Everyone prepare your appetite! Zippy's Giant Burgers holding a Burger Eating Contest July 22
On Sunday July 22nd at 2:00pm Zippy's Giant Burgers in White Center is staging their first Burger Eating Contest.
This is a classic all you can eat, speed eating contest in which contestants are given approximately 8 minutes to gobble, swallow and keep down as many plain "Little Zip" burgers as they can. It will be staged outdoors in the parking area.
The winner will get a trophy according to Zippy himself, or as he prefers to be called, Lord Zippy Blaine. "If you vomit you are disqualified," said Blaine laughing.
The entry fee is $10 but the total number that can enter is 20, so if you plan to compete, arrive early. Registration begins at 10am on the 22nd.
The menu will also be a bit different that day with "throw back" prices that are what they were when Zippy's first opened and only smaller burgers will be served.
Contestants must be 18 years or older and must have valid id and fill out a waiver form.
Zippy's Giant Burgers is located at 9614 14th Ave SW in White Center. Their number is 206.763.1347.
In attendance for the event will be employees Dominic Jensen, Chris and Craig two other Zippy's chefs and of course Lord Zippy.
