Yes they are.

Hamburger Meat From Three Continents, But Is It Worth $100?

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A hundred bucks might buy you more than six dozen cheeseburgers from McDonald's but none will compare to the one brawny beef bucket introduced Tuesday in the swanky Old Homestead Steakhouse.

Boca Raton Mayor Steven Abrams could barely speak between bites as he devoured the 20-ounce, 100-dollar hamburger billed as the "beluga caviar of sandwiches."

The burger debuted Tuesday at the restaurant in the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where a membership costs $40,000 and an additional $3,600 a year.

At about five and a half inches across and two and a half inches thick, the mound of meat is comprised of beef from three continents -- American prime beef, Japanese Wagyu and Argentine cattle.

No wonder why....it's The Old Homestead. Heck, they're the Louis Comfort Tiffany of the steak world. If they can't charge $100 for a burger, nobody can.

In Boca, that is actually almost reasonable! You are talking about a city that is so exclusive, they don't even allow car dealerships in the city limits to put cars out where the public can see them. You gotta cross over to Delray for that kind of thing!
Just a few miles up the road, you can go to the local Publix grocery store and see Rolls Royces in the parking lot! (Of course, it's the hired help that are doing the shopping!)
Some people have more money than they know what to do with!
Lot's of dollars, but no sense!
