Top-ranked Major League Eaters—yep, there’s a league for that—will converge on Louisville for the Wild Eggs National Pancake-Eating Championship on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 2 p.m.
The gut-bust, gag-reflexing event will be held at Wild Eggs’ Westport Village location at 1311 Herr Lane.
Granted, in a country that’s killing itself by eating too much and then insisting healthcare resolve the aftereffects, such competitions may appear counterintuitive. But, hey, this is America, right? Flirting with digestive disaster is worth it when money’s on the line! Still, if you’ve ever seen one these contests, you must admit, they’re pretty dang fun to watch.
Officially sanctioned by Major League Eating, the world governing body of all stomach-centric sports, the 10-minute, all-you-can-eat contest will feature some of the world’s top-ranked competitive chowhounds battling cheek-to-jowl with local challengers.
