Summary
REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS OPEN!

Great news, people. Great news, indeed. Great news for all. Well, bad news if you are a shrimp. The World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship–At The Meijer Tailgate Party on Georgia Street returns to MLE's 2017 slate of sanctioned eating contests. Those who have competed in the event previously, or who have dined at the World Famous St. Elmo restaurant in a civilian capacity, will know that there is no shrimp cocktail on the planet like the St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail. That is because the World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail is world-renowned as a horseradish-infused seafood treat that clears sinuses fast. Indeed, this is not an event for those with weak constitutions or a weakness of spirit.

The #1-ranked eater in the world, Joey Chestnut, is hardly weak of constitution or spirit. At the 2016 installment of The World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship–At The Meijer Tailgate Party on Georgia Street, Chestnut claimed his fourth straight title, setting a new world record by eating 15 pounds of St Elmo Shrimp Cocktail in eight minutes. He will return to defend his St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail title and attempt to once more destroy the dreams of those who aspire to the summit of competitive shrimp cocktail consumption.

Do you dare challenge Joey Chestnut in the event he has straight up owned since 2013? Do you dare challenge yourself against the intensity of the World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail? Do you simply want to come and see the best in the world do what they do so well as you prepare your mind, body and spirit for that evening's Big 10 Football Championship Game? Come one, come all—in the crowd or at the table, this is The World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship–At The Meijer Tailgate Party on Georgia Street. Don't you ever miss it!
