Are you ready to prove you’re the Bean Burrito Eating Champion of the World – or at least the Phoenix metropolitan area? You’ll have your chance this Sunday, May 28 at Crescent Ballroom’s 2nd Annual Bean Burrito Eating Contest.

The contest is free to enter and begins at 8 p.m. Competitors will eat as many burritos as they can in five minutes and the top three men and women will win cash and gift cards. First place wins $250 cash, second place wins a $100 gift card to Crescent Ballroom and third place wins a $50 gift card to Valley Bar.

$250 will also be donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.

The event is free to attend for those who prefer to watch competitive eating, rather than participate.

Along with the main event, enjoy the sounds of DJ STLB3 and live music from Hyperbella (Cassidy & Co.) The event will be hosted by Anwar Newton (of “Literally the Worst Show Ever” and “This Week Sucks, Tonight!”) and refereed by Joe Doku.
