Could this be the B&B MikeC and Flaboy own?


Florida Resort Club Restaurant Debuts $100 Hamburger

Associated Press
Thursday, June 22, 2006

BOCA RATON, Fla. — A hundred bucks might buy you more than six dozen burgers from McDonald's, but the swanky Old Homestead Steakhouse will sell you one brawny beef sandwich for the same price.

Boca Raton Mayor Steven Abrams could barely speak between bites as he devoured the 20-ounce, $100 hamburger billed as the "beluga caviar of sandwiches."

"Heaven on a bun," restaurant owner Marc Sherry said.

The burger debuted Tuesday at the restaurant in the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where a membership costs $40,000 and an additional $3,600 a year.

"We've never had a hamburger on our menu here so we really wanted to go to the extreme," Sherry said, calling it "the most decadent burger in the world."

At about 5 1/2 inches across and 2 1/2 inches thick, the mound of meat is comprised of beef from three continents — American prime beef, Japanese Kobe and Argentine cattle.

The bill for one burger, with garnishing that includes organic greens, exotic mushrooms and tomatoes, comes out to $124.50 with tax and an 18 percent tip included. The restaurant will donate $10 from each sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I wish. :? :? :?

These snowbirds won't eat anything but oatmeal, prunes, and Tapioca.

Flaboy served 'em some sardines the other night. Fresh "Homeade" sardines out of the creek too! They didn't even like those. :shock:

I hear ya Bama. I haven't even gotten any of that expensive meat yet. I'm still eating "tag soup". It's kinda bland, but you get used to it.

Just because it say it is made of three different types of beef doesn't mean it's true. It's really ground possum, coon, and diller with special seasoning from off of my tractor tires. I love it those yanks eat it and rave about how good it is.

I don't get mad I get even. :lol:

Oh, I have some tomato's riping on the vine that will be canned. I expect the cost per can to be around $20 each after my investment in building that garden.
