    Columbus restaurants have enough of a challenge just producing good food.
    A.

    So who peed in your vichyssoise today?

    Statement of fact. We live in the Midwest (away from coastal seafood), we have relatively short produce windows, most of the meat producers in the area are industrial, Ohio’s economy was rough enough even before 2008, bloody awful liquor laws, etc.

    It is a challenge to produce good food in Columbus.

    Ah, I misread the emphasis. Restaurants in Columbus are the issue — not Columbus restaurants per se. Yes, agreed.

    My buddy and I got 6 wings of every flavor at BW3s. We each ate 3 of every flavor and did all the sauces in one sitting. We did the same at Quaker Steak in two trips. Their hottest wings embarrass BW3s. Well BW3s wings are terrible all around, so tiny. Anyway, I’d like to see more food challenges through Columbus. Ohio Deli is on the list.

    Usually when I try the hottest sauce at some wing place, it’s way too salty to enjoy. If you want clean heat, go to CaJohn.

    I used to do food binges with friends when I was in College. Just take an hour and order something from all of your favorite locations and take them home and chow down. Its a challenge in itself to not eat the first item you get before picking up the rest.

    I like the idea of challenges that aren’t purely based on quantity (no disrespect intended to the Dagwood etc.)
    Wings / heat is one.
    Perhaps extreme food could be another. Sadly they have discontinued the pupae dish at Diaspora….

    Great idea! I love spicy hot foods and always require much more wasabi than initially provided when feasting on sushi. Count me in as a contestant.

    I’m ready to eat. But I’d prefer to be involved in a beer drinking, patio sitting, cigarette smoking competition.

    Cajohn’s had a hot sauce challenge at the North Market Fiery Food festival last year. You had to down a tiny medicine spoon sample of 13 hot sauces to enter a drawing for a gift certificate. The last 3 were made with the Jolokia/Ghost pepper. They started very mild and I didn’t have any problems until the last sauce, but after that I couldn’t see to sign up for the drawing.
