Jamie McDonald is an aspiring competitive eater. Badhappy Poutine aspires to bring some Canadian excess to Chicago's soak-up-your-drunk dining scene. It's a match made in heaven— or maybe Indigestion Hell— but either way, you can see how it turns out tonight at 6 p.m. when McDonald will attempt to devour Badhappy's entire menu. Which amounts to five poutines, two burgers, a side of both poutine and frites and two milkshakes. It's less than eating the whole menu at Lao Sze Chuan, maybe, but at somewhere between 7 and 10 pounds of food, it's still enough to reduce ordinary eaters to quivering failures. On the other hand, McDonald ate that much when he devoured Real Urban Barbecue's 7-pound Home Wrecker in 25 minutes, so we're counting on him to make us proud. [RedEye]
