When given the chance to enjoy a night out in Montreal, you simply must take advantage.

That's exactly what Toronto Blue Jays star Jose Bautista did Thursday when he offered Chris Colabello $15,000 to eat eight pounds of lobster mac and cheese at one of Montreal's finest dining establishments.

Colabello thoughtfully considered his teammate's generous offer, before eventually declining - a decision that saddened his friends, but will likely elicit sighs of relief from both manager John Gibbons and the team's clubhouse attendants.

Toronto will face the Boston Red Sox in a pair of exhibition games at Montreal's Olympic Stadium this weekend.
