From our event system:
On Friday, August 19, Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town will host a pizza eating contest with Maryland’s Flying Dog Brewery. The idea for the eating contest was born after Paradiso beverage director Josh Fernands jokingly challenged Flying Dog’s brewery rep Nate Eckert to eat six pizzas in exchange for the restaurant picking up eight kegs of Flying Dog’s beer— a feat that he accomplished.
The event will be split into two separate contests: first, who can eat a large pizza in the fastest time, and second, who can eat the most pizza in 10 minutes. The first place winner will receive prizes from Flying Dog, a $75 gift certificate to Pizzeria Paradiso, and a cask beer of their choice from the brewery. The prize for second place will include a gift package from the Flying Dog. The eating contests will begin at 5:00 p.m. and all Flying Dog drafts including White Peach Saison, Carolina Reaper Peach IPA, Bloodline Nitro, Snake Dog, Numero Uno, Truth, and Easy IPA will be available at happy hour price from 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Guests can sign up to participate in the eating contest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
