Best Reason to Wash Ground Beef From Your Moustache

Archie's Place and Payette Brewing Company's Sloppy Joe Eating Contest

Most wouldn't call slurping up massive amounts of ground beef in red sauce a cause for celebration. But as eating competitions go, the Archie's Place and Payette Brewing Company Sloppy Joe eating contest is the great equalizer. In 2011, Big Hungry took home the title for eating 19 sloppy joe sandwiches in four minutes. On Saturday, Oct. 6, Archie's Place will welcome two heats--one pitting mere mortals against each other and the second challenging one brave joe-eater to take on Big Hungry. Archie's Place, archies-place.com; Payette Brewing Company, 111 W. 33rd St., Garden City, 208-344-0011, payettebrewing.com
