Newly Found

I ran across a few photos from the Tube Steaks at the Taste Hot Dog Eating Contest from Labor Day 2011:

Find Tibet Here

If you got a serious need to get your Tibet goods, look no further than Silver Sky Imports. All kinds of Yoga and Meditation stuff, Himalayan Salt Lamps, Crystal Singing Bowls, and their specialty: Tibetan Singing Bowls! If you do not believe me then just take a look at everything they offer! And read the FAQs to get all the info about the company that you could ever want. And the customer service is second to none! Great return and refund policy so you can be sure you get what you want, and when you want it! Have a look and check it out!

Apollo 5

Taste of Philly opened a very nice new location in Castle Rock. New location, new wall of fame to get on.

I hoped to be the 1st on the new wall, but it turns out that a guy had been in the night before and finished in 52 minutes (staff says he ran out and puked right away).

T-bonz and I get down there. I finally got to meet the owner/franchisor/franchisee (?) of the four locations at which I have taken on the Apollo Challenge. Martin Garvey - great guy, and younger than I expected - congratulations to him (on his success, not on being young - though that's great).

After some formalities, Martin cooks up the Apollo, and it's on.

It's steamy hot! And very cheesy! I crush the first half in under 5 minutes. The record time that Jimme holds is certainly within reach!

But I do not maintain that speed on the 2nd half. The last 3 Apollo attempts for me have been that way. I bust ass on the 1st half but limp in on the 2nd.

Ended up finishing in just over 18 minutes. Fifth time. And fun time. For 2011, I am 4-4.

Apollo 1 - 4

Yesterday I took on the Apollo Cheesesteak Challenge at Taste of Philly for the 5th time. This time at their new Castle Rock location. While I work on the fifth installment, here are links to the 4 previous attempts.
