A Restaurant Where Anyone over 350 Pounds Eats for Free
A restaurant in Chandler, Arizona will serve free food to anyone over 350 pounds. It’s called the Heart Attack Grill, and its managers just hired a 600-pound man named Blair River to be a model in their commercials:
Blair River stands 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 600 pounds. His weight and his enthusiasm for the food at Chandler’s Heart Attack Grill have won him a $100-an-hour modeling contract.
This week he shot a YouTube video commercial to promote the grill, which invites anyone over 350 pounds to eat for free.[...]
The Heart Attack Grill, at 6185 W. Chandler Blvd. near Kyrene Road, has a medical theme. Waitresses are dressed in skimpy nurses’ uniforms. Customers, called patients, wear hospital gowns over their clothes. The menu features no diet drinks and high-calorie food called such memorable names as Double Bypass Burger. Fries are cooked in lard.
The restaurant is owned by former nutritionist Jon Basso, who ran a chain of seven Jenny Craig weight-loss centers in Oklahoma.
