A certain friend of mine has requested that I enter the 3rd Annual Southside Cheese Steak Eating Competition. She knows that I participated in the inaugural event, but at the time she lived in Washington DC.

Of those who apply, only 20 contestants are selected. Last time I finished in the middle of the pack, consuming three feet in 15 minutes. Time, as opposed to space, was the limiting factor for me. In fact, immediately after the competition I ate a Mexican dinner. Last year I didn’t apply to be included. I can’t decide whether or not I should try to get in this time around. Let me know what you think!
