I just found out about the 6th Annual Chef One NYC Dumpling Festival tomorrow from 12-5pm! It's too late to register for the Dumpling Eating contest now which is a shame because I think I could have made a good run for the $1000 grand prize (or at least have beat Nate). Gentleman Joe (Joe Manchetti), the defending NYC Dumpling Eating Contest Champ, will be there to defend his title. He ate 66 dumplings in 2 minutes last year. Watch his ESPN interview on youtube. He refutes claims of performance enhancers (ha! not sure what those would be) and says that he's expecting a lot stiffer competition this year. It should be fun to see. Check out the festival deets here and maybe I'll see you there!
