Monty’s Good Burger honors Elton John with glittering combo at Dodger Stadium – Orange County Register

Monty’s Good Burger has created a combo meal to send off Elton John in style as the rock icon performs what is said to be his final shows in North America at Dodger Stadium this weekend.

“Monty’s Elton” Meal has Rocket Man’s blessing, according to Monty’s co-owner Nic Adler, who said in a phone interview that John’s reps were excited about the concept.

John made rock history with his first concert at the stadium in October 1975, when he performed in a sequined Dodger uniform.

“Elton and Dodgers is about as classic a concert as we are here,” Adler said. “Elton obviously isn’t from LA, but it’s LA history, and for Monty’s, we’re just in love with LA.”

Monty’s meal aspires to the same kind of lightning. It even includes edible glitter.

The combo comes in a special box resembling McDonald’s recently released “Adult Happy Meal.” His illustrations show John riding in a rocket with Monty, the chain’s shaggy dog ​​mascot, to avoid LA traffic and get to the concerts on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday the 17th, 19th and 20th November to reach Dodger Stadium.

The box includes a cheeseburger made with a plant-based Impossible meat patty; a side of tater tots and fries with ranch dressing dyed blue; a special pink lemonade named after John’s 1971 hit “Tiny Dancer” and a glittery sugar cookie. Other fun items include paper glasses honoring John’s fondness for glasses and a placemat for guests featuring cartoons and puns. Guests are given crayons to paint on, Adler said. The cost is $24.99.

Monty’s also created a Glitter Glasses Shake with oat milk and an English toffee flavor for $9.

“At the end of the day, Monty’s is about having fun,” Adler said. “Please don’t take us seriously. Burgers, fries and shakes are happy food. We want you to laugh.”

But Monty’s has a slightly more serious side. It’s a plant-based chain that aims to give people a burger fix without eating meat.

Adler said his business partner reached Elton John’s inner circle, including the rocker’s husband David Furnish, through Monty’s co-founder Lexie Jiaras. But Adler has his own connections to the music industry. He co-owns the Roxy Theater on Sunset Boulevard with his father, producer Lou Adler.

Nic Adler was the culinary director of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival for several years, where Monty’s got a boost as a startup in 2018. It was also a provider at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival, held at the same location in Indio.

Monty’s has three locations in Los Angeles, including one near Dodger Stadium in Echo Park. It also has locations in Culver City and Riverside. According to a press release, the Monty’s Elton Meal will be available until December 11th.

Echo Park is perhaps the closest thing Adler has to the farewell concerts.

“I’m looking for tickets,” he said. “Tickets didn’t come with our collaboration!”
