There's no better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than by shoving six pounds of burrito down your gullet for the fame, fortune and glory of becoming the burrito eating champion of Tacoma. Masa is holding their fourth annual "Jefe de Jefe" six pound burrito eating contest on May 5 at 7 p.m., and you're invited.
Did I mention you can win cash? Oh, yes. The prize is a whopping $300 and priceless bragging rights.
Contestants can enter the competition at Masa up to 45 minutes before the event, and must sign and application/waiver. The fee to enter is $25, and latecomers will be disqualified.
How does it work? The competition lasts for ten minutes, with the winner being the first to finish the entire giant burrito, as determined by the judges.
Also at Masa that night will be live music starting at 5:30 p.m., with DJs both upstairs and downstairs.
Why not add a stomachache to that hangover you're already going to have?
For more rules and to enter, visit Masa at 2811 Sixth Avenue, Tacoma or contact them at 253.254.0560.
Off duty rules.
