Eating contests and Eating challenges around Kona & Denver

Take Two

Mannie & Bo's Pizzeria in Golden. Jimmy & I each tried the calzone challenge separately a few months ago. Neither of us defeated it. We went back at the end of June to try it as a team.

Before cooking it. 6 pounds of goodness! Lots of meat. Lots of cheese.

Now it is cooked & we're ready!

Before our team attempt, the calzone's record is 17-0. Nobody has defeated it. One person has an hour. A team of two people has 30 minutes.

Wow. 4 pounds of meat.

Letting it cool a bit.

We cut it in half, cut each half in half, and dig in.

It's hot, no doubt.

Working on our first quarters. We flew through these.

We're each on our final portions.

We got through our first portions in no time (four minutes or so). But each of us hit a wall or something. That's common for me - in my last cheesesteak run I flew through the first half in 3 minutes but limped in with 19 minutes for the other half.

Me shoving in the last bit. Jimmy had finished his half a few minutes earlier. He ate a few bites off my pile. That's a team player move!


The champs!

The Smart Car!


We're first, bitches. But our 23 minute time gives other teams a very real shot at coming in better than our time...
