Busy Saturday from 1–4 p.m.? If you don't have plans, why not pay $10 to eat as many Glam Doll donuts as you possibly can? If you can eat more than anyone else, you'll win the chance to eat brains with Joey Chestnut, and if you eat more brains than Joey Chestnut, you’ll win a cool thousand bucks.
Who’s Joey Chestnut? He’s a guy who can eat 68 Nathan’s Hot Dogs and Buns (or HDB, in competitive eating talk) faster than you can max out your Visa card on dehydrator-made kale chips. Why do they hate us? Who knows!
Where was I? Yes, it’s Zombie Pub Crawl time. This year, it’s new and improved! Phil, the 50-foot inflatable zombie, is back and there will be a ferris wheel. And an all-you-can-eat brain taco eating contest, brain tacos provided by AZ Canteen, and not dissimilar to brains that Andrew Zimmern himself has eaten on international television. The brain-eating (and all of Zombie Pub Crawl) takes place on Oct. 12, but the chance to eat these brains can only be won at the Triple Rock this Saturday from 1-4 p.m., by eating as many Glam Doll donuts as you can.
Other big news from Zombie Pub Crawl this year: The charity beneficiaries are Second Harvest Heartland and the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance, which shows you can eat brains and help brains at the same time? And Flock of Seagulls is playing, because time travel.
What else is new? Well, the organizers are a little harried, when asked for some art to run with this story, organizers responded: "Tell Dara that we have a formal policy that we don't provide promotional materials to media unless they mention our snapchat account." So, snapchat! Very important to zombies this year. Make a note of it.
Duly noted? Good! Now, how can you partake?
You need a wristband to get into everything; wristbands are $25 as of now, but leap to $35 on Oct 1. And whatever you do, mark your calendar, Oct. 12 is going to be an epic evening in Minneapolis—30,000 zombies are expected to crawl, if not more. So you’re going to want to be there, or you’re going to want to get a B&B in Stillwater, probably the kind with potpourri and extra scones.
Till then, we have a new working definition of how to earn $1,000 the hard way. First, you eat as many donuts as you can . . .
