I don't know if other cities have other events for Superbowl week but here in Philly we have Wingbowl! Contestants chow down on buffalo wings as fast as they can. from wiki: Wing Bowl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Wing Bowl is an annual eating contest founded in 1993 by Philadelphia talk-radio hosts Al Morganti and Angelo Cataldi as a celebration of gluttony. The contest was first broadcast on WIP (AM). About 150 people attended Wing Bowl I (held in a hotel) in 1993 to see a competition between two contestants. The event pits competitive eaters in a chicken wing eating contest. The Wing Bowl is traditionally held on the Friday preceding the Super Bowl. The event, which began as a radio promotion, has grown to encompass television, the Internet, and a contest for women who are termed "the Wingettes." It is currently held at Philadelphia's Wachovia Center, where it is still broadcast live on WIP. There are currently no television deals to broadcast the event live; however, a replay is usually shown on WPSG, Comcast SportsNet, or one of the other local stations within the following week. The Wing Bowl now draws crowds of 20,000 or more. The event is known for an excessive number of intoxicated fans in attendance, an increasing number of women exposing themselves (above the waist and below), and an excessive amount of profanity from fans. The hosts also promote younger women to sign up as "Wingettes" who dress up in lingerie or bikinis while escorting the Wing Bowl contestants to the stage. Attendees planning to sit in the lower bowl are encouraged to bring a rain jacket or a poncho, as fans have thrown objects at the contestants as they made their procession around the rink. Objects have included unopened cans of beer, half-full, opened cans of beer, cups of soda or beer purchased from the concessions, nachos cheese, pretzels with mustard and other food. Many of the contestants in recent years were sponsored by local strip clubs and those clubs also add to the debauchery in the stands. This event was held today and again it was a crazy time, according to my boss who went. I went in 2005 before the Eagles went to the Superbowl and it was grand mayhem. The topless girls, the drunks providing entertainment, the bottomless girls, the topless girls.... The Champion for several years, El Wingador, lives in one of the towns I work in and I've met him several times. This event is nuts! The event was FREE before 2006 and now its $10 tickets to get in.
