Argentango Grill Opens in Boca, Swank Farms Does CSA, Man Versus Corned Beef at TooJay's

•  Adding a Boca Raton location to its Hollywood older brother is Argentango Grill (504 Villa De Palmas; 561-416-2213), known for its 28-ounce skirt steak that comes rolled up like the sidewalks in Boca after 10 p.m., not to mention all the other kinds of meat you could ever hope to eat. There's chicken, fish, and pasta too, but if you're a confirmed vegetarian, you might want to start edging toward the exit before your hair bursts into flames.

To sign up, call 561-202-5648.

There, whoever downs the most six-ounce corned beef sandwiches in ten minutes walks away with ten grand, not to mention one helluva case of indigestion. For all the relevant details, go here ( and see if you're man enough to defeat food.
