MILWAUKEE – Westown Association and Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery are seeking contestants for the 8th Annual Bash O’ Corned Beef Easting Contest. This year’s champion will win a Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery gift basket and two tickets to a Milwaukee Brewers game. The contest will immediately follow the noon St. Patrick’s Day Parade press conference held at The Avenue, 161 W Wisconsin Avenue on the second floor adjacent to the Plankinton Clover Apartments.

Brave contestants will duel it out to see who can eat the most corned beef sliders, provided by Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. Each contestant will get ten sliders and will have a total of ten minutes to eat as many as they can. Last year’s winning total was just over seven sliders.
