How does shoving your face in a plate of french fries, gravy and cheese curds sound?
Gross and yet somehow yummy if you’re like me. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me back up.
FRI Poutinerie is a new restaurant at Sierra Vista Mall that sells poutine – a Canadian dish of french fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds, with the option to add a whole bunch of other creative toppings. You can read all about the restaurant and five other new ones opening in Clovis in this week’s restaurant column.
FRI Poutinerie is hosting a poutine eating contest on Thursday, Sept. 29 that will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs. Teams of five can win $500 and have until Sept. 25 to enter the contest. Details are here, contact the restaurant to get a form. The entry fee is $15 per person.
The rules: “No hands, no bibs,” says owner Raymond Prime.
Teams must also be dressed in a theme of their choosing.
Work groups, sports teams, fraternities and sororities and anyone else who does mind getting food all over themselves are encouraged to compete.
