Call for competitive eaters

Buffalo Soup-Fest organizers are looking for a few good eaters—at least five eaters, anyway.
At 1 p.m. Jan. 29 on the Millennium Hotel stage, competitors will be challenged to eat as much soup as possible in a 10-minute window. The soup will be the chef’s choice, but organizer Matt Carlucci said it’ll probably end up being a type of cream-based soup. You’re not getting away easy here.
The contestant who downs the most soup will win a $100 Visa gift card and a trophy. The soup must stay down—if you know what I’m sayin’—or else the competitor is disqualified.
It looks like Hungry Hungry Buffaloes eater Phil Kneitinger has already agreed to participate, which means there’s a good chance you’ll be on camera should you choose to accept this soupy challenge.
