The Fiery Punishment Contest

October 12 @ 8:00 pm

  • Sumo

What has been labelled ‘The World’s Hottest Pizza’ will be featured at Mikey’s Late Night Slice as their pizza of the week starting Monday October, 9th through Sunday, October 16th. The pizza originated as a dare between regular customers and the owners of the shop, and has become a nationally know annual tradition named The Fiery Death w/ Hate Sausage. The star ingredients of the pizza are Carolina Reaper Peppers, Trinidad Scorpion Peppers, and Bhut Jolokia Ghost Peppers sourced from Columbus’ own CaJohn’s Fiery Foods.

When asking CEO Mikey Sorboro if he wanted to have a slice of this year’s improved and hotter rendition, he replied, “Hell no… maybe a bite but that is all that I can handle”. The spicy slices have received social media recognition under the hashtag #FieryDeathPizza where fans have been posting photos of their signed waiver, which is required when purchasing a slice acknowledging the damage they will be causing their mind, body, and spirit for taking part in the travesty. Late Night Slice knows that this pizza is not nearly one of their highest performers, but the high demand for its return from the masochist community will always prevail.

The Fiery Punishment Contest will be held Thursday, October 12th at the Late Night Slice flagship location at 268 South 4th Street. At 8pm, up to ten contestants will race to eat three slices of The Fiery Death w/ Hate Sausage and a raw Carolina Reaper Pepper. The contest rules also require them to stay seated five minutes after consuming all parts and no liquids allowed. The eating contest is free for spectators and milk based cocktails will be available to anyone interested in trying a single slice.
