Jake’s Deli & the Westown Association 4th Annual Corned Beef Eating Contest
Scheduled for Friday, March 11th at 12:30pm in conjunction with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Press Conference
Milwaukee, WI— On Friday, March 11th at 12:30pm in center court of the Shops of Grand Avenue, Jake’s Deli and the Westown Association will host Jake’s Bash O’ Corned Beef- the 4th Annual Corned Beef Eating Contest. The event will take place immediately following the 12:15pm press conference for the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin’s 50th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Contestants will duel it out in the fourth annual Jake’s Bash O’ Corned Beef to see who can eat the most Jake’s Deli corned beef sandwiches in eight minutes. Six contestants will be competing for the coveted title.
Each sandwich will weigh a ½ pound, and Jake’s Deli will optimistically prepare ten sandwiches per contestant. “A sandwich from Jake’s Deli is no little feat. Being the fourth year of the contest, we can go off of last year’s winning total of just over 6 sandwiches and assume that the winner this year will take it up a notch.” says Jake’s Deli. Any leftover sandwiches will be passed out to the crowd.
The winner of the contest takes home a trophy along with a downtown Milwaukee prize package including a one night stay at the Hilton, $50 Miller Time Pub and a Jakes gift card.
The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin’s 50th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will make its return to Downtown Milwaukee on Saturday, March 12th at Noon. The parade steps off on Wisconsin Avenue at Old World Third Street and will wind its way through the streets of Downtown Milwaukee, finishing at Water St. and Highland Ave.
