Do you love bacon? No, seriously, do you LOVE bacon? If the answer is yes, and if you are prepared to go gut-to-gut with your fellow baconthusiasts to devour heaping plates of the pork product, mark your calendars for October 15, which is when The Capital is having a Bacon Eating Contest.
An event like this needs very little explaining, though it must be noted there’s a $10 entry fee–the proceeds are going to BC Children’s Hospital, so if it helps to know you’ll be pigging out for a cause, so be it.
The Capital’s rules are pretty basic: The event will take place in heats, and each round will be (a merciful) 40 seconds long. Contestants will be chowing down from plates of bacon that have been pre-measured to be of equal weight. Each heat’s winner will face off and one “Ultimate Bacon Champion” will emerge.
And, no, the event is not sponsored by Pepto-Bismol, but you’ll probably want to pack some if you’re partaking.
The Capital’s Bacon Eating Contest takes place on Sunday, October 15 at 6 pm at 1178 Davie Street. $10 entry fee can be paid to any bartender or manager on duty any day/time prior to the contest.
