MAJOR LEAGUE EATING UPDATE!


This yearly pre-Mardi Gras event, Fat Tuesday King Cake Eating Championship @ Showboat AC  turned out to be a wild one. Though in the end it was Pat Bertoletti who woofed down 10.5 1/2 lb King Cakes in 8 minutes to win the $2,000 purse. Oh and for those at home keeping score, a king cake is a cinnamon bun type cake with Mardi Gras-type frosting (and a baby Jesus shoved in the middle).

  4. We have something similar to this for El Dia de los Reyes Magos. We celebrate the three wise men visiting sweet Jesus in Mexico. It's delicious. No, actually, it's dry and awful.

  14. I think it was Rosemont Academy or some other college I wanted to go to badly in New Orleans (pre-Katrina, man...did I dodge the bullet on THAT one!) had information king cakes in their brochure concerning the local color.

    I found it strange, that they'd include hanging out with friends at a coffee shop and eating the king cake together, whomever got the slice with the baby in it was considered lucky or had to buy the next cake, something like that.

    Still! 2MLE4U. Good times, man, good times. Almost makes me miss my cable shows (fuck yeah Man Versus Food, No Reservations, Bizarre Foods...), 'cept they're on Netflix now. :3
