Can someone list some good eating challenges for me?

Stuff like huge pizzas, burgers, etc. etc. Man vs. Food esque stuff. I would greatly appreciate it.

  1. eagle deli in cleveland circle has gotten national press for the challenge burger, 5 pounds of beef, 20 slices of cheese, 20 slices of bacon and 5 pounds of fries.

    i believe it was featured on man vs. food in fact.

          No, that was the prior challenge. They double the amount each time someone gets through it, but the thing now is lifethreateningly too huge. You might make it through the burger but no way on the fries.

            I called and they said someone finished the 5lb burger, 5lb fries. But apparently it will get bigger.

          don't forget the half-sour pickle, too. i was there once when this kid, 16 or 17 and maybe 120 lbs soaking wet, was working through the eagles' challenge. they don't give you the pickle until about halfway through, and on it's own plate. they put your name on a plaque if you finish, and take a polaroid for the 'wall of shame' if you don't.

        3. Spike's has a hot dog (or veggie dog if you prefer) eating wall of fame. You have to eat like 7 or something for them to take a polaroid of you and stick it on the wall. They're in Davis Square and a few other places.

          1. Estragon has a pig head. You need to order it in advance.

              1. two part challenge:

                1. Consume the roast pork sub from J. Pace. (Tues and Thurs only)
                2. Return to work and achieve anything whatsoever. No napping.

                  Oh, THAT one is easy...I just did that last Thursday. The walk back to my office in Fort Point, helped, though :)

                    If one frequents the Blossom Ct outlet, there's a step 0:

                    0: Hope that they actually have it on Tues and Thurs (I have been in at least one T/Th a week for a few months now and have only seen the roast pork there once)
