Jake Melnick's Battle Of The Bhut XXX Wing Eating ContestJake Melnick’s Corner Tap in Chicago, Illinois wants to know – can you handle the heat? Jake’s signature XXX Hot Wings are made with two of the hottest peppers in the world, the Red Savina Habanero and the Bhut Jolokia, the later of which currently holds the title of hottest chile pepper in the Guinness Book of World Records. Jake’s is opening up the playing field with their first-ever “Battle of the Bhut,” XXX Hot Wing Eating Contest, Thursday, November 5 at 6 p.m.

Jake’s is currently seeking contestants for the “Battle of the Bhut,” which is open to wing fans and heat-seeking enthusiasts alike. The winner will walk away with four (4) theatre box tickets to the United Center for a Bulls or Blackhawks game. Theatre box tickets are all-inclusive with free parking, food and drink. The winner will also receive a free private party for 15 of his/her closest friends at Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap, including a food and drink package. Their name will be engraved on the honorary XXX “I Beat the Heat” contest trophy, garnering them a year’s supply of wings at Jake Melnick’s.

To help douse the heat Chicago Firefighters will also be on hand. Jake Melnick’s is partnering up with the Chicago Fire Fighters Union Local 2 for their Fill the Boot Campaign, benefiting the Chicago Fire Department Widows and Orphans Fund.

The contest will begin promptly at 6 p.m. with two five-minute rounds. Two winners will advance to the finals for a three-minute round of eating. In the event of a tie, finalists will be given an additional minute to eat as many wings as possible until a winner is declared.
