Association of Independent Competitive Eaters (http://www.competitiveeaters.com/challenges.htm)

Sometimes, there are restaraunts that will have a challenge:

eat a large amount of food in a specific amount of time and win something.

Two questions:

1. Could you ever consider trying one of these?

2. Have you ever tried anything like this before?

There's a site called EatFeats - competitive eating blog, database & calendar (http://eatfeats.com/) that shows other challenges in big cities.

They have some in Cleveland:

HD, could you handle any of those?

Couple restaurants had a big burger challenge. One place (Gronks) was a pound burger and fries. Finish it and get your picture on the wall....I have 6 of them :)
2nd one was 2 half pound patties, cheeze, bacon, ham and sausage on a bun...mmmm......that one was just your name on the "wall of fame"

I se Gronks has a new one called the "Enger Burger"

The "Enger Tower Burger" This monster is just not right. Six of our famous burger patties with American Cheese between each layer of meat, served with home cut fries and slaw. EAT IT ALL IN 2 HOURS AND GET THE ENGER TOWER T-SHIRT FREE. Six stories of beef and 5 LBS of fun.

WARNING from our Sturgeon General: This burger is not for the weak at heart.
$20.25

When I was dating my wife (then girlfriend), one of the first places we went on a date was to a local BBQ joint called Hoggy's.

In an attempt at humor and to impress her, I tried the "Hoggy Challenge."

The challenge included the following:

Half Slab of Baby Back Ribs
Half Chicken
7" Pulled Pork Sandwich
Side of Cornbread
2 side dishes (Baked Beans & Chili Mac)

If you eat the entire meal, you get a cheesy t-shirt saying you completed the Hoggy Challenge.

Needless to say I failed miserably and had a stomach ache later. Yet for some reason, she still married me despite my piggish behavior. :)

That's too funny. Looks like it worked.

Probably felt superior and figure she could control this one pretty easy. ;)

No and No. I can eat all day, but I have never enjoyed eating a huge meal nor the feeling of having just swallowed a whale. Plus, I get sick as hell if I eat too much so there's no reason for me to even try.

1. Yes, but my wife would surely stop me.
2. See above.

I think I could definitely conquer the Hoggy Challenge that HD attempted....maybe this summer I will :)

I almost did and probably could've done it if it wasn't for the bread on the sandwich, the cornbread and the mac & cheese.

Bread and starches fill me up more than anything!

Never knew Hoggys had that challenge. Normally head to Quaker Stake when I'm in Valley View. I'll have to give it a try this summer movie season.
