Before Two Guys and a Pie closed shop earlier this year, it saw a succession of pie kings crowned due to their intestinal fortitude. No two were more worthy of fame than Benny Bongo, the last king to be crowned after he ate 12 pies, and Zona, who had until then held the record, with 11 pies.

The pair will face off in a three-pie speed-eating duel on November 30 at Fubar, part of an evening that will include live entertainment as well as beer, wine and shot sales going to maovember. For those who like to take on this city’s pie-eating royalty, we also have space for four challengers.

The entry fee is 100 yuan, with all proceeds to maovember. And to the winner will go a very nice prize and, of course, the glory of pie-eating fame.
