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.
