATCH: Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter.
