Heart Attack Fells Diner at the Heart Attack Grill

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 10:39 AM

Every now and then, Gut Check puts away our snark and presents a story without comment. This is one of those occasions.

A man dining at the Heart Attack Grill, a Las Vegas restaurant that offers "Triple Bypass Burgers" and French fries cooked in pure lard and clothes its waitresses in masturbatory nurses costumes and comps your meal if you tip the scales over 350, had a heart attack, reports Sin City's Fox 5 News:

"He was having the sweats and shaking," said 'Nurse' Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant when the man in his 40s began experiencing chest pains.

The Heart Attack Grill posted an update on its Facebook page:

The nursing staff and I are pleased to report that the coronary event experienced on Saturday evening was not fatal. The gentleman is making a strong recovery in a nearby Las Vegas hospital.

OK. One snarky comment, via a colleague: "This is the least shocking medical-condition-vis-a-vis-name incident since Joe's Crab Shack gave me the crabs."
