Beat BNT's reporter and web editor at lutefisk eating competition
I plan to enter SeafoodFest's lutefisk eating competition tomorrow, July 14. Think you got what it takes to beat me? Well, you're probably right.
The competition takes place at Bergen Place Park, 1 p.m. Cash prizes go to those who "rise above the others" according to the website. Winners are those who can stomach 3 and 1/4 pounds of lutefisk.
Much to the dismay of some Scandinavian-blooded people I know, I have never had lutefisk. Frankly, the look and texture of it scare me. So I expect to lose, sorely.
But it will be fun, I think. So join me!
