I am attempting to enter my first contest.
The 4th Annual Pastrami Joe’s Rueben Eating Championship, in Marshall, MI. I will basically have to eat as many 1lb Reuben sandwiches as possible in 8 minutes. The winner of professional’s contest last year ate 5.7 sandwiches, which clearly makes him an amateur. Couldn’t finish that last .3 of a Reuben sandwich? I am coming for victory.
Until then, the plan goes as follows..
First I will take out the Bomber breakfast, which has haunted me for the last few months. It called me last night and accused me of ducking it. I am in no way trying to duck this breakfast, and I will destroy it in a few short days. Just you wait.
From there, in no particular order..
- The Bomb Burger at Burdick’s in Kalamazoo. This burger has a pound of ground steak stopped with extra pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo and Mustard served with one pound of fries, a side of coleslaw, and a pickle. If I can finish that, I get a free t-shirt.
- Pizza Eating Contest at the Manchester Fair. Not until July, still trying to find more information.
- Definitely going to make the trip to Tony’s I-75 in Birch Run to tear through some food.
There aren’t many things within reasonable driving distance so I’m still working on all of this.
