It is that time of year to head to Stockton California for the Asparagus Festival. The weather is forcasted to be in the high 70's. This will be the perfect temperature for Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut to regain his Asparagus eating crown. Joey lost last year to Patrick Bertoletti's consumption of 7 pounds 5.81 ounces of deep fried Asparagus. This contest will be held at the Main Stage at 12 noon, Saturday.
Our friend Martin Yan will be demonstrating his celebrity cooking skills at various times of the festival. We definitely will be watching and standing by in case Martin needs a hand in his demonstration. There will be plenty of Asparagus treats at 'Asparagus Alley'. Pete Escovido, Blue Oyster Cult, Loverboy and Sha Na Na are several of the scheduled music performers.
Hope to see you there!
April 23-25 Downtown Stockton, California
P.S. I do not think the Ross Sisters will be performing, but I sure wish they were.
Sounds like great fun! My the sisters are flexible.If I did that they need the jaws of life and lots of morphine to untangle me.
Just to let you three know, Ms. Goofy and I are working on a similar act. It may take a while because I am having trouble bending over to fasten my velcrose shoes
I LOVE fried asparagus! I first had it at the best restaurant locally (Puleo's) a few years ago. I googled it and found a recipe for fried asparagus from Stockton. Great stuff!
But 7 lbs? I can't imagine that well known after effect.
Chris, Leave now and we will meet at Center Stage to watch the Asparagus eating contest.
