Wahlburgers Orlando is now officially open for business



The wait is over for Orlandoans craving the good vibrations of a celebrity-endorsed burger: Wahlburgers has officially opened its downtown Orlando restaurant

But if eating a Wahlburger pales in comparison to meeting a Wahlberg, on Thursday, Feb. 18, Mark and Paul will be attending a special VIP opening event.

According to a press release, the event will be a private, invitation-only function and the restaurant will not be open to the public that night. Instead, Wahlberg fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Marky Mark can attend a concert on Church Street from 7 p.m. to midnight. 

Third burger-loving brother Donnie might also be attending the event, but because of his Blue Bloods production schedule, an appearance is not guaranteed.
