Tony Luke’s holds first cheesesteak eating contest

Springfield Ambulance Corps was on scene at Tony Luke’s, in the Springfield Mall, for the first cheesesteak eating contest on April 16, 2011.

Twelve men braved two rounds, two sets of six, in the food court of the mall Saturday afternoon at a chance of becoming theCheesesteak Champion.  Six men participated at a time (no women chose to participate), they sat behind the red-clothed table to eat a cheesesteak as quickly as they could.  This event was well attended by the community.

The Cheesesteak Champion was Carmen Marinaro of Norwood.

Springfield Ambulance Corps was on scene with 2 full crews to assist if needed.  We would like to thank Tony Luke Jr, Bob Bettz and the Springfield Mall for having us.
