Crack Fries Eating Contest:
Come Paws Chicago. Contestants must sign up in advance, either by email, by phone, or in person by 2:30pm on January 20th. 3pm, we’ll be hosting a Crack Fries eating contest. There's a $5 entry fee that will be matched by HopCat with all proceeds being donated to PAWS Chicago.
To sign up, contact our General Manager, Tyler Muller, attmuller@hopcat.com or call 312-257-2599, or sign up in person at the restaurant by asking your server/bartender.
Once the contest begins, you’ll have six minutes to eat as many Crack Fries, by weight, as you can. The 1st Place winner will receive a HopCat prize package valued at $500 and the chance to compete for the grand prize - $2,000 and eternal glory as they're pitted against the other HopCat locations' winners in the World Championship Crack Fries Eating Contest at the 2018 Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Beer Festival
in Ypsilanti, MI.
If you don’t want to subject your stomach to that, you can just come and hang out, drink a beer, get some food and enjoy the festivities.
Other Details:
In addition to a $500 prize package, the first-place winner will be provided with a travel voucher to help cover the costs of getting to the 2018 Summer Beer Festival. 2nd place winner gets a HopCat prize package valued at $100. 3rd place winner gets a HopCat prize package valued at $25. 4th place has to sit at the bar while everyone points and laughs…not really…maybe.
