Oops, next year I promise to post before the event takes place!
From a press release:
Tenleytown’s Z-Burger ushered in the 4th of July weekend by celebrating American culture with a hearty dose of competition and burgers. On Thursday, July 1st Z-Burger welcomed 12 contestants to go “burger to burger” in their Second Annual Independence Burger Eating Championship.
Interested eaters completed an application process conducted by Z-Burger to claim a spot in the match. The 12 lucky chosen contestants traveled by foot, car and plane to take on the challenge. In 10 minutes time, each contender had to down as many 2.8 pound Z-Burgers as possible. They were even monitored for two minutes after the race as part of the “regurgitation = disqualification” policy.
The race was neck and neck for many of the hopefuls but in the end it was last year’s first place champion that again came out on top. Swallowing 23 burgers, Pete Czerwinski “Furious Pete” of Ontario was crowned the first place champion taking home $3,000 cash and $1,500 in Z-Burger food vouchers.
The second and third place winners finished close behind Pete. Dale Boone “The Mouth of the South,” of Atlanta reclaimed the second place seat finishing with 21 burgers and took home $1,500 cash and $750 in Z-Burger food vouchers. Making his contest debut, Brian Dudzinski “Dud Light” of Phoenixville, PA consumed 20 burgers to finish in third place taking home $750 cash and $500 in Z-Burger food vouchers.
All top three contestants received custom-made Z-Burger trophies. They will also have the option and be encouraged to donate food prizes to local charities of their choice.
Z-Burger completed the celebration with free burgers for all customers following the event.
