Sushi-eating contest gives a yearâ€™s worth of free sushi to first place winner
Calling all competitive eaters! RA Sushi in South Miami, the stylish sushi restaurant and bar, invites everyone from novice to professional food eaters to enter its Maki Madness sushi-eating contest on Saturday, April 9, 2011 from 6-close. RAâ€™s third annual Maki Madness is drawing sushi supporters and wasabi warriors from around the area to face-off in this culinary consumption competition.
Organized like a bracket system, this sushi-eating contest will take place in rounds and heats. Maki Madness eaters will be gaming against their opponents and a lot of sushi rolls. During the first three rounds, the competitors who demolish two uncut RA Sushi signature Tootsy Maki rolls (crab mix, shrimp and cucumber topped with tempura bits) in the fastest amount of time during their heat advance to the next round.
The â€œfinal sixâ€ competitors will compete in the championship â€œsushi showdown.â€ During this final round, opponents will eat as many Tootsy Maki as they can in three (3) minutes.
The grand prize eater will receive free sushi for a year, a $600 value (12 $50 RA Sushi gift certificates,) as well as bragging rights as the RA Sushi Maki Madness champion. Second place will win a $100 gift certificate, third place will receive a $50 gift certificate and fourth place will get a $25 gift certificate. All participants will receive a RA Sushi sweatband or t-shirt and participants who do not advance to the final four will receive Appetizer Cards for use during their next visit.
Maki Madness is limited to the first 40 entries. Applications are available at RA Sushi in South Miami, 5829 SW 73rd St. (across from The Shops at Sunset Place) or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RAsushiSouthMiami. Deadline to register is Friday, April 8 and all eaters must be at least 18 years old to participate.
