    Food Challenges

    I've been watching a lot of Man vs. Food lately and I was wondering if there were any challenges in the Ames/Des Moines area.

    There was a Cityview cover story a few months back. the editor went to Fanatics at Allplay, Rubes Steakhouse, Cactus Bob's BBQ Corral and maybe a few other places.

    You can always come into West Cyde and do the inferno wings challenge. Gotta do 20 wings in 10 minutes and only get 1 glass of water.

    Re: Food Challenges

    Coincedently, a friend of mine was flying back in to Des Moines on Thursday and saw Adam Richman at the DSM airport. I have a feeling he was doing something with the fair, and was also curious on what food challenges that we would have in Des Moines.

    Re: Food Challenges

    There should be a Hickory Park challenge so Man vs. Food could come to Ames. I LOVE that show.

    My wife told me that she heard he was at El Bait Shop and Royal Mile shooting the show and that you had to buy tickets to the show.

    Re: Food Challenges

    Not sure if they still have it but I did a margarita challenge at La Fuente's when I was in school. I can't remember the exact details but it wasn't very challenging.

    The only pizza challenge I know of in Central Iowa is the Maui Waui one.

    Re: Food Challenges

    From what I've heard, the man who owns the place is introducing his challenge.

    Thats kinda the reason why they did that. Most people think it helps but it doesn't. Gotta make it challenging. The original challenge was 20 wings but you didnt have any time restraints or anything. So they included a time limit and drink restrictions.
