In keeping with today’s earlier post about insanely fatty foods, I’m cordially inviting you to come and eat yourself to an early grave in what has become an annual event.

Each year, on the same Sunday as Toronto’s Santa Claus Parade (and the Sunday closest to our friend Marty’s birthday), we venture to Dangerous Dan’s Diner at Queen Street East and Broadview (northeast corner) to enjoy the Coronary Burger Combo.  Here’s how it’s described on the menu:

“2 8oz Patties, 4 Slices of Bacon, 2 Slices of Cheddar and a Fried Egg on top. Served w/ Fries and Gravy, Can of Pop and Mayo as a garnish for sure!
Only $ 14.95”

Note the pop can for size reference. YIKES!

The fried egg takes a bit of work to get around, but the rest is mighty tasty and is well worth the meat sweats you’ll be having for the rest of the day.

We’re going to “meat” up at Dangerous Dan’s at 2pm on Sunday, November 15 so wear your stretchiest pants and make sure you have someone responsible on hand to keep an eye on you for the rest of the day. It might be a good idea if that person has and knows how to use a defibrillator.

In case that didn’t tempt you enough, here’s some more vile photographic evidence of what we’ve consumed in the past and what you can hope to consume in your very near future.

So, if you’re man or woman enough to test your mettle in battle of wills against a giant burger, come on out.  Everyone is welcome, including mere spectators.  Bring cameras too.

There’s an event created in Facebook too, if you want to officially join there.  Photos and video can be uploaded there after the event, and I’ll share some of the choicest shots in here the week after.

    Hi Dave This is Amy from Dangerous Dan’s – I am pleased that you and your friends are coming down on Sunday November 15 to eat until your hearts explode. As you know we are a small place and when there are largish groups coming in we love a heads up. Please give James a call at the Diner 416-463-7310 and let him in on your numbers.
    Thanks Amy

  2. Will do, Amy! Thanks for the heads up. By then I should have a better idea of numbers, but we’re rarely in a hurry to get out of there.
