Full Of Fowl Play
Axia 3 Turkey Invitational Top Prize Winner
Coming in as a close second to the fast-paced, fast eating indigestion and agida of the Annual Nathan's Famous Fourth Of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island, Brooklyn each year, is the Axia 3 Thanksgiving Invitational held further uptown last week at Artie's Delicatessen here in Manhattan.
The top prize went to Pat Bertoletti of Chicago, who scoffed down 4.8 pounds of turkey in twelve minutes, but Manhattan's own Tim "Eater X" Janus came in second, with famed downtown roué Jason "Crazy Legs" Conti coming in fourth. Arturo Rios of New Jersey took third.
Needless to say, the results were encouraging for all fans of New York's competitive eaters -- antacids, not included.
Be sure to burp first, then read more about it here at NY Metro's Grub Street.
