Go Go Curry Launches Annual Eating Competition
If you have always dreamed of being a competitive eater, and you love Japanese curry, there is finally an event for you. According to The Feedbag, last night was the first open-to-the-public preliminary round of the Go Go Curry Eating Championship. Don’t worry if you missed it, there will be 7 more qualifying time trial events every five days between now and May 20th. Qualifiers pay $20 to enter, and will be timed on how long it takes them to eat “two servings of the Original Walk (12oz) that is sold at Go Go Curry” cabbage not included. The top 5 times across all of the qualifying events will make it to the grand finals on May 30th, which will also be broadcast on the internet. If you’re interested, all the info is on the Go Go Curry Website- including a long list of pretty amazing rules involving shoveling (it is permitted), forks (they will provide a regulation fork), and vomiting (where you can and can’t do it).
If anybody thinks they have a shot, and wants to be sponsored by Midtown Lunch (UltimateBet style) shoot me an email. I might be willing to put up the fee for somebody who is willing to paint MidtownLunch.com on the side of their body. [Official Contest Web Page via The Feedbag]
