Burger Urge is a burger joint located on Haight Street between Clayton and Ashbury Street in San Francisco. The ambiance of the restaurant is very spacious, clean and comfy. This place is usually packed during lunch because of the lunch type food they have, and on weekend mornings because they serve brunch.
It was my first time at Burger Urge. I stumbled upon it while taking a stroll down Haight Street. Once you walk in you notice how spacious and open the restaurant is. The windows cover about three fourths of the restaurant. You walk up to the clerk and make an order.

A Logan math teacher accused of threatened a student has been cleared, according to New Haven spokesman Rick La Plante.
Logan Math teacher Robert Eppler was due in a Fremont courtroom this afternoon to face accusations that he made credible threats of physical harm against a student. Instead the District Attorney's office dropped the charges.
Eppler was arrested on campus Wednesday at 1:55 p.m. on charges of violating California Penal Code 422 f.
California Penal Code 422 PC defines the crime of "criminal threats" as when someone threatens to kill or physically harm someone and the person threatened is placed in a state of reasonably sustained fear for his safety or for the safety of his immediate family. The threat must be specific and unequivocal and communicated verbally, in writing or using an electronic device.
Eppler was placed on administrative leave following his arrest, according to school officials.
