21 Feb Second Year of Defeat the Meat to be Held March 5th
What happens when a bunch of hungry contestants come face-to-face with a pile of spicy, meaty pigs on a wing? One big, rib-sticking contest, that’s what! On Sunday, March 5th, it’s the second annual Defeat the Meat Contest at Bethany Blues of Lewes! Contestants have already been registering for the meatiest showdown Sussex County has ever seen, and General Manager Strohm Edwards is anticipating a stomach-stretching good time.
“This is going to be an outrageous contest, and a rowdy night in the bar.” Edwards is excited to see returning champion from last year, Kenny Terhune, coming back to defend his title. Also returning Ducky Sheets with be returning to emcee the contest. Last year’s event was competitive, and lively with 15-20 competitive eaters. As the contest commenced, the audience really got into cheering and jeering as the eaters sunk their teeth into the competition.
When the big day arrives, the kitchen at Blues will be cranking out pans upon pans of pigs on a wing, and dousing them in extra hot sauce. During the 13 minute eat-down, no one is allowed to consume any beverages, making the challenge two-fold: consumption of ribs and tolerance of hot sauce. It’s a tall order, and the winner, as we learned last year, is not always the obvious favorite.
Whoever can consume the most in the 13 minutes will reign victorious, and will rake in $150 in cash and free pigs on a wing for an entire year! With a prize that sweet, you know that there are going to be a bunch of people hungry for the win.
