When it comes to bringing da meat, Bethany Blues of Lewes has the meatiest contest this side of the Indian River Inlet Bridge, and it’s back for the fourth year in a row! Defeat The Meat is taking place on Sunday, April 7th, at 6:30PM and this year is going to be the biggest, juiciest competition EVER!  Sponsored by Bud Light, and generally celebrated by rib enthusiasts everywhere, this year’s event will come complete with a live radio broadcast with Whiskey and Randy from Froggy 99.9. 

“This year our event has grown, and it should be an exciting night” says Jessica Nathan, Director of Operations at Bethany Blues. “Strohm Edwards will be emceeing the event, and we are lining up lots of First Responders for our initial round, which is dedicated to them.” 

During the initial round, which will begin at 6:30PM, our First Responders from around the county will go head-to-head in their own round where one colossal eater will win the proceeds from the entry fees plus free entry for the public round and 10% of the bar sales for the night. Not to mention, full bragging rights. Then, during the public round, entrants will eat their way to glory where the winner will be awarded a new, pristine Defeat the Meat Championship belt, $200 in cold, hard cash and an order of pigs on the wing everyday for a full year. 

The competition is going to be lit, and the atmosphere will be jovial, so even if you aren’t into shoving tons of spicy ribs into your gut, come on down and cheer on the competitive eaters! There is nothing more American than shouting at people while they try and eat more food than is reasonable, after all! Plus, you can come in and take advantage of the specials that night. The Bud Light special will be $3 pints / $10 pitchers. And of course, there will be pigs on the wing! $10 regular order or $8 if you dare to try the suicide sauce that the competitors are eating!

Sign ups will begin at 5:30PM, on April 7th, or your can get your buns down to Blues of Lewes and get on the list ahead of time.
