Monster Burger Slam; Salad King Makes It Hero Week

BLUE JAY'S WAY - There's still time to pick up the Our Men of Steam Whistle 2014 Calendar, available at the Steamwhistle's headquarters for $20. If Mr. January, Ben Taylor, is an indication of how the year will go, it's going to be one wild ride. All proceeds go to The Ontario Ride To Conquer Cancer. [Eaterwire]

AJAX – On February 22nd, Shamrock Burgers holds its 2nd Annual World Monster Sham Eating Contest. The "World" part might be a bit of a stretch since the battle will pit competitive eaters from the small chain's Brooklin, Ajax, and Scarborough locations, but one thing is guaranteed: it ain't gonna be pretty. Contestants have ten minutes to eat as many burgers as humanly possible. Last year, the "lucky" winner from the Scarborough location took down 60 ounces of meat. Deadline for entry is Black Friday, otherwise known as February 14th. Visit their website to enter. [Eaterwire]

CITY-WIDESecond Harvest Food Recuse has deemed February 13th Hero Day 2014, a fundraising initiative to help raise money for the food bank. Not one to be outdone, Salad King (340 Yonge St.) has decided to start earlier (the 9th) and continue through to the 15th. Customers will be asked to round up their bills to the nearest dollar to help the cities' needy. [Eaterwire via @SaladKingTO]
