If you think you can eat a lot of meatball you should sign up for Mamma DiSalvo’s 2nd annual Meatball Eating Contest. On Thursday, March 8th at 6pm in the DiSalvo’s Party Room contestant will have 2 minutes to chow down on as many meatballs as they can. Contestants pay $10 to enter and the winner not only gets bragging rights and a $50 gift certificate to Mamma DiSalvo’s and a gift basket of Mamma’s goodies! If you think you’ve got a wining appetite you can sign up online to compete this year! It’s also a timely contest, since March 9th is National Meatball Day!
Last year there were 10 men (hopefully some women will sign up this year) who took on the challenge and started out with a plate of a dozen meatballs and were informed they could not use a fork or their hands to eat with. Many of our contestants had grand ambition thinking they would eat 20-30 meatballs. With fans cheering the meat eaters on, Kris Mick was declared the winner eating 13 meatballs! Kris also won the first winner of the Submarine House Super Duper Cheesesteak Challenge.
Judges for the event will include The Big Ragu from Dayton’s Food Adventure Crew and Dayton.com’s Sarah Franks.
