In that case Ill take even money on the no. Let me know how much you're booking.



I think I will get much better offers if this should take place.

To respond to my own post, I found this article: NINE OF THE CRAZIEST FOOD CHALLENGES IN LAS VEGAS. We're already in talks to do #9:



The McNugget Challenge is not as out of the question as I thought, based on his last Email.



Based on the variety and the quantity, #9 seems way out of reach. It is roughly equivalent to eating 29 quarter pound burgers.. and a pack of Twinkies. It would be difficult to find takers on the "Yes" without very long odds.

I think #8 could be more of an interesting challenge. I don't know anything about their tacos, but I do know tacos come in a variety of sizes.

Do you have a CV on your almost cousin-in-law? Has he done any organized eating competitions (even a pie eating contest at a company picnic)?


Edit: There was a pancake challenge at the Golden Gate downtown. I don't know if it is still being offered. Great breakfast's there.

Here is a link to a pretty comprehensive (but not necessarily up to date) list of eating challenges in Nevada eatfeats.com

The 36" pizza seems doable.

2. Seven-Second Beer Challenge (Todd English P.U.B. at The Shops at Crystals)

Pick a beer, any beer, and if you can down a pint of it in seven seconds, itís free. Bartenders come armed with seven-second hourglass timers. Slam that pint down and hit it on the bar in those seven ticks and the beer is yours.

Easy. I'll be doing this one next month for sure.

For any craft beer lover, Todd English is by far the worst place in Vegas to enjoy a good beer. Prices for 12oz craft beers are double even over priced places on the strip. Example, which is probably still on tap, Abita Spring IPA, cost $122 a half barrel (Yields 132 pints) $11.50 a 12oz draft draft. Cost less than $1.00 a draft, Sure rents are high in Vegas but 7% cost is insane. Visit these local breweries and even with the cost of a cab you are far ahead if you drink more than 1 or 2 at $5 as pint or less

Downtown:

Hop Nuts
Chicago (At 4 Queens)
Triple7 (Main St Station)
Banger Brewing (Fremont)

Strip
Sin City (3 locations, $5 drafts)

Henderson
Bad Beat Brewing
Hopcraft

Or visit Aces and Ales (2 locations) for great crafts from around the world for $4 to $6

Todd English is a rip off for food and beer.

I have eaten there lots of times as the Red Rock is close to where I live. Their tacos are quite little. The tortilla is about the size of a DVD. Although small, they are very tasty. He said that was an option too.

All I know he is woofed down that McDonalds burger and he did a wings challenge at Hooters, the specifics I don't recall right now, but I think it was about 40 or 50 wings.

I'd prefer to do a challenge with a forum member but none are stepping up.

I am pretty sure that I could eat 32 tacos. I had to back away from the McNugget challenge due to the chemicals but I'd be down for 32 tacos. Probably slightly more quantity than the nuggets but doable in my opinion. Haven't had their tacos but thinking along the lines of Tacos El Gordo size wise.

How quick can a person eat 2 Chipotle burritos?

You want to eat things that have lots
of air in them, and McDung-gets have
none. They sit there like an iron ball
in your gut. Tacos make sense. The
taco shell takes no room at all, and
the filling is meat and lots of sauce.

Do the tacos. All meat, no beans.

Not if people are smart(OK obviously it cant be even money)

We have been letting the line get out of hand. I swear, I was getting odds on the no at the beginning. Now I have to give as much as 5 to 1 on the no.


I'm asking all the NO's to quit taking the bets until the price becomes reasonable again.

I know I set a bad example when I made Maxpen that offer, But I was fairly certain Max didn't have any clue what he was getting himself into. I was fairly certain he would grab a 20 piece and then realize what a bad bet he was getting himself into.
