I am so excited for this weekend! We’re only four days away from one of the biggest, baddest competitive eating events of the year: the Krystal Square Off! Since 2004, competitions have gathered to try and eat as many of the little square burgers as possible, and this year I will be making the trek to Chattanooga to witness the event for the third year in a row!

Competitive eating is pretty addictive. Once you see an event live you just can’t go back to watching it on TV. Not to mention the fact that it will be televised on SportSouth , a channel that (surprisingly) is not included in basic cable in the Midwest. Now…I have to work in Chicago until about 10pm the night before…and Chattanooga is about a ten hour drive away…and there are no convenient (or affordable) planes, trains, or buses to get me there! So what’s a girl to do? A renegade road trip! Normally on road trips I like to take as much time as possible to tour around and make stops…and while I am a full proponent of the journey being as important as the destination, sometimes the destination is really all that matters! Especially when you have to drive through the night!

I’m so pumped for the the trip though, so to get even MORE pumped, this week I will be featuring photos from last year’s Square Off!
