The $250 burger
« on: February 08, 2015, 03:00:50 PM »
Well, I guess you can have more than one burger, but still...ridiculous. You can wash it down with some pricey Amstel Light as well. For $250 I'd want something other than Amstel, just saying...

Someone invited me to this event and I politely declined. :-) I was tempted to offer to cook them a burger at my place if they paid me $250, but I was too nice to do that.

$250 for this?



But seriously it's an event with 25 burger chiefs. So if you have one from each chef, that makes it $10 a burger.

I guess in a past year, a neighboring hotel decided to take a shot at this event by offering an $18 burger. Still a little ridiculous, but think of the money you're saving! ;-)

If $250 for a burger shocks you don't read any further.

No city does over-the-top quite like Las Vegas, home to the The Fleurburger 5000, which is America’s (and the world’s) most expensive burger. Priced at a wallet-busting $5,000, the decadent Kobe beef burger comes loaded with foie gras and black truffles, and its is encased in a truffle-infused brioche bun. When you order the Fleurburger, you automatically receive a bottle of Chateu Petrus 1995, which the restaurant has listed at $5,300—so, technically, you’re getting the burger for free. You get to sip the wine out of a Ichendorf Brunello glass, which you’re allowed to keep for bragging purposes. You know, just in case you want to prove to your friends how you spent $5,000 in Vegas…on a burger

Once again, you are doing free advertising. For a place that only has these things FOR THE PURPOSES OF PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT IT TO ADVERTISE IT. Jesus christ. Good job.

I'm pretty sure this would be $250 today with beef prices the way they are....

This is an event so think of it as the price of an event ticket, not a burger. I've never paid that much to go to the theater or an opera but seats that cost that much or more are out there.
