With staff dressed in titillating little nurses outfits serving outrageously fatty burgers, shakes made with pure cream, filterless cigarettes and "Flatliner" fries cooked in lard, the Heart Attack Grill is appropriately located in Las Vegas, which may be the antimatter to Whistler. Unapologetically dubbed the "mecca for unhealthy lifestyles" and featured on the TV show Extreme Pig-Outs, it offers free meals for anyone weighing more than 350 pounds.
Earlier this year the place earned all sorts of publicity. On April 13 it was officially awarded the Guinness World Record for the world's most calorific burger. The three-pound, four-patty Quadruple Bypass Burger packs in 9,982 calories, or about five times the recommended daily caloric intake for an adult.
Ten days later, Heart Attack was in the news again as a woman collapsed while chowing down a Double Bypass along with a margarita as she puffed on cigarettes.
In February, a man in his 40s suffered a heart attack after making his way through the 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger.
And last year the Heart Attack's 600-pound spokesperson died at age 29.
That's got to add up the "Best Of" something, however you look at it.
Have a Best Holiday Season!
