Martorano's Masters Meatball Eating Championship Set for 11/7 in Vegas!
10/21/2010

The 2nd Annual Martorano's Masters Meatball Eating Championship is set for noon on Sunday, November 7th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas! The 10-minute contest will feature Martorano’s world-famous meatballs prepared by Cook/Owner Steve Martorano. Like last year's event, forks will be required in an effort to fully honor and respect Martorano’s meatball while testing an additional level of skill from the eaters.

The world's #1-ranked eater, Joey Chestnut, will return to defend his title. Chestnut ate 50 meatballs in last year's event to win the $1,500 top prize as well as a monogrammed 'M' necklace, courtesy of Steve Martorano. A $3,000 total cash purse is on-the-line with the second through fourth place finishers receiving $750, $500 and $250, respectively.

Registration for this contest will open on IFOCE.com at 1:00pm EST.
