CHAL­LENGE TO GET THE TEETH INTO

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - ANDREW BACKHOUSE

A FIT Townsville miner who can “eat like a horse” will set the bar to­day for an eat­ing chal­lenge that has set the town abuzz.

Re­gan An­der­son, owner of the Sham­rock Ho­tel in Townsville, is set­ting a mighty chal­lenge for his cus­tomers; eat three parmi­gianas weigh­ing 2.5kg and an­other kilo­gram of chips and salad in un­der 20 min­utes. Any­one who can do that will eat for free.

An­other $ 500 will be awarded to any­one who can beat the time of Mr An­der­son’s friend Joe Hodges.

He once ate a 3.5kg steak in 10 min­utes flat and will pit his con­sid­er­able eat­ing prow­ess against the parmi­giana chal­lenge to­day to set the bench­mark time.

Any pun­ters who can beat Mr Hodges’ time will get the cash.

Mr An­der­son plans to of­fer the chal­lenge, or some­thing sim­i­lar, ev­ery Wed­nes­day. It will be on the menu for the first time next week. The parmi­giana chal­lenge will cost $ 35 to at­tempt.
