The Palms hotel in Las Vegas now offers a $6,000 hamburger (actually the staff just runs to the nearby Carl's Jr. and picks it up). Why so expensive? The burger is served with a bottle of 1982 Pétrus.
In a series of ads for the burger, the Maloof brothers, owners of the Palms, as well as of the Sacramento Kings, are depicted indulging in the extravagant pairing. But they aren't actually drinking Pétrus in the ad. This week's Unfiltered features a close-up shot of the label on the bottle in the ad, and we can't figure out what it is. Can you?
And what do you think of pairing Carl's Jr. with Pétrus. In Sideways, Miles pairs his 1961 Cheval-Blanc with fast food. Anyone care to admit to any other secret indulgences with their fine wines? I've always liked Champagne and salty french fries...
