Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Darien Hosts Fundraiser for Stamford Fire Safety Foundation

Meat Eating Contest for The Stamford Fire Safety Foundation Fund at Rodizio Grill, Stamford

Stamford Fire Safety Foundation
Update:  The “Last Man Standing” food eating contest is rescheduled for May 9.
Start stretching your stomach because May 9 this Thursday (3/7) at 7 pm there’s gonna be trouble…the gastronomical kind.  Yup, there will be a rotisserie meat eating contest.  We’re talking about Rodizio’s cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and seafood selections that normally you’d get when you flip the cue over to green.  At stake is a $100 cash prize and free Rodizio Grill meals for an entire year.
Look at the steam coming off that sirloin!

Anyone can enter for $30 per person and meat-hungry onlookers can get the Full Rodizio (all you can eat meat and salad bar) for only $30.13…normally $34.99.  If you’d like to enter and think you’ve got the guts (literally), e-mail rodiziogrillct@gmail.com by 5/9.  A generous portion of the entry fees and meals will go towards The Stamford Fire Safety Foundation Fund.  This is a great organization to support because they provide free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  Also, they give out fire prevention materials and give support to the fire departments in Stamford through safety initiatives.
