    I know about five friends who tried but failed. I forgot how many pounds it was, if you finish it I believe it's free, but if you don't it's like$30 I think. You have to sign a waiver and stuff I believe.

    Any burger joints, or breakfast places that will do such challenges?

    I'm up for a challenge. That pho's thing seems tempting but I don't really like noodles.

    Yeah, the SmokeEaters one in SJ was horrible. I didn't know how bad habanero oil stuck to your skin even after you washed your hands, and went to take awiz...Never Again.

    Any steak ones?

    And with the pho one, do you have to finish the broth and is there a time limit? I feel like I can do it but $30 if you can't is hells of money fornoodles.

    There is 49oz steak challenge in walnut creek. With the pho challenge, you don't have to drink the soup but you have to finish within 1 hr. I did it in alittle over 30 minutes.
