Call the Enquirer: Somebody's Eaten Sasquatch

Posted on Thu, Jan 4, 2007 at 4:00 AM

When Big Foot Lodge opened in 2005, it presented its customers with an unusual challenge: finish the four-pound Sasquatch burger in less than an hour and get the $19.99 cost back and your picture on the restaurant's hall of fame. On January 2nd, after 679 attempts, someone did it. Patrick Bertoletti of Chicago finished the burger in 11 minutes and 5 seconds. Bertoletti, who's ranked number three in the International Federation of Competative Eaters, set a record the following day in Louisiana by eating 53.5 dozen (!) oysters at the Acme Oyster House in Metarie.
