LOL - That's GOT to be the "Free 72-oz steak" at The Big Texan in Amarillo, TX.

It's not really "eat one - get one free". It's eat it within an hour and get it for free - or you pay for it .... here are the rules.

As far as I know (according to the records) only 2 people have been able to polish off 2 steaks (9 lbs of cow + 2 salads, 2 shrimp cocktails, 2 rolls) in the 1-hour time limit. Klondike Bill, a professional wrestler, back in the 1960s - and Richard LaFeare who chomped his way through 2 steaks on the "Donny & Marie Osmond Show" in 2000.

I've eaten there a dozen times or so ... when I was living in Golden, CO and driving back and forth for Christmas and summer vacations ... Amarillo was my 1/2 way point - always put on the feedbag there and spent the night.

I can scarf down a bunch of cow - but when you stand there and look at a 4.5-lbs slab (to be consumed within 60-minutes) .... I pass.

But - they do have great steaks!

Soup (with only paper plates to serve it on and only knives and forks to eat with)!

On very hot days I've seen desserts based on both jell-o and chocolate turn to pools of melted liquid

(BTY - completely hilarious thread! My brain is still out of it from this flu to think of anything nearly as funny as you guys have done )

I used to go with my dh to the golf tournament (TPC)and it was amazing to see some girls there in heels. What could they be thinking - walking for miles up and down the terrain - some on concrete paths - some on wooded paths. - Not a cookout - but what not to take, anyway!
