TAG | mac n’ cheese
If you (or someone you know) can virtually inhale a slice of Ian’s mac n’ cheese you should check out our upcoming eating contest. Not the “How Much Can You Eat and Subsequently Barf” type contest (we’ve all seen the aftermath of that Saturday night activity on the streets of Madison Sunday morning…) but a timed event where it all comes down to how fast you can chow down a slice of cheese, and then a slice of mac n’ cheese.
This is the fourth year we’ve run this contest, and now that we kind of maybe sort of know what we’re doing we’re pulling out all the stops – not that a free semester worth of pizza is anything to ignore – but this time around you can win an iPad in addition to that free pizza. Second & third places even get some love with prizes from Fontana Sports & T.C. Katz bar. Even the hopeless loser who take 7.5 minutes to savor his slice can win a prize if he is crowned “Fan Favorite”. (We can only hope the guy who showed up in a boxing robe with a trainer last year comes back for that one…)
Also new this year, real live music from The Big Payback and real professional emcees from Comedy Club on State.
Sign up happens in both Madison restaurants through Sunday, September 19th, and the event is Thursday, September 23rd at Library Mall on State Street from 5-7pm.
Wow! Next year maybe this whole thing will be on ESPN 8 “The Ocho”.
