Alex Fili is Baltimore’s bread pudding eating champion; Peter Jackson is a competitive sushi eater who also happens to be a local social entrepreneur and vice president of GiveCorps. Tonight, the two competitive eaters will attempt to stuff as much sushi in their mouths as possible — all for a good cause. Oh, and there’s free sushi for you, too, if you stop by…
Stop by RA Sushi in Mount Vernon from 6-8 pm today for $500 worth of free sushi and drinks for anyone who makes a donation of at least $10, and to watch the Fili/Jackson face off. For every $100 donated to Living Classrooms, a non-profit that provides hands-on education to Baltimore City youth, Jackson pledges to eat one roll of sushi as quickly as possible. At 7:15 p.m., the three-minute speed sushi eating will begin. There’s plenty of other fun stuff involved, including raffle prizes
You can watch a video of Jackson’s triumphant win at a previous Maki Madness eating contest here. But will Fili’s youth and enthusiasm give her the edge? (Here’s the Loyola senior totally owning Hampdenfest’s bread pudding contest.) It’s even money at this point; may the best eater win.
