Thursday: Wing Eating Contest
We guess you can make a contest out of pretty much anything, and tonight's event at the Rock & Roll Hotel proves it. They'll be hosting a wings-eating contest starting at 9 PM, with H Street chefs doling out their best wings, and folks competing to see who can eat the most (and the hottest) wings. $10 gets you in, and sign-up starts right at 9.
