Eat like Mike at one sixtyblue

Sorry Mike, no smoking, even in your own restaurant.

Try this: eat a steak and baked potato, then go out and play a fast-paced game of basketball. Sounds tough, right? Apparently, that's exactly what soon-to-be Hall of Famer Michael Jordan did on the reg. He really is superhuman.

West Loop restaurant one sixtyblue (partly owned by MJ himself) celebrates His Airness's September 11 induction by offering the meal that the star supposedly ate before every contest. The Pre-Game Ritual Dinner includes a 14-ounce, prime aged Delmonico rib eye smothered with caramelized shallots and served with a baked potato and steamed broccoli for $39. Wash it all down with Jordan's favorite cocktail, a margarita with cranberry juice ($8).

The deal runs from September 7-12, so get there while it lasts. Just remember not to eat with your tongue hanging out -- and wait at least 30 minutes before dunking.
