Firecracker Burger at Skybox Sports Bar & Grill

Here’s a hamburger so hot you’ll have to sign a waiver to order it–literally. The 8-ounce patty is blended with Bhut Jolokia chili pepper, rated the world’s hottest pepper in 2007. It’s also covered with pepper jack cheese and chipotle salsa for good measure. If you do manage to finish this smoking-hot meal, you can extinguish the flames with an ice-cold draft beer, yours on the house. And no, refunds are not offered if you can’t make it through your meal. $18, in Aria, 590-8545.
