Carnegie Deli at The Mirage to Host Inaugural Pickle Eating Contest May 13

May 3, 2011 by  

It’s time to get your pickle on! For the first time ever, Carnegie Deli and The Mirage are partnering with ALL PRO Eating to host a pickle eating contest similar to the one held each year at Carnegie Deli’s original location in New York City.

The contest will feature a combination of professional and amateur eaters, many coming from around the country to compete. Contestants will be competing for a $2,000 cash prize pool.

Professional eaters already scheduled to compete include “Jammin’” Joe Larue, who currently holds the world record in sweet corn with 46 ears in 12 minutes; and “Tuff Tummy” Johnny Excel, who has eaten 8.25 pounds of turkey tacos in 15 minutes.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit or follow The Mirage on Facebook and Twitter.
