The Opposite of Thrifty

On this Memorial Day, I'd be perfectly happy with a well done burger covered in a good spice rub cooked on a hot Weber grill. Alas, even if we could fit a grill on our fire escape, it would probably be illegal.

For gourmands with an unlimited budget and a more sophisticated taste in hamburgers, there's always the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in Manhattan. That's where you can get a gold-flecked hamburger for $175.

That's right, readers, there's no decimal point in that price.

The 10-ounce Kobe beef patty is also topped with black truffles, foie gras and aged Gruyere.

I'm sure the burger's good, but that wouldn't stop me from feeling sick over all the money I just spent downing cow covered in gold.
